A very bright room with a balcony and a stunning view. The interior playfully references the Roman style, a reminder of Emona, the ancient Roman predecessor of Ljubljana.
The room has a bright and charming bathroom, but its highlight is the exceptional view: looking out of the room your eye follows the green, always slightly mysterious Ljubljanica river that slowly winds through the city core, whereas the balcony offers a view of the majestic Ljubljana Castle.
A peek into history …
Ljubljana at the time of the Roman Empire
Some 2000 years ago the Roman town of Emona covered a large part of today’s Ljubljana city core. The town, with its rectangular grid pattern, was enclosed by a stone wall and a double moat. It is believed that about 5,000 colonists lived in Emona, and they made their livelihood through agriculture, trade, and crafts. Owing to its geographical position, Emona played an important role in the Roman Empire’s defence system.
No buildings stood on the site of today’s Zlata ladjica in Emona, but there was a pier where merchants trading with the old inhabitants tied their boats.
