PPAC: Public art in Ljubljana

As I told Marsha, probably two thirds of all photos that I take contain some degree of public art. I find myself saving many for this challenge designed and run by Marsha and Cee who is the host today.

All today’s photos were taken in the last three weeks, now that I’m in my Slovenia of origin to be with my family and for the Olympic euphory that only a country of two million, hungry for recognition, can generate.

Ljubljana is its capital and this summer it’s emptier than usually. Most of these were taken in the centre on the day of my first vaccination.

There are two galleries today, architecture art in the first, and street art in the second.


Here is another, a mini street art gallery featuring Invader’s invasion of Ljubljana, the return of the Splash and a sad lion. You will need to click on a photo to open the gallery and see the captions. WordPress can’t do everything.

  1. I so enjoy these rich colors and detailed art (the school!) that line your streets. I had to laugh at the bank support photo! Traveling with you around town is such fun. Love the commentary as well. 🙂

  2. Manja, you have outdone yourself with all your wonderful photographs of public art. I thought of Humpty Dumpty when I saw the egg, and realized that the fall might not have been the end of the line for him. I like the snazzy lines in the crosswalk. It’s funny what grabs you, isn’t it? I think the All One rock is just that – a plea for us all to be “all one,” rather than separate groups “all alone” that hate each other. Very thought-provoking post, Manja. Thanks for joining in. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Marsha! 🙂 I’m glad you got something from this post. It can be funny what grabs you, yes, and I never fight this feeling. It’s always a reason. I love your interpretation of the Allone sign. This must be it. All well to you, you need it!
