    Monument to France Presern

    The monument was unveiled in 1905 and is the work of architect Maks Fabiani and sculptor Ivan Zajc. France Prešeren (1800-1849) is the greatest Slovene poet. His poetry is a symbol of longing for love and freedom, which is why one of his poem became the national anthem.
    The monument stands on the ononymous sgare which is the main meeting point for the locals and the visitors aswell. It is non traffic area (excpet for the public transportation & taxi), very vivid and crowded whole day.
