Exhibition BODY WORLDS VITAL first time in Ljubljana


BODY WORLDS is the first exhibition of its kind to inform the visitor about anatomy, physiology and health through viewing real human bodies. The specimens on display were preserved through Plastination, the preservation process invented by physician and anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens while he was working at the University of Heidelberg. Since the beginning of the exhibition series in Japan in 1995, 47 million visitors in over 121 cities in America, Europe, Asia and Africa have seen the world's most successful travelling exhibition.

The exhibition includes whole-body plastinates, a large arrangement of individual organs, arterial and organ configurations and translucent slices that give a complete picture of how the body works.

Vital tells the fascinating story of how best to fight life-threatening diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart ailments, through healthy choices and lifestyle changes.

The exhibition inspires visitors to assert themselves and claim responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.
