On today’s date, 23st January 1872 one of the greatest Slovenian architects, Jože Plečnik was born. This year the city of Ljubljana will be observing the “Plečnik Year”, as we are commemorating the 145th anniversary of his birth and also 60th anniversary of his death (Jože Plečnik died on 7th January 1957).
During our guided tours of the Slovenian capital, which is also known as Plečnik’s Ljubljana, you’ll be able to see some of his finest works, including the Triple Bridge and Ljubljana’s Central market.
Except from Ljubljana, Plečnik also worked in many other Slovenian cities and also in other European capitals, like Vienna, Prague, Zagreb and Belgrade. Rest of it will be revealed during our guided tours.
