June 1. 2014 - May 31. 2015 Step into Emona, a city that developed 2000 years ago along the left bank of the Ljubljanica River. Get acquainted with the old Emonans, loyal Roman citizens. See how they lived, their rituals and values. Extraordinary Roman achievements still echoed through the 20th century. How? Come to the City Museum and see for yourself!
November 27. 2014 The exhibition Emona: a City of the Empire also sheds light on the heritage of Emona, which already started shaping in the 17th century and really came into full swing in the 20th century. It exposes extensive archaeological excavations in the latter half of the previous century and a plethora of artefacts, companies and projects that found their identity in Ljubljana’s Roman past. Lend your ears to the lecture of Irena Žmuc, MA, on Thursday, 27 November, at 6.00 p.m.
