The landmarks, among others, include the Triple Bridge, Congress Square, and Žale Cemetery, with the exception of the Bežigrad Stadium. Slovenia submitted the bid in January last year after an earlier joint bid with the Czech Republic was abandoned.

Slovenia already has four entries in the World Heritage List - ancient and primeval beech forests of the Carpathians, heritage of mercury in Idrija, prehistoric pile dwellings around the Alps, and the Škocjan Caves.
