From 19th Century
Slon hotel has its origin in the mid 19th Century (1856 and 1858 ) when a new hotel building was built.
The Hotel in that period was renowned for its baths, which were visited by numerous wealthy citizens of Ljubljana. The building survived for 80 years; it even survived the powerful 1895 earthquake.
But, in 1937, the construction of the new Hotel Slon began by its then owner Mr. Koritnik, in accordance with the modernist architecture fashion of the 1930s. Crowds of local people came to the construction site to observe the new hotel growing before their eyes. When completed, it was said to be the most beautiful and the most modern hotel in Ljubljana.
