The exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of the Roman city of Emona, built two millenniums ago on the site of the present-day Ljubljana. Learn about the city's birth, life and decline, the everyday life of its residents, and the heritage they left behind.
The Roman colony Emona was founded on the site of the present-day Ljubljana almost precisely 2000 years ago. The remnants of the city, which had existed for 500 years, were being explored already in the Middle Ages. Since then, the knowledge about the ancient predecessor of Ljubljana has grown tremendously, but the most recent archaeological explorations carried out in the centre of Ljubljana have yielded yet another set of remarkable new findings.
