CITY MUSEUM OF LJUBLJANA – This museum charts the history of Ljubljana going right back to its early incarnation as the Roman fort town of Emona (which was founded around 14 AD) and beyond. In fact one of the highlights of the museum is the world’s oldest example of a wooden wheel, which was found preserved in mud in the marshes just outside Ljubljana and is around five and half millennia old (although due to its historical significance the wheel is sometimes exhibited abroad, so check ahead before you go). As you make your way through the building, you will also witness artefacts and events from Ljubljana’s more contemporary history, including many items from the Yugoslavian era, such as the once ubiquitous Fiat car. Naturally, I took a ride!
