Slovenia, wedged between Austria and Italy, has always been proud of its unique heritage. The capital, Ljubljana, is a perfect example of this blend of German, Mediterranean, and Slovenian culture. The old town is a blend of Baroque, Renaissance, and Art Nouveau buildings, watched over by a medieval castle. Cut through the gardens of Tivoli Park to the National Museum of Contemporary History for a history of modern Slovenia, featuring crumbled statues of Stalin and a recreation of a WWI trench.
The National Museum of Contemporary History is located in Cekin Mansion at the edge of Tivoli Park in Ljubljana. The Baroque mansion was constructed between 1752 and 1755. The Museum was housed here already in 1951.
