The misterious world of the most notable Slovenian Architect with a private guide
Jože (Joseph) Plečnik was born in Ljubljana. Not so well understood, he left high school in Ljubljana, worked at his father's workshop, however with a help of his brother started a brilliant study career and became one of the most famous architects of his period. On our tour, we are going to admire some of his most notable works like Market, Three Bridges, National& University Library or Cobbler's Bridge. Next to that will go even off the beaten path to uncover some hidden treasures like local churches, his house or even local cemetery. Thanks to his talent, Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia became one of the most charming cities in the world!

Fabulous tour! As an amateur student of architecture, it was a treat for me to spend time looking at buildings, spaces, details, materials, furnishings, city planning and the ideas, concepts and architectural vocabulary that sprang from the amazing mind of Joze Plecnik. Mateja brought all of this alive with her interest and enthusiasm. She is well schooled in all things Plecnik & Ljubljana. She is a delightful person to spend time with, well educated and well traveled. Don't miss this tour or any of hers!
