Ljubljana, the Slovenian capital - a city, whose name means ‘The beloved’, is a great place to visit, although you will not find world renowned attractions here. Nevertheless, it has history, tradition, style, arts & culture, an atmosphere that is both Central European and Mediterranean; many also add the adjectives multilingual and hospitable. Being close to many of the major sights and attractions of Slovenia, Ljubljana can also be your starting point to discover the country’s diversity.

Ljubljana is situated about halfway between Vienna and Venice. Its character and appearance have been shaped by diverse cultural influences and historical events. While in winter it is remarkable for its dreamy Central European character, it is the relaxed Mediterranean feel that stands out during summer.

Ljubljana is a picturesque city full of romantic views, with a medieval castle towering over its historical city centre and a calm river spanned by a series of beautiful bridges running right through it. It's a city with a medieval heart, a city of the Baroque and Art Nouveau, with an old castle resting above it like a sleeping beauty.

In Ljubljana eastern and western cultures met; and the Italian concept of art combined with the sculptural aesthetics of Central European cathedrals. The city owes its present appearance partly to Italian baroque and partly to Art Nouveau, which is the style of the numerous buildings erected immediately after the earthquake of 1895.

The central point of interest in Ljubljana is the Ljubljana Castle, watching over the city from the centrally located castle hill. The beginnings of the medieval castle go back to the 9th century, although the castle building is first mentioned only in 1144. It gained its present image after the earthquake of 1511 and following further renovations at the beginning of the 17th century. At present, a funicular connects the Old Town to the castle hill, adding an even more convenient access alternative to the tourist train.

Ljubljana lies at the centre of Slovenia. In the morning you can visit the stunningly beautiful Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj or Soča Valley in the high mountainous region of the Alps, and in the evening enjoy the sunset in one of the charming little towns on the Adriatic coast.
It only takes minutes to reach the peaceful and unspoiled countryside of the city's green surrounding areas, which offer endless opportunities for hiking, cycling, fishing and horse riding.

We are very excited of the fact that the TSD conference leaves the Czech Republic for the first time within its 22-year history and that the TSD2019 is going to take place in such a wonderful location as Ljubljana.


The conference is organized by the Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of West Bohemia, Pilsen, the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University,
Brno, and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana.
