Opis

Komenda lies parallel to the main Kranj – Mengeš road. It is an old village, as its original church of St. Peter´s was first mentioned in 1147. The Baroque church, which was built in 1727, was restored and extended after the earthquake in 1895. Its altar and pulpit are particularly striking. The altar was designed by the painter Franc Jelovšek, while the statues on the pulpit were made by the sculptor J. Lohar in 1760. The Gothic stone shrine by the lower edge of the cemetery, dating back to 1510, is decorated with the emblem of the Maltese order, which settled in Komenda at the end of the 13th century. The Order of Malta encouraged horse-breeding in Komenda and its vicinity. Horse races have been organised since the times of Valvazor (1641 – 1693), and this tradition is kept alive with help of the local horse club and the hippodrome. Komenda is known for its long tradition of horsebreeding, beekeeping and pottery.
