Tito – A Yugoslavian Icon is an exhibition going on until the end of this month. To be precise, you now only have until Friday 28 Feb to see it.

Tito on the cover of Time in 1949


It is the first and largest Tito exhibition in Slovenia, telling the story of an icon of the 20th century from our former common country – Yugoslavia.

It presents Josip Broz – Tito as the face, icon and historical figure of a time, which vis-à-vis history cannot be lost or forgot.








At the exhibition one can see many and all sorts of pictures, from his numerous travels over the grounds of his home Yugoslavia to his journeys abroad, all the while meeting children or presidents and other high-profile personalities from around the world.

1962 New Year’s Party

There are also many fun pictures, like the impressive collection from New Year’s Parties. Additionally, countless objects, documents, statues, an enormous collection of stamps, video recordings… are on display.

The exhibition takes place in a building called Slovenijales next to Gospodarsko razstavišče – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre.  It is open every day from 10 AM to 6 PM, until 28 February.

President’s shadow


Apart from Tito’s belongings, there are many details on post-war Yugoslavia with explanations in Slovene and (luckily) in English as well.

It even includes one about the famous Dedek Mraz, Yugoslavian Santa Claus.

This exhibition is a full and inviting way for a visitor to become aware of a major part of our history.





Regular entrance fee is 10 €, but check out their discount list here.
