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.


Dragon bridge in Ljubljana

Sculpture at the dragon bridge in Ljubljana, Slovenia

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).


Building at Ljubljana Railway Station

Apartment tower at Ljubljana Railway Station

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?
