This small Baroque style church dates back to the mid 18th century. Church has camelback wooden roof which was very common in 18th century Slovenian churches. Main door dates to 1743 and bell tower to 1744. Grand in style but not size.

There are three churches around the lake that are all very similar and all very pretty. I have included a photo of one of the other for an example.

If you are around the lake, take a stop at this church, even if closed. A worthwhile example of local religiosity and care for tradition.

Very beautiful tiny littke church at the eastern part of Lake Bohinj. It looks fine from the outside, but the inside is fine and cosy too. Go inside after walking around or swiming in fresh waters of Bohinj.
