About this spot
The Square of the French Revolution features tall obelisk dedicated to the Illyrian Province - a territory founded in early 19th century when Napoleon conquered the area. The obelisk was built from Karst marble by architect Jože Plečnik. The Napoleon's face was created by Slovene sculptor Zdenko Kalin. This is the only monument to Napoleon's glory outside of France.
