At the turn of the century, many European cities embraced the new art movement called Art Nouveau or secession, that left its mark on art, architecture and design. Ljubljana was no exception, therefore typical secession style can be seen on numerous buildings, all inspired by scenes from nature, religion, folklore and geometry.
You've probably already heard about Ljubljana's favourite bearded architect Jože Plečnik. I'm sure you took a selfie at the famous Triple Bridge or you took a walk around Žale cemetery. But did you know you can actually visit his house? Now turned into a museum, it offers glimpses of Plečnik's super busy life and his work.
Despite living in Ljubljana for nearly twenty years, I only recently found out we have a Railway Museum. Maybe that’s because it’s located away from the city centre and housed in very unassuming buildings. It doesn’t matter, because once we found out, we were ready to explore it. Climb aboard with us and get ready to learn about the railways and trains in Slovenia and beyond.
