The story of the exploration of the Ljubljana Marshes and their pile dwellings is a long one, but it is far from over. Morostig opens the door to its core chapters, where you don’t just follow the paths of other researchers, but make your own path at interactive stations.



How long is the road to prehistory? In the Ljubljana Marshes, it is short and entertaining. It reveals the diversity of fauna and flora in the marshes, and offers a panorama observed since the time of the pile dwellers. Curiosity, let’s get moving!
