The Merry Day of Culture, as the campaign is termed, is organised for the 20th year in a row, bringing exhibitions, theatrical shows, guided tours, workshops etc.

The campaign has been designed to reach out to those who rarely visit cultural organisations and events.

It has become very popular, and many museums and galleries have traditionally been the busiest venues on 3 December.

In Ljubljana, permanent and temporary exhibitions at all national museums and galleries will open the door to the public free of charge.

A number of events will be organised at Ljubljana Castle, the National and University Library, Cankarjev Dom and the Theatre Museum.

Novelties in the Fran web portal which features several dozen dictionaries and Slovenian language resources will also be presented to the public.

Given that 3 December falls on a weekday this year, groups organised by schools are expected to dominate among the visitors.
