Thursday Doors 12/8/21: Ljubljana Rakovnik

Today only one church and its doors, but what a church! I’ve been seeing it from afar all my life, and only now thought to approach. I was blown away. It looks mighty Italian and yet it’s in Ljubljana, my birthtown in Slovenia, which I’m about to leave once again.

By next Thursday I’ll be back in Tuscany. Time went by so fast.

No captions today but these photos were taken in this order in six minutes after the lovely time with friends as described in my yesterday’s birthday post.

After we dropped them off, I pointed to the church and told amore: “Go there!” He waited for me in the car while I approached but didn’t enter since a Mass was in process (I think).

This is Our Lady of Help Parish Church in Rakovnik, Ljubljana, a Roman Catholic church that could easily be somewhere in Italy too. If it were there, I’d climb mountains to find it on the basis of a single photo.

Here are several so that you can follow my gaze from the church to the neighbouring basketball court to the guy’s face on the wall (what’s up with that?) back to the church from all possible angles and finally to its doors. They are nice but it’s the totality that is mighty pretty. Have a look.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.
