“Beautiful both inside and outside”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

It's the pink building in the main square. Outside is calm and cute. Inside is rich in decorations and warm.

“Great opportunity to see a renovation in progress!”
Reviewed May 1, 2011

This church was right next door to our hotel. It took us a couple of days to figure out that the churches in Ljubljana haven't yet caught on to tourism... so they open for mass and a few hours in between.
We stopped in after mass one day on the way back to our hotel. As is apparently normal in Ljubljana, the lights were off when a mass wasn't being held. But as it was daytime, we could easily see. The church is very pretty, but without all the gold you see in other churches in Ljubljana (and much of Europe). The paintings were in the process of being restored, and we got a unique opportunity to see one side where the painting has been restored, and the other side, where the paintings were very faded and waiting to be restored. The ceiling also has impressive, but faded, paintings.
I thought this was a great experience, as I had never been in a church that is in use today where there were still paintings being restored/waiting to be restored.
It is definitely worth visiting if you are in Ljubljana.

“Nice church just in the centre of Ljubljana”
Reviewed September 30, 2010

This church is also called church of the annunciation.
This church has a particular and attractive colour (a pale pink).
As the name is telling the church is Franciscan and its style is typical baroque so you can find some nice chapels and some frescos.
