INSTITUTIONS IN LJUBLJANA
Useful addresses and contacts – for the stock exchange, universities, parliament, embassies and other important institutions of business, social and political life in the capital.
Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and some of the most important political, cultural, medical, educational and financial institutions have found their place in Ljubljana.
Most of them are based in the city center but some also in other parts of the city.
Even though travellers usually turn to their embassies for help when abroad, we hope you will only want to find your embassy to say hi to your ambassador and not because you got into trouble.
In case anything less pleasant happens, do not hesitate to contact your embassy for legal aid.
