Trnovo Church, originally built in the mid-18th century, was reconstructed in Neo-Historical style in 1855 and renovated after the earthquake of 1895 in Neo-Romanesque style. It is linked to the name of the poet France Prešeren, since it was here that he met his great love, Julija Primic, to whom he dedicated his most beautiful poems. The interior of the church features a beautiful altar image of St John the Baptist by the Baroque painter V.Metzinger, two wall paintings by M.Sternen, a wooden statue of the heart of Jesus by F.Kralj, several Plečnik works of art and a pipe organ dating from 1864 by Goršič, a local man from Krakovo.
