Throughout the year, an extraordinary culinary offer, exhibitions about Ljubljana and Slovenia and special experiences are available to get the feeling of the medieval story of the fortress. Legend has it that Ljubljana was founded by Jason, the hero of Greek mythology who stole the golden fleece from King Aeëtes and then fled aboard the Argo with his comrades, known as the Argonauts, across the Black Sea and up the Danube and the Sava until they reached the Ljubljanica. There they dismantled their ship in order to carry it overland to the Adriatic coast, where they rebuilt it and set sail back to Greece. Before Jason and the Argonauts reached the source of the Ljubljanica, they came across a great lake and, next to it, a marsh, where Jason encountered a terrible monster, which he fought and killed. That monster was the Ljubljana dragon, which today lives atop the castle tower on the Ljubljana coat of arms.
