We visited the church in July, 2017. It is a very beautiful church. The church is on Preseren Square and was built in 1646. This is a must see attraction in Ljubljana.

Right in the central square it is something that is so typical of Ljubljana with its pink facade. Lovely on the inside too.

Just dropped in and mass was on with a small choir, but the sound was beautiful. Not overly ornate, this is a very pretty church.

Visited at the end of a service when all of the lights were on. Beautiful altar and side chapels. The organ was an amazing site to see. Also take note of the ceiling. This is a must see in Ljubljana.
