What a view of Lake Bohinj the Church of St.John the Baptist has, this Romanesque-Baroque church dates back to the late 10th to mid 11th century, from the outside there are frescoes depicting St.Christopher, as the sign out the front of the church states St.Christopher was the patron saint of horse cart drivers in medieval times. The church is slightly different to others that we have seen in that it is enclosed by a stone wall and has an adjoining building which has no doors or windows, looks like a covered patio/stable.

There are three churches around the lake that are all very similar and all very pretty. I have included a photo of one of the other for an example.

If you are around the lake, take a stop at this church, even if closed. A worthwhile example of local religiosity and care for tradition.

If you are in the Bohinj Lake area, do not miss this small church with nice murals, impressively well kept.
