"Magistrat" Town Hall Tip by mikey_e
Town Hall, Ljubljana: 21 reviews and 41 photos
The Magistrat or Town Hall was originally erected in the 15th century and then rebuilt in 1718 in Gothic style. The interior has a lovely courtyard and used to be where theatrical performances were staged (but they aren't anymore). The building is topped by a golden dragon, which is a symbol of the city of Ljubljana with much more recent history. Allegedly a mayor at the beginning of the 20th century convinced the Viennese authorities to erect Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most) and it is said the dragons wag their tail whenever a virgin crosses the bridge (thanks for the "virgin-dar", Lonely Planet).
