The EUROPEAN GREEN CAPITAL 2016, Ljubljana has congresses written in its DNA. In 1821, long before the emergence of the meetings industry as we know it today, Ljubljana hosted the Congress of the Holy Alliance. It brought together important sovereigns, politicians and diplomats of the time to draw a new political map of Europe after Napoleon’s downfall.
Due to its natural passage through the Ljubljana basin, the Slovenian capital has always had a linking role between South East and Cen-tral Europe. Ljubljana has many attributes of a big city, while creating the impression of a smaller and friendly town, which makes it so relaxing. The city is compact, picturesque, attractive and friendly to delegates attending conferences, corporate events or incentives pro-grammes. Due to its accessibility and the well-developed and diversified meeting infrastructure, Ljubljana is Slovenia’s major congress destination, having the highest share of (international) meetings. Ljubljana is extremely safe and it is one of the most sustainably-orient-ed cities in the region.
