Ljubljana surprises the visitor as a modern, friendly and liveable city. Ljubljana, the lively green city that combines the charm of a small town with the self-confidence of a large European city, is definitely worth a visit. The old town is very relaxed because it is car-free, lots of space to stroll and linger, many nice pubs with large guest gardens, very pretty situated directly on the river with the picturesque castle and the many ancient houses from the imperial era.

History of the house and its residents:

A striking building with a long history

Barbo Palace was built in 1755 for Count Jost Vajkard of Barbo.

Its unique baroque façade and courtyard with the only double staircase in Ljubljana make it one of the most fascinating historical buildings in Ljubljana. The building's history is rich, as it has been owned by many prominent Ljubljana families who have left their mark on it. Its walls can tell many stories.

One of the most famous guests of the Barbo Palace was King Ferdinand I. of Naples and Sicily, who resided in Palazzo Barbo for a month during the Congress of Ljubljana in 1821. He is said to have enjoyed his trip to Ljubljana and his stay in the city very much (J.J.Norwich).  Maybe because he lived in the Barbo Palace?!
