Ljubljana's architectural gems showcased on French stamps


Paris - The French post has issued a series of four stamps depicting Ljubljana's architectural landmarks. The stamps show the Triple Bridge, St. Nicholas Cathedral, Ljubljana Castle and Tivoli Park.

The French post has thus underlined the charm of the Slovenian capital, the Slovenian Embassy in France said on Twitter, adding that Ljubljana landmarks designed by architect Jože Plečnik (1872-1957), including some of those showcased on the stamps, are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

They have been included on the list since last summer. Seven works by Plečnik have received this honour: the Ljubljanica embankments with a number of bridges, Trnovo Bridge, Vega Street with the National and University Library and Congress Square with Zvezda Park, Roman Wall, Žale Cemetery, and the churches of St. Michael in the village of Črna Vas and St. Francis of Assisi in the Šiška borough.

The issuance of the stamps comes after Ljubljana was declared European Best Destination 2022 in mid-February.
