In Prešeren Square, a statue of 19th-century Romantic Slovene poet France Prešeren stands with a muse above him. Our tour guide said the model of the muse was her great grandmother. The statue, when unveiled in 1905, was a huge scandal because the model only wore a skirt. Locals would try and cover up the statue because it sat in front of a church. Sadly, her great grandmother was kicked out of her house by her family over the modeling job. Strangely it’s not mentioned in the Wiki article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prešeren_Monument,_Ljubljana).
