ChurchesEdit

Saint John the Baptist Church
Holy Spirit Church

The local church dedicated to John the Baptist stands just outside the settlement on the shore of Lake Bohinj in the former settlement of Sveti Janez. It is built in a west-east orientation and is surrounded by an old cemetery wall with two entrances. Its origins are Romanesque but it was rebuilt in Gothic style in the 15th century and vaulted in the early 16th century, when some of the frescos were painted by Jernej of Loka.

A second church, dedicated to the Holy Spirit, stands by the road on the way to the far side of the lake in the former settlement of Sveti Duh. It was built in the mid-18th century.[3]
