city of ljubljana

Ljubljana is the political, science and cultural centre of Slovenia. With its 279.653 inhabitants (1.1.2010) it is also the biggest city and the most important Slovene economic centre. It is also the university town with more than 50.000 students. The Slovene capital has an important geostrategic position. The unique Karst region, the Adriatic coast, mountains, hilly wine-growing regions, spas, and many historic towns are all within a two-hour drive. Ljubljana is a modern city with a rich heritage influenced by Roman, German and Slavic nations.

The history has managed to retain traces from all periods of its rich five millennia history: from the Roman Emona through to the Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau periods characterised in the house fronts, the romantic bridges adorning the Ljubljanica river, a park reaching deep into the city centre and with the work of Jože Plečnik, pioneer of modern architecture.
