Cathedral of St Nicholas information
A church has stood here since the 13th century, but the existing twin-towered building dates from the start of the 18th century. Inside it’s a vision of pink marble, white stucco and gilt and contains a panoply of baroque frescoes. Have a look at the magnificent carved choir stalls, the organ and the angels on the main altar.
Two stunning bronze doors were added in 1996 to commemorate the late Pope John Paul II’s visit – the (main) west door facing the Bishop’s Palace symbolises 1250 years of Christianity in Slovenia; the six bishops on the south door fronting Ciril Metodov trg depict the history of the Ljubljana diocese.
