Ljubljana’s development was strongly influenced by its geographical position. The city is a centre point of Slovenia. It attracts many tourists every year. Visitors are mostly delighted by its hospitality and quality accommodations. Mostly tourists use Ljubljana hotels for overnight stay. The hotels are well kept in most cases. The other advantage of staying at hotel is friendly stuff which often speaks English, Italian and German language. Hostels are mostly reserved for younger visitors (students).

The territory of Ljubljana has been settled for over 3000 years. First inhabitants of Ljubljana lived during the Stone Age on the shore at the Ljubljana Marshes. The Romans came at the beginning of the 1st century and built a military camp and called it Emona. Ljubljana was first mentioned as a town in the 13th century. The railway reached Ljubljana in 1849 which was a breaking point for Ljubljana’s development.

After the Second World War Ljubljana became the part of the Yugoslavia. The next 60 years Ljubljana was not improving a lot because of the socialism. At June 25th 1991 Ljubljana became the capital of newborn Slovenia.  It has growing every year since. Today Ljubljana is a modern city with many shopping centres, sport areas, cultural buildings and walking spots.
