Virtual Castle

Over the years, the Ljubljana Castle has changed and developed, and its visual image has become more beautiful. Before you climb the Viewing Tower, make a stop just below it and explore the castle’s colourful past through a state-of-the-art 4D experience.
Make yourself comfortable. Twelve minutes of virtual time travel is about to begin!

What to Expect

Friderik’s presentation of the castle’s history goes beyond typical storytelling: visitors not only learn about the past, they really experience it. This is made possible by modern technology. The interweaving of tradition and modernity is created by shadow theatre animation and precise digital reconstructions. The overall experience is rounded off by sound elements that enrich the visual presentation, lighting effects that highlight key moments of the castle’s stories, and haptic responses that allow you to feel the story through special effects such as vibrating seats, artificial fog, rain, snow and so on. The use of stereoscopic projection adds depth and makes it feel like you are really there – in the castle’s distant or not so distant past. Get to know the rich history of the Ljubljana Castle, its architectural development and archaeological findings, from prehistoric times to the present day.

The twelve-minute projection can be viewed in Slovenian, English, German, Italian, Croatian, Russian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Hungarian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

The projection contains scenes with flashing light effects that may affect viewers who are at risk of experiencing epileptic seizures due to light sensitivity or who suffer from other forms of such sensitivity.
