a pearl of Slovenian cultural heritage of 20th century
Plečnik House with a permanent 'Plečnik' exhibition
24. 9. 2015–31. 12. 2030

“A tower, a mule, me and the garden” – that is how Jože Plečnik imagined his life when he didn’t know yet that after Vienna ...


On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Jože Plečnik, Plečnik's House prepared a creative culinary competition Flavours from the Plečnik's Garden. We invite young people between the ages of 16 and 25 to create an innovative recipe for a dessert, inspired by local ingredients found in the garden of the Plečnik House.

Nulla dies sine linea. Professor Plečnik and his school in Ljubljana
21. 10. 2022–26. 2. 2023

The third of four exhibitions presented in Plečnik House during the Plečnik Year 2022 offers an insight into the work, methods and curricula of Plečnik's School in Ljubljana. Along with Plečnik's creations an almost equally important ingredient of his legacy is also his pedagogical work, which is still reverberating today in the works of his students.

Prostor v gibanju, s Plečnikom Misliti Plečnika v kontekstu skupnosti
3. 12. 2022–24. 12. 2022

Kako Plečnikovo delo videti, gledati, razumeti, o njem likovno razmišljati in ga spoznati v kontekstu skupnosti, so v Plečnikovem letu 2022 raziskovali študenti Naravoslovnotehniške fakultete v Ljubljani. Ustvarili so izvirne video zapise, ki si jih v decembru lahko ogledamo na video-razstavi 'Prostor v gibanju, s Plečnikom' v Plečnikovi hiši.

October marks a 100 years since Plečnik settled in his house in Trnovo

After decades of living abroad, Jože Plečnik moved back to his home city of Ljubljana in autumn of 1921. The reason was his new position as professor at the newly established Department of Architecture at the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Ljubljana. There he imbued his students with knowledge until the last months of his life.

Plečnik House

Walking through Ljubljana it is impossible to ignore the abundance of arrangements and architectural creations made by the Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik. Born in Ljubljana, Plečnik learned his craft in Vienna and acquired a creative broadness of mind in Prague. He deftly implemented his skills as he returned to Ljubljana, where he created the phenomenon now called Plečnik’s Ljubljana. Many of his ideas were conceived in his home, a house in Trnovo, a monument of national importance since 2009 and today a public museum. You are kindly invited to visit the Plečnik House and learn about this modest man responsible for such monumental architecture. Enter the house in which Plečnik’s Ljubljana was created!
