  • Permanent exhibition on Slovenian History at Ljubljana Castle

    On 23 June 2010, a group of leading historians, museum experts and designers under the guidance of Dr. Božo Repe, Blaž Vurnik and Irena Šinkovec mounted a contemporary exhibition at Ljubljana Castle that presents Slovenian history in a concise, transparent and comprehensive way with an emphasis on selected topics and personalities. It is intended for both Slovenian and foreign visitors, with Slovenian history being presented in a popular way.

    The exhibition consists of original objects, replicas, tactile exhibits, interactive content and audiovisual digitalised information adapted for children and persons with special needs.
    The exhibition is conceived chronologically and divided into six sections covering prehistory and the Roman period, the middle and early modern period, the 19th century and WWI, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and WWII, socialist Yugoslavia and independent Slovenia.  

    The exhibition also includes a presentation of society, the state formation, political, social and economic conditions, migratory movements, traffic, culture, architecture and everyday life in each particular period.

    The exhibition is at Ljubljana Castle.
