Another look at Plecnik's work. Simple and very pretty. Good spot to relax and people watch. Not a must see, however, why not? A nice look on the canal.

By waking around this area you will find really good attractions from antique Yugoslavia, part of magnificent culture full of diversity and mystic dragons and gypsies. Very comfortable environment, museums, and attractive views.
