Exhibition of Slovenian History

You are invited to take a stroll through the colourful past of our capital city and country. If you want to experience the essence of Slovenian and Ljubljana history in one place, come to the castle and visit the permanent exhibition Slovenian History. You will find out how, when and by whom our history has been shaped right up to the present day. Set out on a journey into the past that is guaranteed to be full of surprises.

What to Expect

The fragments of our history that you will see, touch and hear at the exhibition are just some of the many that can be found in museums, exhibitions and venues throughout Slovenia. They are here now to invite you on a journey through our land and its stories. Since ancient times, the present-day territory of Slovenia – with its extraordinary location at the crossroads of natural paths between the Alps, the Adriatic and Pannonia – has been a meeting point of different cultures and peoples, who have left us a rich heritage with their deeds and ways of life. The exhibition can also be viewed with the help of the Ljubljana Castle audioguide system.

Guided Tour of the Exhibition

A guided tour of the exhibition is possible by prior arrangement. Due to the somewhat limited space, the maximum number of persons per group is 20. In the case of larger groups, we recommend combining the guided tour a with other programmes from our offer. The exhibition has a contemporary design – by viewing photographs and touching objects, visitors can gain an even deeper insight into former times.
