St. Ursula is one of the many small churches on the slopes and peaks of the hills around Polhov Gradec in Central Slovenia which provide for some fabulous photo motifs. Where to in Slovenia features micro locations for mobile photography and sometimes micro stands for really – micro. This one fits into the category but still offers many different views and options to compose a photo.
All of the featured photo spots are on the map with exact positions so we won’t bother with navigation, let us only tell you that reaching St. Ursula can be a pleasant short hike from the touristic farm reached by car or a longer one from the valley. The church is visible almost all the time on the shorter hike.
The peaks of Mala Grmada and Grmada in the vicinity of St. Ursula are popular hiking destination in these hills.
The “rear” view is a kind of Slovenian classic and since nothing disturbs the composition it is probably one of the best of the kind as well.
However, the church itself is only a half of the story.
The other half is definitely the view of the surrounding hills over the meadows above the farm.
St. Lawrence is another peak with a church just over the valley.
Personally we can’t wait to hike there again to observe the sunset – location is just right for that. Enjoy!
Check out also the great views of the Črni vrh in the vicinity!
