Ljubljana is the capital and largest city of Slovenia.
Located at the middle of a trade route between the northern Adriatic Sea and the Danube region, it was the historical capital of Carniola, a Slovene-inhabited part of Austria-Hungary, and it has been the cultural, educational, economic, political, and administrative center of independent Slovenia since 1991. Its central geographic location within Slovenia, transport connections, concentration of industry, scientific and research institutions and cultural tradition are contributing factors to its leading position.
The hosting submissions for the pre-qualification round started on 1 March 2015 and ended one day later, on 2 March 2015. Nine countries applied to host the event this time.
