According to tradition the church was built in the very earliest days of Kranjska Gora’s history. It was built in honour of the Virgin Mary and was called the church of Mary at Beli prod. Only the bell tower, built from sandy blocks in Romanesque style remains from the original church. The existing church dates back to the late Gothic period and was built in 1510 by master builder Jernej Firtaler from Villach. A certain Carinthian influence is evident mainly in the nave vault, which is supported by internal pillars and decorated with a web of ribs which makes it one of the most interesting of its kind in Slovenia.

Loved the silver leaf of Madonna and Child. Delicate work. Noteworthy fact. Church only received one shell damage during siege! Four Corinthian columns are very nice. The dome and cross along with another symbol above is visible almost over city even though it's near harbor. Beautiful steps leading up to church which would be nice wedding scene. Lovely organ pipes... More

This is a pretty church, right in the centre of the village. Sadly it was not possible to go into the body of the church, but the frescoes can be seen from the lobby. The bells ring all the time - it's a very attractive sound.

The tower of this church (the parish church of Kranjska Gora) was built in the 14th century. The remainder of the church was built in the 16th century and is well worth a visit

Situated in the centre of Kranjska Gora. We didn't go inside but it's not hard to miss when in Kranjska Gora. You won't have to go looking for it as it'll likely find you.

The outside of the church, especially the bell tower, is just a tad ordinary... but the interior is stunning and very beautiful

This is a very nice small church in the center of town. This town is very small but very lovely. I went to go in the church but when you entered there was a small room hwere you could look through glass. You cant get in but you can take a look
