Recent archaeological excavations at Gosposvetska cesta comprised approximately 1360 hours of fieldwork. Around 1150 visitors were taken through the site in 66 guided tours.
On Monday 18 June, two separate exhibitions on Ivan Cankar opened at different venues, one mainly literary, the other biographical. This relates nicely to the “urban legend” on Ivan Cankar and two carriages.
In the Middle Ages, knights mostly belonged to the gentry. They served their feudal lord and in return for payment (or land) did military service and performed other tasks as well.
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.
