celebrated 'The Eleventh School' or ‘The School Under the Bridge’ ('Enajsta šola pod mostom') in the sketch story ‘My life’. ‘The
school’ took place on the bank and the shallows of the Ljubljanica, under the bridge
which leads from Vrhnika towards Verd and Borovnica. This site was a popular
meeting place for children. They pulled different and interesting object out of
the river, played variety of games and shortened their time.
Cankar writes: "I
have studied a great deal in my lifetime, but such rich and useful wisdom as
the ‘scholl’ under the bridge confers to its pupils I never found elsewhere."
