Architectual reminders of Slovenia's recent past under communist rule are plentiful in the city, with Republic Square, for me, offering the most striking examples.

A large, soulless area dominated by a couple of high-rise monstrosities at the southern end, and by perhaps Slovenia's ugliest piece of architecture, the parliament building, at it's northern end, the square has few redeeming features.

When we walked through this square it was raining heavily. Appropriate weather for such an uninspiring place.
