CERKEV SV. JERNEJA (The Parish Church of St. Bartholome )
The first parish church was built around 1338 and was situated in place of the later chapel of St. Cross in the old graveyard. This church was pulled down in 1339.
A chapel of the Counts of Turjak was originally situated in place of today’s church. The parish church of St Fabian and Sebastian was built in Neo-Romanesque style and is considered one of the biggest sacral buildings in Slovenia . It was designed by a Viennese architect F. Schmidt. The construction of stone walls with intermittent hidden passages of brick lasted from 1901 to 1903. The interior of the three-naval basilica was painted by Peter Železnik, and the apse with the Stations of the Cross by Slavko Penglov. The organ used to be one of the largest in former Yugoslavia - they are the work of master Franc Jenko.
Fantastic architecture and a beautiful old church!
Thank you for the interesting informations.
Best regards from Hungary, Csaba

Impressing building, and I like you explanaitions about the building. I had to admit, my decision to go to Slovenia this spring was influenced by Poslovni-svet and especially this pic.

Thank you picsonthemove for comment...There are a lot great places in Slovenia, one of the famous place is Bled(press here about Bledand it is a very beautiful country. If u are located in Ljubljana(capital city) u have 1 H to Croatia, to Austria, to the see coast, to Italy and a little more to Hungary. The shape of Slovenia looks like a chicken(check here Slovenia map).
