Ljubljana Holds Off Turbo-Capitalism

Unlike a number of Eastern European capitals, Slovenia's thriving Ljubljana steered clear of Soviet-era urban models. The city owes a debt to the independent spirit of its artists and architects, who began reinventing it while it was still under Austro-Hungarian rule. Thanks to the city's small size and Tito's unwillingness to yield to monolithic models, today's Ljubljana remains among the most vibrant examples of the evolution of European modernism.
