Ljubljana, Slovenia: My Kind of Town for Art

2

Ljubljana Art is part of the #NoCollusion, No Albania for TPOL where I break my 100 country count mark. See the World Map for where I’ve been.


I had no plan when I landed in Slovenia, nor did I know what to expect. New the town, I do what I always do: walk around and see what I run into (see Old Town Warsaw in Pictures). In Ljubljana, I was captivated by the buildings, bridges, dragons, and of course, the graffiti.

Let’s take a look.

City Centre

Old town is the best. Like the old town in Stockholm, Ljubljana is a great place to get lost in the sites. No guide is needed.

Preseren

Spiritually, I ask myself, “What would this historic icon think of the transformation of his country?”

Perhaps he would wonder why everyone is on his/her phone instead of paying homage to his accomplishments.

Did you know the statue is of France Prešeren, the greatest Slovene classical poet?

Dragon Bridge 

Ljubljana is the City of Dragons, the symbolic protector of the city. 

Graffiti

Who is to say if graffiti artists should be imprisoned or adored? I’ll skip the politics and show you the art. You decide.

Chicken Fell Pain! Vandalism or art?
In another town, I’m not walking through this alley.

The best one

Overall

TPOL isn’t one for museums (see Why I Don’t Visit Museums). I enjoy living history. Ljubljana is the place for that.
