St Nicholas Parish Church

The first parish established on the Ankaran Peninsula in 1965 was the parish of St Brigid of Kildare. Later, the parish of Ankaran was founded, which for a long time remained without a church. The foundation stone of the new church was laid in March 1983, and in December 1984 the church was dedicated to St Nicholas. Today, the church exhibits the works of the renowned artist Mira Ličen, including a stained-glass window, the stations of the cross, a painting of the Risen Christ, a painting of St Nicholas and a statue of the Virgin Mary. The platform in front of the church offers stunning views of the Bay of Koper.
