Ljubljana, a cool capital for great meetings

Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is an ideal place for meetings. Being a small, easily navigable city with a green soul and modern conference facilities, it is currently ranked 50th in the ICCA international conference statistics.

Ljubljana as an ideal place for meetings is presented by Tatjana Radovič, head of the Ljubljana Convention Bureau at Ljubljana Tourism, who reveals, among other things, how Ljubljana became one of Europe's first congress cities.

Picturesque, readily accessible, and easy to get around

Ljubljana lies halfway between Vienna and Venice, at the crossroads of different cultures, geographical regions and historical developments. Its location within a convenient two-hour flight from almost all major European airports makes it a readily accessible destination for meetings.

Ljubljana can easily be described as green and picturesque. Its old city centre is full of outstanding architecture, a medley of styles from different periods in history bound together into one of the 20th century's most amazing total works of art by the world famous architect and urban planner Jože Plečnik.

The city has a relaxed atmosphere and its life seems to move along at a slow pace, always with the focus on the joys of the present moment.
