The outside fresco was beautiful. The comments were written and I found out that this church was built in 10th century. I went inside and I was shocked. It is beautifully preserved. The inside frescos were telling the story. The domed construction was nicely done....More

Hours for admission may be sketchy (presume the docent needs to grab a bite or whatever, so read her note and come back). It was so worth the effort! Our docent told us the church dates back to the 13th century and the outer hall...More

It's a must, while coming to Bohinj. Very little church is on a perfect setting. It's for sure the most photogenic church in SLovenia.

Set on the shores of Lake Bohinj and accessed via an old stone bridge was the church of St John which dated to 1742 but the info board suggested a dwelling had been there since the 10th C. It was quite pretty but our view...More
