Ljubljana is the cultural, political, commercial and educational centre of Slovenia. From 1991 it is the capital of the newly sovereign Republic of Slovenia.
The long history of the town starts with name Emona, back around 2000 BC, but the oldest writen record of Leibach (the German name for the city) is from 1144. The Slovene name Luwigana for the first time was mentioned in 1146.
