13th Znanstival science festival occupying Ljubljana

Ljubljana – The House of Experiments is hosting the 13th Znanstival, a festival promoting science, education and critical thinking, which will occupy the streets, squares and bridges of Ljubljana from Friday to Sunday to turn the capital in “one of the largest science centres in the world.”

As part of the festival, a number of scientific shows and workshops will take place in and around Ljubljana, also featuring international guests from all over the world, in addition to performers from the House of Experiments.

Apart from the centre of the capital, the event will this year also visit the nearby towns of Polhov Gradec, Medvode, Zalog and Grosuplje, as a “bus full of experiments” will stop there for one hour and open its doors to visitors.

Today’s opening event is taking place in Prešeren Square, presenting the guests and their activities to make it easier for visitors to decide which show or scientific workshop to see first. The three-day programme is available at www.znanstival.si.

Interactive experiments will also take place – on Saturday, a “scientific adventure” called Busology will be held in a city bus that will travel around Ljubljana. The entry and exit station is the Dragon Bridge in the city centre.

A series of interactive presentations, called The Garden of Experiments, will also take place on Saturday and Sunday, featuring a selection of institutions that promote science and education.

The House of Experiments in Trubarjeva Street will also open its doors free of charge for a limited number of visitors.
