I think photo of Slovenia's tallest church has already been posted, but here's an interesting piece of information about this (unattractive) shrine: it was built by Jesuits in 1913, but the communist regime took the church from the Jesuits in 1949 and soon after that Slovenia's biggest film studio moved into the desacralized church. It was returned to the Jesuits only in 1996, so majority of Slovenian films, made between 1949 and 1996, were actually filmed inside a church!

Damn you people on here suffer from severe cognitive dissonance!

How is this building any more "kitsch" than Saint Peters Basilica or any of the ridiculously ornate (in pink and other ridiculous colors) German and Austrian Baroque churches? The only reason you call it "kitsch" is because it was made yesterday. If this had been built a few hundred years ago it would be called beautiful neoclassical etc etc.

The cognitive dissonance here is astounding. If somebody copies old architecture it is bad because it is a "copy", and if then somebody uses old architecture as an inspiration but than adds new touches than it is "kitch".

Sorry, but the church in Lichen Stary is ugly as hell (no pun intended)! There are just too many styles and colors going on there! But if religious people and pilgrims find spiritual comfort there, then that's all that matters!
But from my point of view (I study architecture) it's still a tasteless little thing...well, not that little!

Stary Lichen just fails to apply to the rules of classic beauty in architecture.
It's out of proportions, nothing's fitting together, it's just like a nouveau riche temple.
Pretty disgusting indeed and a huge waste of money. As much as I'm a fan of postmodern and today's neoclassical architecture, this one is a big fail.

Poland should better reconstruct some of its gone buildings instead. Just thinking about all the devastated stuff in the eastern part of the country, in Silesia, Pommerania etc...

Indeed it's like a parody of historical styles with bad proportions and rather chaotic mix of styles anyway it's not a representative example of modern Polish church architecture... not that it's good in general but Licheń is quite drastic.
