Tel: 386 1 231 0684's insider take:

This is as close as Slovenia gets to St. Peter's. The vast Baroque wedding cake was built in the first years of the 1700s after the Turks destroyed Ljubljana's original cathedral. Inside there are eerily lifelike trompe l'oeil frescoes by Giulio Quaglio and graceful altar angels by the sculptor Francesco Robba from 1750. In fact, many of the most attractive features were added after the building was completed. Until 1841 the domed ceiling was another trompe l'oeil painting on a flat ceiling. The Italianate fresco there today was actually painted by Slovene artist Matevž Langus in 1844.
