在某种程度上，它是一个成为的空间 – 城市展示了它努力实现什么样的未来的空间。在六十年代，它被扩大，并变成一个四车道的道路，越来越多的交通流经城市的中心。在那些时代，交通被视为活力的标志 – 交通更加激烈，城市生机勃勃。通过逐步扩大和适应汽车，很快就变得清楚，汽车的需求永远不能完全满意。通过执行严格一致的交通政策和建设汽车交通的替代路线，城市终于实现了在2012年关闭斯洛文尼亚街汽车交通的正确条件。
During the last ten years Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, has transformed itself from a sleepy post-socialist town into a contemporary European city, and an ever more popular tourist destination. The main street of the city is the Slovenska street, which crosses the city in the north-south direction. The street was always a place of urban progress: here the first skyscraper was constructed, the first modernistic housing block… It is also the stage for many important events in the city, such as the marathon and the annual cycling race, various demonstrations, and the record-breaking square dance of the city’s high-school graduates.
In a way, it is a space of becoming – a space where the city demonstrates towards what kind of future it strives. In the sixties it was widened and transformed into a four-lane roadway, and more and more traffic flowed through the centre of the city. In those times, traffic was seen as a sign of vitality – the more intense the traffic, the livelier the city. Through gradual expansion and accommodation of cars it soon became clear that the needs of the car can never be fully satisfied. Through executing strict and consistent traffic policy and building alternative routes for car traffic the city finally achieved the right conditions to close the Slovenska street for car traffic in 2012.
