Ljubljana and me

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

Stari trg 3

The main squares of Ljubljana ( Town ,Old and New Square) were separated, in middle and modern ages till the end of 18th century, by walls. The wall between Town Square- Mestni trg and Old Square – Stari trg ran from the Castle against Ljubljanica through the Old Square 3 – Stari trg 3 , from which ,in our times, you can find Pod Velbom ,P1070885aaa,with its façade from the first half of the 18 th century.

The house has its place in history of Ljubljana. In 1673 , a merchant ,Graffhaiden ,bought this place with the condition to preserve the city wall. So the wall became part of the house, you can still see the lines of the Old Square and the Town square on the house , that has also a cute interior court,that Tasha enjoyed sniffing it around:)P1070880aaaP1070879aaa P1070878aaaP1070874aaa

Also , in this house, in 1872 was born Matija Jama, Slovenian impressionist painter, his work can be seen at the National gallery in Ljubljana.
