The magnificent Cathedral of St Nicholas, dedicated to the patron saint of sailors and built in the Baroque style, dates from the early 18th century but was renovated and had beautiful 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.
