Ljubljana is the vibrant, friendly capital city of Slovenia, located in the heart of Europe at a crossroads for traders and invaders alike. All have left their mark in terms of architecture and culture, in the cuisine and the character of the people. Despite hundreds of years of change, the city has managed to retain traces from all eras of its rich history, including the Roman, Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau periods. The origins of the name 'Ljubljana' are shrouded in mystery – some say it stems from the Old Slavic name of the Ljubljanica River, while a more romantic theory is that it comes from the Slavic ljub meaning 'to love or like'.
God's blessing on all nations, who long and work for that bright day, when o'er earth's habitations no war, no strife shall hold its sway; who long to see that all men free, no more shall foes, but neighbours be.
'Zdravljica', France Prešeren
Ljubljana is also famed as a city of culture and is home to many museums, galleries and theatres. It boasts one of the oldest philharmonic orchestras in the world, which saw Gustav Mahler as its resident conductor in 1881, while Slovene poet France Prešeren is remembered throughout the city. Today, Ljubljana hosts over 10,000 cultural events, including ten world-renowned international festivals.
