Church of the Ascension of Christ – Plečnik’s Church

A white dove stands on the slope of the hill where Bogojina vineyards fade into Goričko. The locals call it the Plečnik’s Church. The Church of the Ascension of Christ in Bogojina is one of the most interesting buildings of the 20th century and the most famous shrine of Pomurje. Plecnik’s masterpiece, built in the years 1924-1927 on the side of an older Baroque church, will enchant you with a peaceful atmosphere, serenity and concentration. It will invite you to enter through the old main entrance with a bell tower with typical Plečnik art forms and a facade above the entrance, where there is a large pillar with a statue of Christ. The provincial building tradition is evident in the interior of the church, where Plečnik used components of ancient Christian architecture with stone pillars and a wooden ceiling. This devine building will most certainly enchant your eyes, as it is adorned with numerous products made by potters from Prekmurje.
