Križevniška Church (also called Križanke Church or Church of Our Lady of Mercy), an astonishing sacral building in the centre of Slovenia’s capital, offers an intimate haven in the very midst of the city’s urban hustle and bustle. The Church is a part of Križanke, the enchanting complex of the former Monastery which was first mentioned in 1268 when the Knights of the Cross (Križ in Slovene language stands for Cross) settled in the complex. The Church, torn down in early 18th century and then rebuilt in Baroque style, bearing a rich front, articulated by pilasters and a cupola, was the first Baroque building in the region.

In a close proximity of the venue, the National and University Library stands its ground as the exquisite cultural monument designed by the famous Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik. While right from the Church’s doorstep one can step to the beautiful 18th Century square, adjacent to Križanke, surrounded by trees and topped with several monuments dedicated to historical figures spanning from Napoleon to 20th Century writers, academics, composers, etc. Besides, one can easily reach City Museum of Ljubljana with its 2000 years old collections, or take a stroll to the scenic Ljubljanica river decorated with colorful houses and numerous bars and top-notch restaurants, and to the sitting spots on the river’s shore to contemplate the city’s buzz.
