Dedicated to the patron saint of sailors, the magnificent Cathedral of St Nicholas is built in the Baroque style. Dating back to the early 18th century, it was renovated and had beautifully-carved bronze doors added for the Pope's visit in 1996. The doors depict the development of Christianity in Slovenia and give way to a richly ornate interior below the impressive cupola and stunning Giulio Quaglio frescoes.
