Pic of the Day: Sept 1

Sunset in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
.
This is from the central plaza in Ljubljana.  In the shade in the foreground the after-work crowd sits alone the river drinking and eating.  The older buildings stand above them and high up is the Castle.
.
Like Prague, Ljubljana wasn't the scene of fighting in World War II (or World War I) as the Russian Army concentrated in the north across Poland and the Americans came up through Italy to the West.  So most of the old city is still standing.  After the break-up of Yugoslavia, Slovenia was the recipient of aid and expertise from their Austrian neighbors and kinsmen.
