Viennese atmospheres, Central European heart, traces of Yugoslavia, this is Ljubljana
20 years after independence from the Socialist Federation and almost 8 years after joining the European Union, Ljubljana looks like a small Vienna in the palm of a hand. Throughout its history it has been influenced by its geographical position, at the crossroads of German, Slavic and Latin culture. For this reason the city boasts a wealth of history, tradition, style, art and culture. Its rhythm of life takes place in an environment that is, at the same time, Central European and Mediterranean, multilingual and hospitable. The recent migratory flows have involved Ljubljana as a stage of the “Balkan route”, increasing the cultural mix and placing the city at the center of a continuous social transformation.
