Roman walls in Ljubljana

Outside the roman wall of Ljubljana

The ancient Roman name of Ljubljana was Emona. Today one can still see some Roman elements in the city. E.g. this redesign of a part of the Roman town walls created by architect Jože Plečnik. The reconstruction of the walls is not really authentic but works as remarkable monument to the former presence of the Romans.

Roman street in Cologne

Roman street in Cologne, Germany

Near the Roman Museum in Cologne one can see this reconstruction of an ancient street. In Cologne it is generally known as ‘Hafenstrasse’ though it isn’t really leading to a port. It isn’t an exact reconstruction of the former street either but the basalt stones are from Roman times at least.
