It was under Habsburg rule from the Middle Ages until the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918. After World War II, Ljubljana became the capital of the Socialist Republic of Slovenia, part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It retained this status until Slovenia became independent in 1991 and Ljubljana became the capital of the newly formed state.

The city’s architecture is a mix of styles. Despite the appearance of large buildings, especially at the city’s edge, Ljubljana’s historic center remains intact. Although the oldest architecture has been preserved from the Roman period, Ljubljana’s downtown got its outline in the Middle Ages. After the 1511 earthquake, it was rebuilt in the Baroque style following Italian, particularly Venetian, models (*source Wikipedia).

Your article is really informative and I gained a lot of knowledge by reading your article which is very helpful to me. I’m a travel fan so I went to Slovenia for my vacation last year and got up at the Kva Hostel Hotel in your article. Kva Hostel Hotel has a very comfortable and romantic atmosphere. As soon as I stepped in the door, I was immersed in an artistic and eclectic environment .This hostel is great for walking to the main city center, walking distance to all the main attractions, home bicycle rentals and Lublin Island boats. Ljubljana major sightseeing.I was able to cook in a shared kitchen, enjoy the laundry service, get free rest in the living room with fast Wi-Fi, cable TV, DVDs and books and explore the vast selection of cafes. And the other features are nice to me and it looks the best to me .

    I will definitely be delivering your article to my friend and he will be going to Slovenia soon and will definitely share his new experience with you. Can I share your article on my social media?
