Both the residents of Ljubljana and numerous visitors say that Ljubljana is a city made to man's measure. Classified as a medium-sized European city, it offers all the friendliness of a small town and at the same time everything that a capital should offer. Due to its geographical position, Ljubljana is an ideal departure point for discovering the many faces and beauties of Slovenia.

Ljubljana bears witness of all the five millenniums of its history. Apart from the remains of the Roman Emona, it boasts a Medieval castle and numerous old city centre Baroque buildings with uneven roofs and richly decorated façades and portals. The mosaic of Ljubljana is completed by picturesque bridges across the Ljubljanica river and the vast Tivoli park, which extends to the very city centre. The centre of Ljubljana owes its appearance partly  to the  masters  of  the Italian  Baroque

and partly to those of the Art Nouveau period, the latter being reflected in the style of many buildings built immediately after the earthquake of 1895.
 

In the first half of the 20th century, it was the world famous Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik who stamped a strong personal mark on his birth place. The city's appearance was later contributed to by his disciples and the "new wave" of distinguished young Slovenian architects.
