Plans to build the Church of the Risen Christ were drawn up by the architect Janez Fürst. On October 15, 1972, the Auxiliary Bishop of Maribor, dr. Vekoslav Grmič blessed the foundation stone. Construction progressed rapidly and on June 15, 1975, the Bishop of Maribor, dr. Maksimiljan Držečnik solemnly blessed the church in honor of the Risen Christ. The church has an almost square floor design with a massive roof and slopes towards the presbyterian part. A free-standing shingled bell tower in the shape of a mine shaft recalls the mining past of the town. The interior of the church is decorated with works of art by the academic painter Leon Koporc, namely depictions of the risen Christ, the way of the cross and the assumption of Mary.
