The Ljubljana dragon, the guardian and symbol of the city
The dragon is a symbol of vigilance, and is one of the most iconic symbols of Ljubljana. You will see dragons of all sizes and forms all over the city: on fences, façades, and pavements, as a mascot of different societies and a feature of various brand logos.
It was Janez Vajkard Valvasor, a natural historian and polymath from Carniola, present-day Slovenia, in the 17th century who first put the dragon in the city’s coat of arms to remind people of the mythological origin of Ljubljana, which says it was here that the Greek hero Jason defeated the horrible dragon and founded the city. But Jason was not the only one to defeat a dragon here – the Christian patron saint of Ljubljana, St. George, also slew a dragon.
Today, however, the Ljubljana dragon is a very different creature from the terrible beast that Jason slew. It is a small, green, and good-natured little dragon. He frequently flies over Ljubljana, lands on the Dragon Bridge, and quietly watches the goings-on. But it is more or less only children who see him, while for the adults he remains veiled in the mysterious mists of the river and the city around it.
