Visited at the end of a service when all of the lights were on. Beautiful altar and side chapels. The organ was an amazing site to see. Also take note of the ceiling. This is a must see in Ljubljana.

This church is worth to visit. It's lovely inside and located right at the main square of Ljubljana. I especially recommend visiting the church in December or January, because they prepare a lovely nativity scene.

A beautiful building. Advertised as being closed between 12-3pm (but we still were allowed in just after 12) Free to enter and beautiful. Worth a visit if you're near by, only takes a few mins
