History of Ljubljana
Just released: New Monograph on Ljubljana history from the prehistoric first settlement to the development of a modern capital and contemporary city.
From pile dwellings to a green capital
Are you interested in 40,000 years old weapons used by Paleolithic hunters? Was the life of a pile-dweller really idyllic? Are you in awe of the hunting image from the bronze belt buckle or miniature engraved gems made from semi-precious gemstones? Would you trust your health to the hands and scalpel of the Emonan doctor? Where was money counterfeited during the Middle Ages again? Where did Adam and Eve stand in Ljubljana? What did the beggar’s fear do in the city? Why was Anica Gorjup burnt at the stake? Have you ever asked yourself where did “white Ljubljana” come from? What did the railroad bring to Ljubljana? How was life in Ljubljana like when it was encircled by barbed wire? How did Metelkova mesto Autonomous Cultural Zone come to be?
You can read all of it and more, in the book History of Ljubljana. Artefacts, images, and texts, condensed into ten chapters, bring to life the history of Ljubljana, from the prehistoric first settlement to the development of a modern capital and contemporary city.
