When u walk outside and it is bloody freezing and u walk In a heated church👍👍 Nice church next to monastery, u can explore plenty. We could even enjoy music, sojenje was playing on organ.
Very interesting history behind it, I love how the whole Novo Mesto is full of history info tables, appreciated. This one has a history with a Bosnian franciscan monk who was running from the ottoman empire. The outside looks surreal with the palm trees in front of it A 2 minute stroll sidewalk from the main street.
