The Church of Sv. Urh in Maršiči originated in the Middle Ages and was renovated in the Baroque period. It is decorated with 16th-century frescoes by the so-called "Croatian painters" painted in a colourful and anecdotal folk style. The very unusual allegory, a fresco of a pilgrim fox carrying a stolen goose in a bag, is surrounded by the insignia of church dignitaries, is an intriguing interweaving of Reformation ideals and folk humour.

The ancient medieval core of Ribnica developed beside the castle between the Bistrica stream and today's main street, Škrabčev trg ("Skrabec Square"). Standing on the main square are the beautifully renovated and remarkable Miklova, Štekličkova, and Oničeva houses and the Parish Church of Sv. Štefan with bell towers designed by the architect Jože Plečnik. The castle complex today houses the Museum of Woodenware and Pottery. The castle walls enclose a park dedicated to eminent historical figures of the Ribnica Valley.
