Ljubljana is a city standing at the crossroads of European history and culture, where, over centuries, influences from the west and east, north and south have mixed. It lies at the juncture where Romanic, Germanic and Slavic worlds meet. We can argue that it is this crucial position that - through the centuries - provided for extremely rich cultural heritage dating back to prehistoric times and is today reflected in the vibrant tempo and cultural life of the city. Prehistoric heritage of Ljubljana’s marsh is a cultural heritage inscribed on the UNESCO list. A unique place in the history of Ljubljana is the period of Roman Emona.
