The Emona Archaeological Park, with its 2000-year-old remains of the Roman colony of Emona, forms part of Ljubljana city centre. Development of the park began in the 1930s. During the most recent restoration work, 10 years ago, we decided to protect and revitalise the Emonan remains by creating an exciting programme and encouraging the public to visit. Today, where ancient walls once stood, we now create, learn and amuse ourselves.
