Novo Mesto Cathedral, Novo Mesto

4.4
Novo Mesto Cathedral (Slovene: novomeška stolnica, novomeška stolna cerkev) or St. Nicholas's Cathedral (stolnica sv. Nikolaja) in Novo Mesto is the seat of the Diocese of Novo Mesto and a landmark of the town. The stone church is located on a hill above the Krka River. Until 7 April 2006, when the Diocese of Novo Mesto was established, it was a chapter church. Therefore, it is also known as St. Nicholas's Chapter Church (kapiteljska cerkev or simply Kapitelj). It is distinguished by a combination of Gothic and Baroque architecture and a broken longitudinal axis because the chancel is higher than the nave.

  • On the top.of the hill, main church, but not so big as we expected.. Beautifull gate, made like a sculpture - Holy Door..  more »
  • Quite a big cathedral situated on the top in old city with a great view. Renovated and nice inside, and it seemed to always be open, so you should pay a visit if in the neighbourhood.  more »
