Sts. Cyril and Methodius Church (Ljubljana)

Church of Holy Cyril and Methodius in Ljubljana is a church of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Slovenia. It stands between the Tivoli Street (Slovene: Tivolska cesta) and the Prešeren Street (Prešernova cesta), to the north from the Museum of Modern Art and to the west from the National Gallery of Slovenia.

The church has five domes with golden crosses at their top. It was built in 1940 upon the plans of the architect Momir Korunović.[1] The frescoes in the interior have been painted by Dragomir Jašović and Mišo Mladenović. The iconostasis is work of the painter Mirko Šubic. He created it in 1940.[1]

The ground foundation was blessed by the Patriarch Varnava of Serbia in 1932. The church was blessed on 23 October 2005 by the Patriarch Pavle of Serbia at the presence of the president Janez Drnovšek and Ljubljana's Roman Catholic metropolite Alojz Uran. This is also the date of official opening of the church. At the blessing they have placed the relics of Saint Atanasy, which were brought from Vatican by Tomáš Špidlík and symbolised the integration of one Christian unity (Orthodox and Catholic). Godfather of the church became the basketball player Radoslav Nesterović. In 2009, the church was visited by the Serbian president Boris Tadić. Since 10 April 2010, the church has a status of a cultural monument of local significance.[1]
