Mighty Guardians of the Past: Castles in the Slovenian Lands

Thematic exhibition

Add to MyVisit Add to MyVisit

Castles have always stirred our imagination. Irrespective of their importance and renown, castles, with their might and solidity, from up close or from afar proudly draw our attention to their past role as guardians of the countryside, cities and borders, and of their mainly noble inhabitants.

The central thematic exhibition at the Ljubljana Castle in 2019 reveals Slovenia as a country of castles. With its exposé of five Slovenian castles and their associated personalities who marked Slovenia’s past, and with various photographic material and models, the exhibition illuminates the rich heritage that has been preserved for us through the centuries by castles.

The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of art historian, conservator and castle expert Dr Ivan Stopar, who, with his decades of original and passionate work, brought the Slovenian castle heritage closer to people.
