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.
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.
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?
Ljubljana is the City of Dragons, the symbolic protector of the city.
Who is to say if graffiti artists should be imprisoned or adored? I’ll skip the politics and show you the art. You decide.
TPOL isn’t one for museums (see Why I Don’t Visit Museums). I enjoy living history. Ljubljana is the place for that.
