Lonely Planet review

South of City Park is the square named after Anton Martin Slomšek (1800–62), the Slovenian bishop and politician beatified 1999, the first Slovene to earn such distinction.

Parts of the imposing Cathedral , date from the 13th century and it shows elements of virtually every architectural style from Romanesque to modern. Of special interest are the flamboyant Gothic sanctuary and the gilded choir stalls, as well as the lovely modern stained glass. The grand building across the park to the west is the University Library .
