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.

It was special to be here for a service and watch everyone come and go saying their prayers and blessings. Our choir sang several songs and fell in love with the ambience of the place. It's easily accessible and right in the centre of town. Free entry.

This pink church can not be missed. It is in the center of the Old City. We were able to go inside and luckily found a mass that had just started around 3 pm. The church dates from the 16th century

We were at the Franciscan Church at about 13:00-14:00 on 8 Nov and it was closed. It opened again from 15:00. There was a sign at each of its doors. We were lucky to attend mass at about 16:00 or so. We are not very good with architecture of churches but what we wanna share is the lighting. We noticed... More

The church itself is small and very baroque (I can't help but think that St. Francis would not approve of all of that ostentation. Great landmark and very picturesque on the outside.
