In July and August 2022, during renovation of the hot water supply system in Argentina Park, archaeological research was carried out in the area between Štefanova ulica and Puharjeva ulica.

A special place in Ljubljana's history is reserved for Roman Emona, the traces of which have been preserved in the very centre of the city.

Welcome to a trail tracing the 2000-year-old heritage of Emona. A walk through modern Ljubljana can take you further than you think! It takes you to the time of Emona, a city brimming with life between the first century and early sixth century. 

Ali je (bil) spol pomemben? Kaj bi dekleta morala vedeti?
Ali je (bil) spol pomemben? Kaj bi dekleta morala vedeti? Slovenske umetnice v obdobju 1850–1950
12. 10. 2023–11. 2. 2024

Dejstvo je, da so ženske ustvarjale skozi vso zgodovino likovne umetnosti. A je bilo njihovo delo zaradi poenostavljanja in izčiščevanja, ki ju zahteva umetnostna kronologija, ves čas prepuščeno pozabi. Poveličevanje posameznikov in ustvarjanje mitov je v zgodovinopisju dovoljevalo le vpis posameznic, kot je v slovenskem primeru denimo Ivana Kobilca.

City Museum of Ljubljana

Since its foundation in 1935, the City Museum of Ljubljana has been housed by the Auersperg Palace. The museum conserves tens of thousands  museum treasures, among which the world's oldest wooden wheel with an axle is the most prominent. Among the museum's more noticeable projects in the last few years were the exhibitions WHEEL 5200, WATER, Emona: a City of the Empire, A New Age is Coming! Industry – Labour – Capital, and Medieval Ljubljana.

With the merger of the City Museum of Ljubljana and the City Art Gallery of Ljubljana in 2009 into the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana, the city's largest cultural institution, the museum became part of the living and current museum-gallery offering. At the institution, we maintain genuine contact with our local and foreign visitors, our exhibitions and events serve to popularise collections, and we encourage dialogue between heritage, art, and the challenges of contemporary society.
