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).

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? 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.

The unusual life story of Dr Otmar Pirkmajer, the first rector of the UNRRA University “Free Europe”, which was founded in Munich in 1946 by the United Nations and where non-German refugees and other displaced persons taught and studied in the wake of the Second World War. The life of Dr Otmar Pirkmajer, lawyer, journalist, politician and a man who had survived the Dachau concentration camp twice, is the record of a remarkable and lesser-known personal story that unfolded during the ceaseless historical twists and turns of the 20th century

The Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana (MGML) was set up as a public institution in 2009, following a merger between a number of previously independent galleries and the City Museum of Ljubljana. We have been collecting artworks under this new name for more than a decade now, thereby continuing a tradition that was begun over a hundred years ago, in 1907, by the then mayor of Ljubljana, Ivan Hribar.
