Places of interest
Ljubljana’s appearance today is partially distinguished by the Italian baroque era and partially by Art Nouveau (secession). The latter can be seen in many buildings, which emerged after the earthquake of 1895. The world famous architect Jože Plečnik also provided his hometown Ljubljana with a strong personal imprint in the first half of the 20th century. Later, the cityscape was created by his students but also by creations from young Slovenian architects of the "new wave".
