What is happening to Prešeren statue on the Ljubljana square?
Until May 24, tourists who are visiting Slovenia’s capital will not be able to take photos with Ljubljana’s most famous statue of the poet France Prešeren. What’s the REASON?
As it can be seen from the sign on the construction site, the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage will prepare a conservation plan for the monument, the investor of which is the City of Ljubljana.
Inspection and protection
The City of Ljubljana workers are inspecting the condition of the bronze patina on the monument. They will prepare a conservation plan for the restoration of the city’s bronze monuments.
Prior to that, the same investigations were carried out on the monument to Valentin Vodnik at the Ljubljana Central Market and the Valvasor monument in front of the National Museum of Slovenia.
