Default Ljubljana (Laibach)

Hi all,

I will be making a brief visit to Ljubljana in Slovenia and wonder what the best places are to see arms and armour? I only have limited time and canít travel around (would love to see the armoury in Graz one day!). Iím mostly interested in medieval arms and armour and other eras up until 18thC.

Many thanks for any advice.

Hello,
I would highly recommend you visit the National museum of Slovenia. The museum comprises of two separate buildings located within a 25min walk between each. One is located on Muzejska ulica 1 (Museum street 1) and the other on Maistrova ulica 1 (Maistrova street 1). The first one is a much older building built in the 19th century and houses a small collection of medieval messers, longswords, arming swords and other military items of that era.
The second one is a newer building, that houses some late medieval/renaissance swords, a crossbow, a complete set of a Maximilliam harness and lots of fire arms from the renaissance to the 20th century.

Both collections aren't huge but are interesting, because the items found in the Sava river are in a very good state. I hope you will be able to visit and that you enjoy the country.
-Luka
