DescriptionJože Plečnik (1872 - 1957), a native and lifelong resident of Ljubljana, is considered one of the world's most important pioneers of modern architecture. His creative opus had a significant impact on the appearance of three Central European cities: Vienna, Prague and especially his beloved Ljubljana. The imprint that Plečnik left on Ljubljana is so distinctive and ineradicable that Plečnik’s Ljubljana as a unique urban specialty is one of the most original and significant total works of art of the 20th century to be found anywhere in the world. Marvel at some of his best works during a pleasant walk from the starting point, the Tourist Information Centre at the Triple Bridge, through Šance at the Ljubljana Castle hill to Plečnik House on the Karunova ulica street in the Trnovo district. Visit the grand reading room in the National and University Library, which is probably Plečnik’s most significant work in Slovenia. Treat yourself to Plečnik’s tea and Plečnik’s honey cookie in the NUK café. End your tour in the renovated Plečnik House, where the architect lived and created his art. This is the place where the idea of Plečnik's Ljubljana came to life. The house displays the architect's home with all original interior and exterior equipment and a permanent museum exhibition.
