Amazing church, unique frescoes. Something you never saw before. Definitely a must to visit. And it's only 2 EUR.
Lovely church next to Lake Bohinj. You can't miss it if you want to ...
Very nice place to see. But it's a church like every other church. You will have more of your day, if you will go walking around the lake or if you will go skiing. In the summer you can also swim in the lake
Nice place to visit, great scenic walking route around lake Bohinj, good spot to take a coffe break or to get something to eat.
Really nice small church.
