in the 1930s


In Bogojina, in 1925, the construction of a new church began based on the plans of the architect Jože Plečnik. The original plan was to demolish the 14th-century old church because it proved too small for the congregation. Plečnik designed a new church, which he later modified, thus making the old church part of the new one. Another feature of the new church is the ceiling made of logs and decorated with handmade ceramics. A photograph from the 30s of the 20th century shows the huge church from the west with its distinctive cylindrical bell tower.
