Ljubljana is the capital and the main political, economic, and cultural center of Slovenia. Located in central Europe at the easternmost tip of the Alps and an hour’s drive from the Adriatic sea, the city has been inhabited since prehistoric times and many remains of the Roman Emona can be seen while strolling in the streets. The modern Ljubljana bears a strong stamp of the architecture of Jože Plečnik. With the largest university nationwide and many institutes, Ljubljana is also an important research hub known, e.g., for its tradition in liquid-crystals science and soft condensed matter physics in general.
