83 Fantastic Black and White Snapshots Documented Everyday Life of Ljubljana, Slovenia in the Early 1960s

Ljubljana is the capital and largest city of Slovenia. During antiquity, it was the site of a Roman city called Emona. It was under Habsburg rule from the Middle Ages until the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918.

Situated at the middle of a trade route between the northern Adriatic Sea and the Danube region, it was the historical capital of Carniola, a Slovene-inhabited part of the Habsburg Monarchy. Its central geographic location within Slovenia, transport connections, concentration of industry, scientific and research institutions, and cultural tradition are contributing factors to its leading position.

Here below is an amazing collection of 83 black and white snapshots that shows everyday life of Ljubljana in the early 1960s.
