Ljubljana Cathedral (Slovene: ljubljanska stolnica), officially named St. Nicholas's Church (cerkev sv. Nikolaja, unofficially also šenklavška cerkev), also named St. Nicholas' Cathedral (Slovene: stolnica sv. Nikolaja), the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, or simply the Cathedral (Stolnica), is a cathedral in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Originally, Ljubljana Cathedral was a Gothic church. In the early 18th century, it was replaced by a Baroque building. It is an easily recognizable landmark of the city with its green dome and twin towers and stands at Cyril and Methodius Square (Ciril-Metodov trg) by the nearby Ljubljana Central Market and Town Hall.
A Baroque church whose detailed impressive interior has several frescoes by Guilio Quaglio. The ceiling is anazing! The relief on the unique main entrance door shows the history of Christianity on Slovenian lands. The side entrance door is a relief showing the 20th century bishops of Lithuania.
Gorgeous little cathedral. Not as pumptous as some bigger cathedral, but very decadent. There is an amazing organ divided into several groups and the sound is magnificent. The entrance door is quite new and depicts a history of Christianity, with on top Pope John Paul 2nd. The cathedral is technically for prayer only so respect and silence is asked. I was saying a prayer while my wife was taking pictures (credits to her for the pictures)
Very rich decoration, and a wonderfull organ musical instrumen.
ONE OF THE DEFINING LANDMARKS OF LJUBLJANA. WHILE I LIKED THE INTERIOR OF THE CHURCH, I BELIEVE THE CATHEDRAL STANDS OUT MORE FOR IT'S EXTERNAL APPEARANCE WHICH GIVES ITS CHARACTER TO THE CITY.
One of the main attractions in old town. Decorative interiors.
Amazing. In the heart of the city. Worth taking time and really enjoying it.
Amazing cathedral in downtown Ljubljana. Must see.
one of the cathedrals in Ljubljana. just in city centre.
It is really amazing place. If you entered this cathedral, you could feel something special. In my case, I am not catholic but I could feel peaceful.
Very nice cathedral small but full
