Pope John Paul II

In 1996, two enhancements were installed on the cathedral in the form of two large bronze doors, one on the west facade and the second on the south facade adjacent to Ciril-Metodov Trg. These were added to commemorate the visit of Pope John Paul II. The stunning west door is decorated with a raised relief schemes depicting 1,200 years of Christianity in Slovenia including scenes of the Crusades through to the independence of Slovenia, whilst the south door is decorated with the raised relief of the bishops of Ljubljana.

    It’s interesting how John-Paul I has been airbrushed out of papal history now.
