Church is a mixture of stiles. Medieval part of building nearly disappeared. Church is Baroque structure with many fine altars. Main altar is work of Francesco Robba. Side chapel with stucco work and many sculptures is also interesting. Paintings don’t have the same quality. From outside you recognize this church with huge tower. It was added after 1895. Church is... More

St James Church is located just outside the Old Town and is visible from the River. I visited a couple of times and, although the interior was locked and in darkness both times, I was able to peer through a glass door, which let in enough light to be able to see the interior. The interior is beautifully Baroque but... More

This is another lovingly restored baroque church, located some distance from the old town. The exterior is quite attractive with distinctive yellow paint. The interior fairly typical of other churches of this style.

one of the many Ljubljana's churches. It is nice, rich decorated but not outstanding. So not worth a special walk, but there this is also nice area of old town to explore...

It is a bit away from the main tourist area and so less busy, at least when we went. At first sight it looks like you can only see the interior through the glass door, but when we tried the doors it was possible to enter. It was late in the day and the light inside was poor, but even... More

It is situated in the old town, on the opposite side of pedestrian area from the Tripple bridge. It looks lovely inside too, although we could not enter it. The only way to see it was through the iron bars at the doors.

It took us 4 tries before we made it into this church. It does not seem to be left open like other catholic churches. This church is not as opulent as the Franciscan or St Nicholas churches. The ceiling not as high or the ceiling murals as large (pretty small actually). There are several nice side altars with plenty of... More

Our hotel/apartment waa just licated next to this church, so we visited this church directly after our arrival. The church is really beautiful with some impressive art. Really worth a visit.

A bit out of the old town but well worth a visit. The church is beautiful and around there are some nice sceneries.
