Jože Plečnik (1872-1957) is one of the great architects of the twentieth century who left his mark on three European cities, Vienna, Prague and Ljubljana. Plečnik’s love for his country led him to devote his life to creating a fine capital city. From 1921 to 1957 he transformed Ljubljana, which has come to be called “Plečnik’s Ljubljana.” Modesty and deep faith were his life principles and were strongly reflected in his professional life. Among his most important works are: the arrangement of the banks of the Ljubljanica river with the Marketplace, Cobbler’s Bridge, Three Bridges, the National and University library, the Žale cemetery and many others.
