In the centre of Litija, on the site of a church which was already mentioned by Johann Weikhard von Valvasor in his Glory of the Duchy of Carniola, the church of St. Nicholas (“cerkev Sv. Nikolaja”) – the patron saint of boatmen – has grown over time, and has been completely renovated in the past decades. Since 2013, the church houses a mosaic entitled Transfiguration on the Mountain (“Spremenjenja na gori”) by Marko Rupnik, a Slovenian Prešeren Award winner mosaic artist and theologian.

Do not miss the collection about the boating on the Sava River at the Town Museum of Litija!
