Ljubljana is the main and largest city of Slovenia. City Municipality of Ljubljana is one of the 11 city municipalities in the country.
The city lies on the river Ljubljanica, about 10 km from the Sava river. Historians do not agree on the origin of the name of Ljubljana. In the opinion of some, the source should be sought in the word ljubljena, others consider it to be the old deity Laburus, the third claim that the word came from the Latin expression for the river that floods, aluviana. Some people think that it originates from the German Laubach - a lukewarm stream.
