Saturdays in Ljubljana are always packed with people. This Saturday was no different but it had an additional twist. It was Earth Day. Even though there are many events to celebrate it every year, one stands out. The city divers yearly sweep of the Ljubljanica river. It’s important to stress one thing: they do this every year, so the pile of garbage on the photos is at most one year old. Hopefully every passerby thought about that.

There was another nice gesture by the city that caught our eye. Ljubljana tourism office decided to give away potted herbs. We walked away with a pretty sage plant. Hopefully you found something for yourself as well if you happened to walk by.

All in all it was a great spring Saturday. We can’t wait for the next one. What about you?

Colonia Aemona lulia tribu Claudia was established in 14 AD in the southwest of the present Ljubljana. It was home to about five, six thousand inhabitants who felt safe behind thick city walls. Emona the ancient name for this roman town, had paved streets, stone built houses with sewage and heating systems in place. Town was supplied with water trough many aqueducts.
