Where new memories are created

So beautiful, so mystical, Škofja Loka is home to the Škofja Loka Passion Play, the oldest Slovene drama and the largest outdoor theatre production.

During the time of the Passion Play, visitors to the town can become a part of the staging of the play, which is based on a text from 1721. Experience a live masterpiece, which is included on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The setting for the performance is the streets of the genuine medieval town where, throughout the year, you can allow your feelings to instantly transform you into a Lord, destined for Loka Castle, or for one of the other nearby castles, or become the legendary black negro from the town's coat-of-arms, a monk returning to his paperwork behind the walls of the Capuchin Monastery, a traveller, who on the Capuchin Bridge, also known as the Stone Bridge, looks around at the tollhouse, or a creator who brings materials from the green countryside for craft masterpieces or ingredients for culinary delights.


Note: on the path of the Škofja Loka Passion Play answers to all your questions can be found! Inspiration can be found at every step taken through the town at the confluence of two rivers. Here, and in the green surroundings, numerous artists, writers, and other masters, have found inspiration. Škofja Loka is the birthplace of Slovene Impressionism and a place of creative experiences.
