Cathedral of St. Nicholas (Stolnica Sv. Nikolaja), Ljubljana

4.5
Visit one of the city's landmarks and a prime example of mature Baroque in Slovenia at Cathedral of St. Nicholas (Stolnica Sv. Nikolaja). 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. Put Cathedral of St. Nicholas (Stolnica Sv. Nikolaja) on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ljubljana trip planner.

  • Beautiful cathedral in the capital of Slovenia. Relatively comparable to other buildings of this type. Nothing extraordinary.
