NKMV Team: Since the final location has changed a lot and it is much more open now, the box is more visible. We tried to place it again in the same spot, but it was gone after a week. With two kids we do not have the energy and time to create and search a new final location. For the joy of the people who are requesting the archival we have decided that it's time to do it.

Geocache Description:

This multicache will guide you around the town on a sight-seeing tour. You will see the Roman ruins, some places connected to the biggest Slovenian poet France Prešeren and finish the tour with a micro cache. The cache is located in the center of Ljubljana and we tried to plan the route in a suitable way also for people on a wheelchair. If we didn't make it please write us about the changes. The tour will take about 2 hours and some humour when solving it.

We wish to thank everyone who helped us make this cache better and let us correct the errors.

Write down all the data of the solutions, you will need them at a later stage.
Vse podatke si zapišite, rabili vam bodo kasneje.

Naš izlet se začne na Čevljarskem mostu. Most je dobil ime po čevljarjih katerim so na njem postavili kolibe. V letu 1867 so tedanji most zamenjali z železnim, kasneje pa ga prenovili po Plečnikovih načrtih. Večkrat so na njem uprizorjene predstave in razne prireditve, ob nedeljah pa so na njem in v njegovi bližini stojnice.

Our tour starts on the Čevljarski most. The bridge got it's name after the shoemakers (čevljarji) that had their shops on it. In 1867 the bridge was substituted wit an iron one and later renewed after the blueprints of the architect Jože Plečnik. On the bridge there are sometimes performances and shows, while on Sundays an antiquity and book market is held.

Prešernov trg je bil že v srednjem veku pomemben prostor za trgovanje. Današnjo podobo s pesnikovim kipom in Tromostovjem pa je dobil šele leta 1931, ko je Plečnik dodal dva poševna kraka prejšnjemu kamnitemu mostu iz leta 1842. Na danih koordinatah je doprsni kip Prešernove ljubezni – Primicove Julije.

Zmajski most so ob odprtju imenovali „Jubilejni“, zato tudi na njem stojita letnici vladanja cesarja Franca Jožefa. „Zmajski“ pa je postal zaradi zmajev, ki ga krasijo. Ta mitološka zver je tudi simbol Ljubljane in stoji zato v njenem mestnem grbu.

The Zmajski most was named “Jubiljeni” when it was opened, on it are the years when emperor Franz Joseph ruled. It was later named “Zmajski” after the dragons that ornate it. The Dragon (Zmaj) is also the symbol of Ljubljana and so it is also in the town crest.

Trnovo, kraj nesrečnega imena!
Tam meni je gorje bilo rojeno
od dveh očesov čistega plamena.

V tem kraju je France Prešeren prvič zagledal Julijo leta 1833. Cerkev sv. Janeza Krstnika z dvema zvonikoma je bila prenovljena leta 1999, za njo stoji hiša v kateri je živel arh. Jože Plečnik. Pri cerkvi so postavili spominsko obeležje slovenskim impresionistom. Groharjev „Sejalec“ je tudi upodobljen na slovenskem kovancu za 0.05€ Trnovo je bilo čolnarsko predmestje z velikim pristanom ob bregu Ljubljanice.

France Prešeren first met Julija here in 1833. The church of St. John the Baptist has two bell towers and was renewed in 1999. Behind it there is a house in which the architect Jože Plecnik lived. By the church there is a monument to the Slovenian impressionists. The “Sejalec” from Grohar is also on the Slovenian 0.05€ coin. Trnovo was a boatmen suburb with a big port on the Ljubljanica river bank.

Tukaj so stala severna vrata rimske naselbine. Kip Emonca so našli leta 1836 ob grajenju bližnje Kazine v klasicističnem slogu. Original je v Narodnem muzeju. Trg je dobil ime po kongresu svete alianse med Avstrijo, Prusijo in Rusijo leta 1821. Na njem je vidna dediščina različnih zgodovinskih obdobij npr. južna stran, ki se naslanja na srednjeveško obzidje in del rimskega obzidja, barok je prisoten z Uršulinsko cerkvijo. V samem parku je postavljen tudi spomenik – Ladijsko sidro v spomin na delno vrnitev Slovenskega primorja matici.

Here stand the north gate of the Roman settlement. The statue of the Emonian was discovered in 1836 when the nearby Kazina was built. The original is in the Narodni muzej. The square is named after the congress of the holy alliance between Austria, Prussia and Russia held in 1821. On the square the heritage of different historic periods can be found. The south side is based on the medieval wall and partly on the Roman wall. The baroque is present with the Uršulinska cerkev – Ursuline church.
