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.
This dragon was one of four I saw at the Dragon Bridge (Zmajski most) in Ljubljana. The bridge finished at the beginning of the 20th century shows some elements of the Viennese Secession. The dragons saw their production in Vienna (Factory A. M. Beschorner).
The ticket hall of Ljubljana railway station is lighted by stained glass windows like this one. It reminds of a chapel, doesn’t it?
Interesting building next to the railway station of Ljubljana. The higher you live the less neighbours you have. Would you love to live in such a building next to a train station?
During a walk on the grounds of the Museum of Slovenian Railways I came across a lot of decommissioned locomotives and carriages. A place with fascinating objects at every turn.
On a sunny day in autumn, I walked along the reconstructed Roman city wall of Ljubljana. During the Roman period, the name of this place was Colonia Iulia Aemona or just Emona.
