f you are a lover of Late Gothic art, you should definitely see the Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary in Kranjska Gora. Originally it was named the Church of Our Lady of the White Gravel, but only a brick belfry in the Romanesque style was preserved.  In 1510, today’s church was designed by master Jernej Firtaler from Villach. The Corinthian influence is particularly visible in the nave arch, which is decorated with intertwined ribs and is the most interesting arch of this type not only in the Upper Sava Valley, but also in Slovenia. 

 

In front of the church stand the busts of men, important to the Upper Sava Valley - Josip Lavtižar, Simon Robič and Lovrenc Lavtižar.
