Philip Mansion is a building in central Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It is located along the Ljubljanica River, at the corner of Cankar Embankment (Cankarjevo nabrežje) and Stritar Street (Stritar Street), next to the Triple Bridge. On the other side of Stritar Street stands the Kresija Palace. The two buildings mark the entry into the town's medieval part under Ljubljana Castle. The two buildings were designed after the 1895 Ljubljana earthquake by the Graz architect Leopold Theyer and completed in 1898. It was built by the tradesman Filip Schreyer. The Philip Mansion is distinguished by a Renaissance Revival style. It is said that the small spires on its façades were built at the explicit demand of Mayor Hribar, who was known to be an admirer of Czech culture and wanted Ljubljana to resemble Prague, the "city of a hundred spires". However, the more probable explanation is that the spires were meant to serve as a reminder of the town gates in the old defensive wall that stood in their place.

The Franciscan Church of the Annunciation (Slovene: Frančiškanska cerkev Marijinega oznanjenja or commonly Frančiškanska cerkev) is a Franciscan church located on Prešeren Square in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It is the parish church of Ljubljana - Annunciation Parish. Its red colour is symbolic of the Franciscan monastic order. Since 2008, the church has been protected as a cultural monument of national significance of Slovenia. Built between 1646 and 1660 (the bell towers following later), it replaced an older church on the same site. The early-Baroque layout takes the form of a basilica with one nave and two rows of side-chapels. The Baroque main altar was executed by the sculptor Francesco Robba. Much of the original frescoes were ruined by the cracks in the ceiling caused by the Ljubljana earthquake in 1895. The new frescoes were painted in 1936 by the Slovene impressionist painter Matej Sternen. Next to the church, squeezed next to Prešeren Square between Čop Street, Nazor Street and Miklošič Street, there is a Franciscan Monastery dating from the 13th century. The monastery is notable for its library, containing more than 70,000 books, including many incunabulae and medieval manuscripts. Founded in 1233, the monastery was initially located at Vodnik Square, moving to the present location during the Josephine reforms of the late 18th century.

The Grand Hotel Union is a four-star hotel near the centre of the city of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Built about a block from the city's central Prešeren Square between 1903 and 1905, it is notable for having been Ljubljana's first modern hotel, as well as—for a few years after its construction—the city's largest building. The hotel was part of a programme of urban reconstruction during the administration of Mayor Ivan Hribar, initiated in the aftermath of the major 1895 earthquake that destroyed much of Ljubljana's medieval structures. Designed by the architect Josip Vancaš, it is a fine example of the Vienna Secession style. Its façade is almost 100 metres long, and its complex iron roof structure was considered a technical achievement at the time. Since its completion in 1905, the hotel has been redecorated twice, but retains its original style. The ground floor of the building contains the Café Union (Unionska kavarna).

Ljubljana tram system

Located at 46.05, 14.51 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 0 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The tram system in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, was originally built in 1901 and was operated until 1958. Works have started in 1900 and the tram was put in use after postponements and without a special ceremony on 6 September 1901. The tram's end came on 20 December 1958, when it was replaced in a ceremony by 12 buses. In the post-World War II era, many Yugoslav towns and cities with tram systems took out their systems, as they took up a lot of space in an era when it was needed for an increasing number of automobiles. In its final form, established in 1940, the system reached length of 18.5 kilometres . Soon after the last day of operation the tracks were dismantled and the cars were transferred to Osijek and Subotica. Reintroduction of an actual tram system to Ljubljana has been proposed repeatedly in the 2000s.

More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Cobblers' Bridge or the Shoemakers' Bridge (Slovene: Čevljarski most or Šuštarski most) is a bridge crossing the river Ljubljanica in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It is one of the oldest bridges crossing the river in Ljubljana, and dates back to at least the 13th century. In the Middle Ages it was known as the Upper Bridge (Zgornji most). It started as a wooden bridge with a butchers shop on it, but the stench from the meat was so strong that the Emperor at the time paid to have them relocated. The occupiers of their booths following this were shoemakers, and so the bridge has its present name. The bridge has been reconstructed on numerous occasions throughout its long history due to floods or fires and in 1867 an iron bridge was built. However this was later relocated in 1931 and replaced with the current stone bridge designed by the architect Jože Plečnik. In 2010, a monument to Ivan Hribar, mayor of Ljubljana between 1895 and 1907, was unveiled next to the bridge.

The Ljubljana Town Hall (Slovene: Ljubljanska mestna hiša, also known as Ljubljanski rotovž or simply Rotovž or Magistrat) is the town hall in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is the seat of the City Municipality of Ljubljana. It is located at Town Square in the city centre close to Ljubljana Cathedral. The original building was built in a Gothic style in 1484, probably upon the plans by the Carniolan architect Peter Bezlaj. Between 1717 and 1719, the building underwent a Baroque renovation with a Venetian inspiration by the architect Gregor Maček, who probably copied from the plans of the Italian architect Carlo Martinuzzi. In the mid-1920s, a monument to the Serbian and first Yugoslav king Peter I was erected in the entrance of the Town Hall. The monument, designed by the architect Jože Plečnik, was removed and destroyed by the Fascist Italian occupation authorities of the Province of Ljubljana in April 1941. Outside the town hall stands a replica of the Baroque Robba's fountain, work of Francesco Robba. The original work, finished in 1751, is kept in the National Gallery.
