“On lìtter in quatter”(1 liter for 4 persons) — The commemorative monument of Leonardo da Vinci 🇮🇹❤️🌿.
.
The Milanesi named it so, because it resembles a bottle of wine with 4 glasses surrounding it. The white carrara marble statue of Leonardo rests on top of granite octagon pedestal, around which are the 4 statues of his pupils. In between the lifesize figures of his students are 4 bas-reliefs depicting his contributions to the city: as a painter of fresco “the last supper”, as a sculptor of equestrian statue of Francesco Sforza ( unfinished due to french invasion), as architect and military engineer for the fortifications of Imola Castle, and as city planner and hydraulic expert for his work in the canal systems of the city.

The historical Congress Square 🇸🇮🌿.
After the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte in Waterloo and the fall of French empire, the Quintuple Alliance (Russia, Austria, Prussia, UK and France under the restored Bourbons), held conferences as part of the Concert of Europe with the aim of disposing of the defeated emperor’s conquests, and to settle disputes. One of these conferences is the Congress of Laibach (german name of Ljubljana then under the austrian rule)in 1821.The square was built for the summit’s purpose and named after it. After WWII, the square was renamed Revolution Square and then Liberation Square and after Slovenia’s secession from Yugoslavia, regained its former name.

The Cobblers Bridge 🔨🗜👞👠
.
One of the oldest bridges of the city, during the Middle Ages it was a wooden bridge with shops of traders and craftsmen on it. A while back it was occupied by shoemakers’ shops, and from then on the name remained. Destroyed and reconstructed various times, the present stone foot bridge was designed by Jože Plečnik, the architect behind the transformation of modern Ljubljana. 🇸🇮
