Slovenian towns first received their urban appearance two millennia ago as the ancient Romans arrived. In medieval times, these towns spread and changed, and much evidence of this can still be found if you explore the old town centres.
Technical innovations enabled the construction of the Ljubljana Nebotičnik which was the tallest building in Central Europe in 1933. After World War II, public spaces were transformed by numerous modern buildings, new settlements and towns, and the 21st century brought about architectural forms that sometimes dominate the function.
The history of Ljubljana is best shown through the city’s streets. The buildings from different time periods and architectural styles tell stories of those who lived in Ljubljana in the past. Buildings across the city complement each other and create Ljubljana’s stunning architecture.
