Ljubljana & Surroundings

Ljubljana is Slovenia's capital and its largest city with a population of around 300.000. Most of country's administration is concentrated here, several cultural institutions (including National Gallery, National Museum, Opera and National Theatre) and a full interdisciplinary university all testify about the importance of Ljubljana for the whole nation.

Historically, Ljubljana area has been populated since early stone age when settlements were situated on the shores of a lake that extended to the South of the actual city. Romans erected a military camp that was later transformed in a provincial town named Emona. Several archeological sites spread across the city center display fragments of the roman architecture. A medieval town was first mentioned in the early 13th century.
