Church of the Mary’s Assumption (Bled-Slovenia)
If You believe the old legends of the locals, at the site of this church once stood a temple devoted to the Slav goddess Živa. The temple was destroyed in the wars between the pagans and Christians, who destroyed it and built the church. It was restored in the 15th century in the Gothic style, but was destroyed in 1509, requiring a renewal, this time in Baroque style. Only a few frescoes and a wodeen statue of Our Lady were preserved. Today’s church was last renovated in the 17th century, the main altar covered with gold dates back to 1747. The 54-meter bell consists of three bells made in Ljubljana. The legend says that the one who rings the bells gives honor to the Lady and his wishes will be fulfilled.
