Žalec

Church of St Nicholas

more than a year ago
A virtually brand new church by Slovene standards, the massive yellow Church of St Nicholas only dates back to 1903, when the town's increasing wealth from the hops trade necessitated the construction of the new more commensurate place of worship. However, aficionados of Renaissance period religious architecture and art will be happy to find that many elements from the Žalec's previous incarnations of St Nicholas have been preserved here, including the portal of the bell tower, many valuable monuments and several impressive oil paintings. Outside of official church services (which aren't really appropriate times for tourists to visit anyway) the interior of the church can only be seen by prior arrangement.
