Cathedral of St. Nicholas, Ljubljana

(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Visit one of the city's landmarks and a prime example of mature Baroque in Slovenia at Cathedral of St. Nicholas. Modeled after Rome's most famous Jesuit church Il Gesu, the building replaced an earlier Gothic church, dominating the skyline with its twin towers and green dome. The most prominent features of the exterior are the elaborately decorated wooden and bronze doors and Roman tombstones built in the exterior walls. Notice the keystone with Christ near the entrance, which was preserved from the older church. The Gothic pieta and statues of significant bishops and saints stand in the niches of the facade. The interior features a painted dome and the altar of Corpus Christi surrounded by angels.

  • Worth the visit but right up there. It is a typical Catholic Church. It's good to learn about the front door.

  • Outside basic with access to more difficult identification because you do not configure as the mammoth façade that you would expect and has a modern very nice portal, counterpoint a baroque interior and gilded with painted ceilings. Beautiful black and white chequered floor alternate and contrast with the gold trim, organ, pulpit. Well worth a visit.

  • Very quick visit on new years day but must say I wasn't impressed. Nice well kept but nothing more.
