From the foundations to the bell

The church was built with the voluntary contributions of the soldiers of the 3rd Mountain Brigade, with their voluntary work during time that was otherwise intended for rest in the hinterland. It is built of stone blocks on a rock base. A wooden building was erected on the masonry foundations. They used larch and spruce wood, which they brought from Bohinj. Black incised notches were made on the edges of all wooden pylons and logs, thus achieving an additional decorative effect.

In 184 days, they built a church with an apse 18 metres long and 7.4 metres wide. The side naves are 6 metres high and the main nave is 7 metres high. Eternit was used for the roofing. 78 steps of stone and cement were built leading to the church.
