Ljubljana City

Ljubljana  is the capital and largest city of Slovenia. It has been the cultural, educational, economic, political, and administrative center of independent Slovenia since 1991. Its central geographic location within Slovenia, transport connections, concentration of industry, scientific and research institutions, and cultural tradition are contributing factors to its leading position.

Ljubljana

During antiquity, a Roman city called Emona stood in the area. Ljubljana itself was first mentioned in the first half of the 12th century. It was under Habsburg rule from the Middle Ages until the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918. Situated at the middle of a trade route between the northern Adriatic Sea and the Danuberegion, it was the historical capital of Carniola, a Slovene-inhabited part of the Habsburg Monarchy.

Tivoli City Park (Mestni park Tivoli) is the largest park in Ljubljana.It was designed in 1813 by the French engineer Jean Blanchard and now covers approximately 5 km2 (1.9 sq mi). The park was laid out during the French imperial administration of Ljubljana in 1813 and named after the Parisian Jardins de Tivoli. Between 1921 and 1939, it was renovated by the Slovene architect Jože Plečnik, who unveiled his statue of Napoleon in 1929 in Republic Square and designed a broad central promenade, called the Jakopič Promenade (Jakopičevo sprehajališče) after the leading Slovene impressionist painter Rihard Jakopič. Within the park, there are different types of trees, flower gardens, several statues, and fountains.Several notable buildings stand in the park, among them Tivoli Castle, the National Museum of Contemporary Historyand the Tivoli Sports Hall.

Pearl of the Mediterranean

Portorož is the centre of an incredible part of the Mediterranean on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula. Portorož, a city with a holiday atmosphere, lies in a leeward bay and has a very pleasant climate due to its proximity to the sea. The neighbouring, ancient city of Piran is one of the most beautiful Mediterranean cities and one of the best preserved historic cities in Europe.

 

The whole area is a string of natural attractions and cultural sights, all lined up along only a few kilometres.

This small piece of Istria awaits you with countless experiences.

 

Portorož belongs to the coastal municipality of Piran, located in the southwest of the Gulf of Trieste (at the northernmost point of the Adriatic Sea) between the boundaries of Italy to the north and Croatia to the south. Part of Portorož are the streets Fiesa and Pacug.
