A central exhibition of the Plečnik Year 2022 sheds light on Plečnik’s architectural oeuvre and unveils numerous innovative ideas and techniques, which this multifaceted artist used in his diverse fields of creative work. The exhibition offers an opportunity for a reflection on Plečnik’s ideas and an artistic view of them in the 21st century.
We are continuing our series of exhibitions and publications dedicated to the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana’s art collection from the 20th and 21st century.
How well do you know the rich history of Slovenian capital? Pile-dwellers, Emona, Middle and New Ages, the 20th and 21st centuries… what is the history of Ljubljana? Get to know Ljubljana's past - see the chronological presentation of Ljubljana’s millennia of heritage with precious authentic artefacts, like the world's oldest wooden wheel with an axle!
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. The excavations uncovered part of Roman Emona’s northern cemetery. At one time, this would have extended along the road leading to Celeia (today’s Celje).
Ivan Cankar, a Slovenian author, playwright and essayist born in 1876 in Vrhnika, spent a few years of his life in Ljubljana. Having returned from Vienna to Ljubljana, he established himself on Rožnik Hill which today forms part of the Tivoli, Rožnik and Šišenski hrib landscape park.
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.
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.
