Not easily accessible, but worth a stop

One can reach this church from Skocjan caves in a 30 min drive. To cases, call the number written at the gate, even if it is outside the working hours.

This is not the easiest place to find - you have to watch carefully for the signposts and my sat nav had some difficulty but it is worth the effort to get there and see the fortified church. The Church itself is diminutive but the frescoes within are fabulous. However the tour... well... The lady keeeping the shop on the... More

The trip from Koper takes a while but the scenery between two types of scenic hills is worth seeing, and the frescoes in the church (hidden for centuries) are bright and delightful.

I'm not a religious person but the frescos are amazing. The way they tell their story is truly impressive.

This fortified church is perched on a grassy knoll above the town. It looked like a well fortified church and had commanding views down the valley which in itself was dotted with many small hamlets each seemingly with their own hilltop church. Inside we were given a short pre-recorded tour and the lady pointed out the various frescoes as the... More

The church contains beautiful frescoes, most notably the "Dance of the Dead". It's a small church, but it's a worthwhile stop for those interested in art, church architecture/design, or history.

The look of the church from outside is just like other churches found in Slovenia. But entering the church and see those wall paintings it's not easy to find elsewhere. For us foreigners a guide is needed as she explains the meanings of those pictures and the meaning behind Dance of Death. Though the church was built long time ago... More

We were looking for a place to stop on our way from Ljubliana to Croatia. This is somewhat tricky to find, and about 15-20 minutes off the highway, but do stop! It is at the outskirts of a very tiny town in Hrastovlje of adorable terra cotta-roofed homes, along a ravine. The church looks somewhat nondescript and small from the... More

The church has a nice history and the wall of dancing dead is amazing. Sadly it's not a free entranche, you have to pay, but non the less, once you visited you don't regret.
