SHORT HISTORY

The legend says that in the ancient times, the Greek hero Jason with Argonauts stole the golden fleece from the king Aite. On the run, they found a large lake and a swamp, where they encountered a terrible swamp monster. Jason fought and killed it. This is supposed to be the dragon of Ljubljana, which still resides on the Ljubljana’s coat-of-arms at the top of the castle tower.

The first inhabitants around the swamp of Ljubljana were the bridgeheads that lived there around 2000 b.c., in wooden settlements placed on stakes, driven into the bottom of a swamp or lake. At the beginning of a.c. the area of present-day Ljubljana was inhabited by the Romans. They set up a military camp and named it Emona. The Emona center was a forum surrounded by high walls. Ljubljana acquired the city status in 1220. From the 14th century onwards was followed by the almost 600-year reign of the Hapsburg family. In 1941, Ljubljana was taken over by an Italian occupier and in fall 1943 by an German occupier. The Italians surrounded Ljubljana with a 30 km long barbed wire and bunkers (today’s Memorial and Comrades’ Path). Ljubljana became a Yugoslav city in 1945, and in 1991 Slovenia became independent and Ljubljana became the capital of Slovenia.
