  • St. Peter's Church John the Baptist is situated on a small hill on the eastern shore of Lake Bohinj, right next to the stone bridge passed through the river Sava Bohinjka flowing from the lake. It was built before 1300, and although it looks seemingly unseemedly, it is worth a visit to see the beautiful frescoes among the most precious in Slovenia. In the 18TH century, a Baroque bell tower with an onion-covered shovoid roof was added to the church. Admission to the church and the bell tower costs 3 euros but it is worth spending it to see with your own eyes the ancient frescoes and admire the view of the lake and the surrounding mountains from the summit of the bell tower.

  • St. Peter's Church Jana Chrzciciela is located on a small hill above the lake Bohinj and together with a stone bridge is the largest attraction of this area. Built before 1300 years, it has retained many architectural styles. Interesting is the wood carved head of St. John of 1380 year. The entire interior of the church contains magnificent frescoes, the oldest of which are dated to the 13TH century. The frescoes depict the characters 72 saints and other motives. In the church you will find three different altarways, from different centuries. At the church there is a bell tower, which is worth a visit to admire the views of the 4 sides of the world. In one of the windows facing north you will find the marked part of the emblem of Slovenia-TRIGLAV and in very good weather this highest peak of Slovenia should be visible precisely on the background of this metal mark. The entrance ticket to the church and the tower costs 5 euros.

  • Beautiful small church in an idyllic landscape.
  • The 15th century church, a blend of Roman and Gothic, is located in the village of Libercevraz, an elegant landmark at the beginning of Lake Bosini, and is a tranquil and elegant attraction in front of the 20-metre-long small stone across the Peshawar-Bozhong River.
