Not far from the centre of Ljubljana, you can visit the memorial house, which is the birthplace of the great Slovenian poet Valentin Vodnik. Today it hosts a number of exhibitions and other cultural events. On 9 May 2020, in collaboration with the Press Museum, a virtual exhibition “Tito and the Press: From Icon to Cult,” based on archival newspapers dedicated to the 40th anniversary of Tito’s death, was opened here.

The building, which is a combination of a fortress and a palace, presents archaeological, ethnological, cultural, and historical collections of Maribor and its environs. The “I Believe. So I Exist” exhibition dedicated to various religions is offered to the museum visitors in online mode.

5. Slovenian Coal Industry Museum

On the museum’s website, visitors can familiarise themselves online with the traditions of coal mining and the life of miners in the past. With the help of a virtual exhibition, you will make your way from mining locker rooms to apartments, touch the mysterious underground world and feel how hard was the mining work.
