  • Really old beautiful church. Excellent historical place to visit for everybody. Highly recommend to visit!!!  more »
  • Drogmining is a small town, but it is worth visiting! And not because there are many historical sights in the city center, but because only here you will see an incredible church with its incredible history and incredible level of preservation. I'm talking about the church of St. Jura. The painting on a tree which is wet in salt brine and, therefore, has withstood the test of time from the 13th century till today. ....-These are impressions that cannot be expressed in words))) and also old Sollevarni!! Take a tour of the local staff, who are responsible for the preservation of unique traditions! I wish them to find patrons who can help the country not to lose its history!!

  • Amazing, a extremely beautiful church both inside and out. It took me a while to work out how to get in but someone came with a key and unlocked the church. They told me about the history of the church and showed me around the various parts. Not touristy at all a really special experience.
  • One of the best wooden churches
