Sunny day attracts young crowd to gather and sit on the grass of the Star Park (park Zvezda) which is part of a Congress Square (Kongresni trg). They chill, talk, read... on the grounds that was reconstructed in 1821 for the Congress of the Holy Alliance and then again by Jože Plečnik, just before the second world war.
In the park you can drink water from a fountain that was placed on the exact location as it was in 17th century in the courtyard of Capuchin Monastery, that was still standing at the time. Most common meeting point in the park is statue of an anchor, the statue that symbolizes victory over Italians in the second World War. The rumor goes that the anchor is from famous Italian ocean liner Rex, but that is not true.
The most famous buildings here are the former Provincial Mansion, where the Congress took place - today's University of Ljubljana, the Slovenian Philharmonic, the Biedermeier building housing the oldest Slovenian publishing house, neoclassical Kazina - now a dance school - and Ursuline Church. In the square there is a replica of a golden Roman statue found among the ruins of Emona, a Biedermeier bandstand with concerts in the summer and a Roman well.
After writing a blog in Slovenian language for 10 years I have finally come to my sense and started writing one in English as well.
