The main event in celebration of the 2000th anniversary of Emona will try to recreate the atmosphere of Roman times. Ljubljana's Kongresni trg square will be occupied by costumed members of historical societies from Slovenia and abroad.
Roman legionaries will be demonstrating their skills and organizing themselves into military formations; Roman citizens will perform a ritual in celebration of the foundation of Emona, a legal dispute, and Roman dances; gladiators will be fighting for glory.
Both children and adults will be able to join Roman-themed workshops and get acquainted with Roman fine art and pottery, the organization of the Roman army, Roman medicine, and more. A Roman market will be selling handicrafts, and various refreshments will be served at a Roman taberna.
