This little church with it's wooden porch and frescoes, standing beside the stone bridge at Ribcev Laz is one of the iconic images of Lake Bohinj. If you are staying in Ribcev Laz as we did then it also offers a good reference point that you can use to head home! It's often only open short hours at many times of the year and it seems that these do vary so it's best to check the sign on the door to see when you can go inside. It's only a very small church and so looking inside only takes a few minutes, but I think it's worth sparing those few minutes. The exterior frescoes have been worn away in many places but a few can still be seen for what they were meant to be. Interestingly there is a figure with six toes on one foot on the south wall.

Address: Next to the stone bridge in Ribcev Laz
Directions: Head for the lake shore at Ribcev Laz (by the Hotel Jezero) and you'll be only a few steps away across the stone bridge.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
