Plečnik Stairs, Fountain and Arches

The internationally acclaimed architect Jože Plečnik set new accents in Kranj. At the top of Vodopivec Street, he designed a monumental entrance to the town. And he did this very well indeed with the staircase, the arches and the fountain, from which the bronze rooster pours water into terraced basins.

Plečnik also participated in the reconstruction of Prešeren Theatre. With arches and his typical lamps, he created a distinctive façade for the theatre.
