I can highly recommend the visit the Franciscan Monastery Novo mesto. It has the most stunning monuments of Dolenjska, a beautiful and rich history library that holds history of so many generations. Visits are possie by appointment, also done in English! Highly impressed!
The monastery has a very unique architecture, which makes it an outstanding buliding in Novo Mesto. The interior is quite a surprise, it's a very sophisticated church. Definitely a must in novo mesto. There are two side chapels inaide, don't miss them. One is on the left (you can enter directly from the street too) and the other one can be reached if you go downstairs on the right.
