Ljubljana and me

Glimpses,photos & experiences of a foreigner living in Slovenia, Ljubljana

The Pink Bank in Ljubljana

The earthquake  of 1895, almost destroyed the entire city, opening the door for the great  architects to re-invent Ljubljana.One of them was Ivan Vurnik, that along with  Jože Plečnik,  is considered one of the initiators of the Slovene modern architecture.

Miklošičeva ulica ,that connects the central square- Prešernov trg to Ljubljana railway station,has a number of beautiful buildings,palaces but most famous and obvious is the pink bank – The Cooperative Business Bank building,Zadružna Gospodarska Banka .P1070394aaa Designed by Ivan Vurnik ,in 1921 and pained by his wife- Helena , the entire building smiles at you through traditional Slovenian motifsP1070397aaa.

    I took a picture of this building when I was in Ljubljana, but I don’t think I realised it was a bank. It’s nice to learn more about it!
