  Ljubljana Dragon Route
Ljubljana-Presern square

Ljubljana, especially its old city centre, is renowned for its unique architectural appearance, which is due to the picturesque combination of the legacy of the Roman era, Baroque and Art Nouveau masterpieces, and a unique and original character given to the city by the famous European architect Joze Plecnik, a native of Ljubljana, in the first half of the 20th century.

... according to legend ...
After steeling the Golden Fleece from king Aeetes, the Greek hero Jason fled with his ship Argo and sailed vast seas. Instead of heading for the south, the Argonauts reached the spring of the Ljubljanica River, where Jason fought a great monster and, as it usually happens in legends, beat it. The monster - a dragon - is featured in the town's coat of arms and is the main symbol of Ljubljana. Thus Jason, the great winner, became the first inhabitant of Ljubljana.
