What used to be a Roman wall, 2.4 meters wide and 6 to 8 meters high, was renovated less than a century ago by the architect Joze Plecnik, who knew how important nature is. He designed a park inside the wall and built a stone pyramid over the gate using old Roman stones from the neighborhood.
Because of its stone structure free climbers spend hours here, hanging on the wall, trying to learn the grips. On the top of the wall you can relax, have a beer or just watch shirtless climbers training their muscles. One gets an even better view from the pyramid so don’t hesitate to climb it. Just be careful not to fall! You can also try to play didgeridoo under the arcades of the gate, it has good acoustics.
Now, during the warm half of the year, the wall is quite popular, mainly with high school students that come here to enjoy sun or maybe play guitar, rather than spend time in the classrooms, and students from the neighboring faculties.
