Pyramid meets Roman wall at Emona

Have a joyful week!

Travel with Intent

Parts of Emona, the Roman settlement at what is now Ljubljana, can still be seen.  There is a particularly good stretch of wall on Mirje, a short walk south west of the city centre.

Jože Plečnik, the local architect who left such a huge mark on Ljubljana, redesigned the remains of the Roman walls in the 1930s, cutting two passages through to create a link to Snežniška ulica and Murnikova ulica.  He created a park behind the walls, and gave vent to his penchant for pyramids by building one over a gap in the wall.

When I visited, it was proving popular with some local youngsters, intent on making an unconventional descent.

While one guy jumped, another filmed.

I did ask them “why?”
They said “for fun”.
