    Ljubljana (German Ljubljana, Lubiana Italian, Latin Labacum) is the capital and at the same time the largest city in Slovenia.

    There are at least two explanations for the origin of the Slovenian name of the city: after the one he comes from
    ljubljena (beloved town), aluviana after the other from the Latin name of the River.
    Here, you can learn more about this interesting city!

    Church of St. Michael - Cerkev sv. Mihaela

    The Church of St. Michael, built between 1937 and 1940 at Ljubljana Marshes, belongs among the architect Jože Plečnik's most original creations.
    It combines the features of Greek temples with those of the churches of the Slovenian Kras region, which are characterised by open belfries as
    part of their front façades.

    Due to the marshy ground, the church is built on piles. Its structure is partly made of wood. An interestingly designed stairway leads to
    the doorway in the church's slim belfry with multiple openings. The general design of the church was derived from Plečnik's design for the
    National and University Library in Ljubljana. Like the library's reading room, the church's nave lies transversely to the long stairway leading to it.

    For cost saving reasons, the inside of the church, slightly reminiscent of Japanese Shinto temples, was built with affordable materials.
    The church's four supporting pillars, painted with geometric designs, were made from concrete sewer pipes.
    The rest of the elements of the interior were made of wood (donated by peasants from nearby villages), which gives the church a warm
    and cosy feeling to it. The most interesting furnishings are the altar and the chancel, the latter designed on the model of wooden balconies
    typical of traditional Slovenian farmhouses.

    Sorry for my bad English!
