Ljubljana (Slovenia)

The twinning between Wiesbaden and Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, proclaimed in 1977, is characterised by cooperation in the cultural and economic realms.

First contact was made when Ljubljana invited the Lord Mayor Rudi Schmitt to visit its International Wine Fair in August of 1968. Though Schmitt was unable to go that year, he took Ljubljana up on its offer the following year. The German-Yugoslavian Society also provided encouragement for forging a friendship between the two cities.

The twinning charter was signed in March 1977 at the Alpe-Adria Fair in Ljubljana. The twinning is comprised of economic, cultural and artistic collaborations, encounters among youth groups and athletes, as well as an exchange of professionals from various sectors of the communities.
