Library under the Treetops is a recognised and well-attended parade of free reading, browsing and enjoyment, popular among all generations of both domestic and foreign visitors to the capital.
In addition to the traditional castle reading corner under the chestnut trees in the courtyard of the Ljubljana Castle, accompanied by live reading music on Sundays, in 2017 we will also arrange an architectural corner with selected literature about architecture and the other fields of activity of Jože Plečnik, entitled Plečnik and Architecture in Books. This year, we mark the 60th anniversary of the death of the renowned Slovenian architect.
Every Sunday at 11.00 am, the browsing and reading of books will be accompanied by live mood music.
The reading adventure is organised in collaboration with the Divja Misel Institute.
We recommend using the funicular to visit the library.

She graduated from the Ljubljana Conservatory of Music and Ballet in the class of Žiga Brank, and at the Academy her teacher is Janez Podlesek. Metka Udovč studies the violin with Vasilij Meljnikov. Together, the two musicians will play Bartók’s duets for two violins and Leclair’s Sonata for Two Violins, No. 5.
