Unesco heritage in Ljubljana

Written by

While walking along the cute street of our capital Ljubljana and talking about the architecture and life style many travelers asked us: “Is this listed as UNESCO heritage?”

Until August this year, our answer was “No”. Well, since summer 2021 the situation has changed. We are proud to inform you; finally, the works of our exceptional architect Jože Plečnik are on this list of the most eminent world works.
 
Jože Plečnik, born in Ljubljana in 1872, was not so successful at local school, so as a late teenager helped his father in his workshop. His talent woke up and the destiny brought him to one of the most prominent Architectural Schools in those days: to Vienna and to professor Otto Wagner. His studies he finished with Excellency and he got an excellent prize: as a young man to travel for a year to France and Italy! Later on, he returned to Vienna, to Prague and finally, 100 year ago back to his birthplace Ljubljana.
 
He has been designing our bellowed city for the rest of his life, until 1957 when he died in his house in Trnovo, a must see district in Ljubljana. 
Jože Plečnik was ascetic man, on one side hard working and stubborn, on the other side soft and with a great feeling for a human being. All this you will notice immediately when exploring around the city. A must visit are the riverbanks of Ljubljanica river, Congress Square, Vega Street, Bridge in Trnovo with his house, now a museum, Ljubljana’s castle, cemetery Žale, as well as some local churches that are now UNESCO heritage. 
 
If you would like to hear some more interesting stories from the life of our master, we invite you to spend your Ljubljana’s time with us, tourist guides- local experts.  There is so much to be admired: not only in the city center, also in the area close by. 
In case you need a help with planning your tour, we invite you, to join us on one of our live-streamed tours or off site online pre tour consultation. We would like to help you organize a most memorable time in Ljubljana or even the rest of Slovenia. 
 
DOBRODOŠLI, welcome!

International Art Nouveau Day

Written by

Two most charismatic Art Nouveau architects: Antoni Gaudi and Ődön Lechner died on the same day, June 10. The colorful and nature friendly New Art has dramatically changed the look of Europe at the end of 19th and beginning of 20th century.

The leading figure for us, who were at that time a part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, was Otto Wagner, the professor of architecture in Vienna.

Slovenia is situated in the central south part of Europe, between two mountain ranges: Alps and Dinaric Mountains. Young Alps are spread in France on the west, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Germany in the central part and Slovenia on the east. Julian Alps in Slovenia are so unique that the great part of them is a National park. In South Eastern part of Slovenia dominate Dinaric Mountains, that touch the capital Ljubljana with the Hills around the city.

Ljubljana's main attractions are situated along the city center: Prešeren's Square, Three bridges, Farmer's and Plečnik Market, Butcher's, Cobbler's and Dragon' bridge, Cathedral, City Hall and Congress Square with University Palace. However, the most charming part is the oldest part: the area around Stari trg and Gornji trg.
