Another aerial view for today, this time of Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana.
Well, i can 'brag' that i have at least one card from each capital of the former Yugoslav republics, but unfortunately, i cant say the same about visiting those places, which is a pity.
I know, several years ago, when i went on my European trip, we had to pass through Slovenia...im still haunted by the image of beautiful small colourful houses in lovely green surroundings...I might have been to Slovenia when i was little (very little) but i cant recall anything of that, so if you cant remember, it doesnt count :)
But i would love to go there and visit it....i just cant believe i need a visa for there as well :/
Probably you dont know this, but its an interesting fact. When the catastrophic earthquake happened in Skopje, in 1963, the town was simply destroyed and hundreds of people were left homeless and had to flea somewhere else, before the city was rebuilt. As it usually happens, aid arrived from all over the globe and certain countries helped in rebuilding certain areas and due to that, they named the streets in that area regarding something significant for that country. Well, the area where i live was helped by Slovenia (even though it wasnt an independent country back then, still it was a republic of its own) so the streets here are related to Slovenia in one way or another...mine as well :)
Well, now that i thought of it...there is an area here, where the streets are named by some of the European capitals....im not sure who helped there....i think i should ask around...never thought of it before but now i got curious.
Anyway, sorry i didnt talk of the card...but sometimes i just go astray :)
There are some cards from Lubljana in the older posts (though those ones havent been updated yet, hopefully soon i will) so you can take a read a bit about Ljubljana there...soon.
Btw, im interested how foreigners would pronounce the name of Ljubljana...it can get tricky, i know (even trickier if you have to read it in the cyrillic alphabet: Љубљана :)))))
