Ljubljana

Robba Fountain

  Mestni Trg     19 Nov 2021
Also known as The Fountain of Three Carniolan Rivers and one of the most famous landmarks in the city, this lovely 1751 fountain is named after its creator, the Italian Baroque sculptor Francesco Robba (1698-1757). The last of Robba’s Ljubljana creations, the eight years it took him to complete essentially bankrupted the man, and he finally left the city for Zagreb. Based loosely on the grand fountains of Rome, the artist’s masterpiece features three river gods, supposedly representing the Krka, Ljubljanica and Sava rivers. Note the monument standing in Mestni Trg is a replica, the original having been moved inside the lobby of the National Gallery of Slovenia in order to protect it from the elements.
