Overview
More
According to tradition the church was built in the very earliest days of Kranjska Gora’s history. It was built in honour of the Virgin Mary and was called the church of Mary at Beli prod. Only the bell tower, built from sandy blocks in Romanesque style remains from the original church. The existing church dates back to the late Gothic period and was built in 1510 by master builder Jernej Firtaler from Villach. A certain Carinthian influence is evident mainly in the nave vault, which is supported by internal pillars and decorated with a web of ribs which makes it one of the most interesting of its kind in Slovenia.

A very typical, and well maintained church in the center of the village. Good to keep these old landmarks unspoiled by the modern buildings designed for the skiing community

Old beautiful church in the centre of Kranjska gora. It's specially nice during the Christmas time. Inside you can find figures from Bible. Outside, in front of the church there are small wooden houses selling souvenires.
