On December 3rd 1919 at about 9:00 a.m. Fran Ramovš held the first lecture in Slovenian language at the Assembly room of the Provincial diet mansion in Ljubljana. This historic moment marks the establishment of Ljubljana University.
Take a moment and think about Europe at the end of WW I, a major crisis swept the continent, famine and general shortage of goods being just two of the problems people had to overcome, at this point, we also must keep in mind Ljubljana was hit by a major earthquake in 1895. The time for Slovenia to get it´s own university was ripe, the age of empires was over and a new political reality was here. The conditions on the other hand were not ideal.
