Saint Agnes's Church

The parish church, dedicated to Saint Agnes,[2] was first mentioned in documents from 1232 and was Romanesque in its origins, although it has been frequently rebuilt and expanded, most recently in 1860.[3]

Trivia[edit]

In August 2019, an 8-meter (26 ft) tall wooden effigy of Donald Trump appeared in the village.[4] The sculpture was relocated to Moravče in December 2019 and destroyed in an arson attack in January 2020.[5][6]
