Cathedral of St Nicholas, Ljubljana, Slovenia by 


1278 viewings on 9 December, 2014.

A church has stood in this place since the 13th century, but the existing twin-towered Cathedral is from the early 18th century. Inside it is a baroque palace of pink marble, white stucco and gilt with frescoes by barogue master Guilio Quaglio and 18th century artist Matevz Langus.

Two bronze doors were added in 1996 to commemorate Pope John Paul 11’s visit – the main one symbolises 1250 years of Christianity in Slovenia.

This is the south door of the Cathedral with the bishops depicting the history of the Ljubljana diocese.

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.
