Ljubljana, the City of Dragons

Triple Bridge Ljubljana is a compact city and easy to navigate. Start with a free walking tour from Prešernov trg Square to learn more about the history of the country and the significance of their landmarks. Then take the funicular to Ljubljana Castle for a panoramic view of the city. End the day at a terrace café by the river and order some of the fine Slovenian wines.  At Triple Bridge (above) with Prešernov trg Square and the Franciscan Church of the Annunciation in the background. Jože Plečnik is the architect of this famous bridge. Dragon’s Bridge One of four large dragons guarding Dragon’s Bridge. Slovenia’s mythological history is entwined with Greek mythology and the story of Jason and the Argonauts. Butcher’s Bridge Butcher’s Bridge is also the love bridge. Notice the thousands of love locks rusting away with age. I hope the same is not true of the love shared by owners of the padlocks. In the background is Jože  Plečnik’s covered market.
