With Plečnik’s bus around Ljubljana

As part of the 150th anniversary of world-famous architect Jože Plečnik’s birth, Plečnik’s city bus is running in Ljubljana. It will run for 150 days on regular line No. 2 and encourage its passengers to discover Plečnik’s landmarks near the stops of this bus line.
