Google celebrates Plečnik's 140th birthday


As you probably know, Google occasionally changes the logo on their webpage (www.google.com). These logos celebrating various important events are also known as Google Doodles. Recently there was an interesting one named "Blacked out logo" - Google's way of protesting against SOPA.


Global issues are usually addressed on their main site but logos of local (national) Google pages also change from time to time. Today for the first time a Slovenian Doodle was published. It celebrates the 140th birthday of Jože Plečnik an architect famous for completing many architectural projects in Vienna, Prague and Ljubljana (the place of his birth).


Today's Google Doodle represents his work in the city center of Ljubljana - The Triple Bridge. If you have seen it, you know what I am talking about. If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you do it before tourists flood this charming city completely.


To see the doodle on Google site you will probably have to open the page www.google.si instead of your local version (or be physically located in Slovenia).
As you have probably guessed, the .si stands for Slovenia.

Slovenia is pretty high on my list of places to visit, so I'm sure I'll see it soon :)
