Good church

Worth a visit inside as well as outside. Not overly ornate a nice place for a few moments of reflective thought

The church dominates Preseren Square; it can be easily seen from the Triple Bridge; and it shows up in my photos taken from the Fountain of Three Rivers.

Walked through the church just before noon last Saturday. Very beautiful and peaceful. Wonderful frescoes and stained glass! Must see when you are in Ljubljana.

This church with the pink facade is the iconic building in Ljubljana. It's in the main square in the old town, and is really quite beautiful and different to churches I've seen elsewhere.

Open, not too many people, a lovely look around the interior. Not too large, so it won't take too long. Wish I'd been here for choir or mass, as some reviewers were.

Located in Preseren square, this is another of Ljubljana's attractive churches. I didn't get to go inside this one, but it still looks good from the outside and is pretty obvious when you're passing through Preseren square.

The stunning building and opulent interior bring awe to the visit. Even the doors make visitors feel the weight of the ages.

This is one of the unmistakable landmarks of Ljubljana, situated in Preseren Square. The interior is beautiful. We were there during a mass, and it was filled with worshippers.
