Also in the old town's center, you can see the many architectural contributions of Slovenian architect Joze Plecnik, including the iconic Triple Bridge, the river's embankments, and a number of exquisite parks and squares. In the mid-20th century, Plecnik transformed the capital into the modern city it is today.
