Doorways of Ljubljana

I often find myself drawn to architectural details in my travels. I’m not sure why; maybe it’s just that they often provide the most visual interest. In Ljubljana, Slovenia this past autumn, doors and doorways caught my attention. Here are some of my favorites. I apologize for the uneven sizes and layout; wordpress changed its media upload process and I’m still trying to figure it out. After a couple of hours, this is the best I can do for now.

The figures surrounding this main entry to the Parliament building are original to the building’s construction in 1959. It’s refreshing to see that this sort of decoration of a public building can remain in place without people freaking out thinking it will corrupt their children or frighten the horses!
