Ljubljanica Tourism Board

Make a tour of the modern architectural masterworks of prodigious local talent Jo_e Plecnik, who took the Secessionists Art Nouveau style he learned in Vienna back home (via Prague) to remake his native city along his own, idiosyncratic lines. Like Gaudí in Barcelona, Plecnik designed his buildings right down to the smallest fittings, like the Pegasus door handles on the entrance to the National and University Library, which has a magnificent stage set of a staircase inside. Plecnik designed a bit of everything around town, from the central market (below) to the two flanking spans of Ljubljana's iconic Triple Bridge, to the café-lined embankments of the Ljubljanica River (Plecnik planted alternating rounded willows and pointy poplars to emulate the domes and spires of Prague). Learn more and get a full list of Plecnik sights at the city's official tourism site.
