Slovenia facts and history in brief


Ljubljana
Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.



Ljubljana is the capital and largest city of Slovenia.
It is situated in central Slovenia, between the Alps and the Mediterranean.

Ljubljana is pronounced [ljub'ljana] in English and Slovenian.
Its German name is Laibach while the Italian is Lubiana.

Historians disagree as to where the name comes from. Although it is commonly pointed out that it originates out of the Slovenian word ljubljena (a feminine form of beloved), this is not known for certain. T
he name may just as well have evolved from the Latin term for a flooding river, aluviana.
Some also believe the source of the present-day name is Laburus, an old Slavonic deity and supposed patron of the original settlement.
And Laibach, the German name for the city, may have borrowed itself from Laubach (a lukewarm beck, in German).

Ljubljana is located at 46.03N, 14.30E on the outfall of the river Ljubljanica into the Sava.
Its lies at an altitude of 298 meters above sea level.
The temperature varies between 0C (38.1 F) in December and 21.9C (71.4 F) in July.
