The Roman Pyramid Ljubljana

The Roman Pyramid – Full of youngsters

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.

For obvious reason don’t expect to see shirtless climbers during the winter, but the place does offer some fresh air and nice tranquility in these cold months.
