There are at least two explanations for the origin of the Slovenian name of the city: after the one he comes from ljubljena (beloved town), aluviana after the other from the Latin name of the River. Here, you can learn more about this interesting city!

The style this is photographed in made me think at first that it was actually drawn in pencil. Though it actually isn't I still love the technique and think it is an even more special photograph because of it.
