Serb Orthodox Church


As you would expect in Slovenia, since it was once a part of Yugoslavia, there is a very large population of persons originating from the other ex-Yugoslav republics, most notably Serbia and Bosnia.
The Bosnian Muslims here as yet have no Mosque to go to, not one in the whole country, because the population of Slovenia has voted against it in the past. Talks still continue though, and it is likely that some time in the future it will exist.
The Serbs who are of the Orthodox denomination do have a church of their own, and this is it in the picture above.
It sits just outside Tivoli Park, and as far as I am aware it is the only one around.
Quite an impressive-looking building, I like it.
