Hello 😊,me 🦋in the center of Ljubljana, in front of The National and University Library (Slovene: Narodna in univerzitetna knjižnica, NUK) or "House of Knowledge”, designed in the years 1930–31 and constructed between 1936–41 is one of the most important national educational and cultural institutions of Slovenia.It is also considered one of the greatest achievements of the man who built Ljubljana. ❄️I am referring to the Slovene architect Jože Plečnik who significantly contributed to the appearance of three Central European cities: Vienna, Prague, and Ljubljana. You cannot possibly be in Ljubljana without coming face to face with Plečnik’s work. There aren’t many cities in the world that have the architectural feeling that Ljubljana does, and fewer still that had the personal seal of a single artist. From 1920 until his death, Jože Plečnik (1872-1957) reimagined Ljubljana his birthplace and created the sweet, delightful aesthetic joy that we know and love today. Plečnik love for his hometown is evident to all who stroll around the sleepy streets of the Slovene capital. ❄️Over three and half decades, he transformed the former provincial town into the capital of the Slovenian nation. In designing Ljubljana, Plečnik used modern approaches while modeling the city on ancient Athens. If you wondered, why locals like to call the city Plečnik’s Ljubljana, the answer would be clear – you can admire his work on each corner of the city. His best known architectural achievement includes the iconic Triple Bridge, Cobblers’ Bridge, National and University Library building, the Central Market, the Križanke Summer Theatre, the Ljubljanica river embankments and bridges, the funeral home at the Žale cemetery, Church of St. Michael on the Ljubljana Marshes and many more. His rise began in Vienna, where he created eight works between 1901 and 1914,then Prague 1911 and 1920 Plečnik was entrusted as Prague Castle Architect and others projects.❄️Jože Plečnik’s legacy is arguably untouchable when it comes to Slovenians. His work in Prague and Vienna is still fawned over today, and his influence as one of the founders of modern European architecture isn’t up for debate.
