Top art museums and galleries in Ljubljana

Ljubljana is the city of an exceptional artistic life. Its rich legacy is complemented by a lively contemporary art scene.

The National Gallery holds mainly older iconic works of art, such as works of Baroque artists, the Slovenian impressionists, and paintings of Ivana Kobilica and Zoran Mušič. The adjacent Museum of Modern Art represents artistic phenomena of 20th and 21st century, such as the constructivism of Avgust Černigoj, the monumental realism of Tone Kralj, and the avant-garde provocation of Neue Slowenische Kunst.
