its 280.000 inhabitants, Ljubljana most certainly ranks among the smaller
European capitals, but we are convinced that many bigger cities could
be envious of all that it has, and many who would not. Ljubljana did
not become a capital overnight, it prepared for this for centuries.
When it was still "only" a provincial capital of Carniola,
it became the capital for all Slovenians in 1918, when the Austro-Hungarian
monarchy collapsed. A year later, in 1919, it acquired a university,
in 1938 the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, a radio station
as early as 1926 and TV in 1957. It had its own Philharmonic in 1701
and its opera exactly one hundred years ago, not to speak of its theaters.
In short, if smallness is its only deficiency, let it be so, as long
as it can!
