Court House Palace

The Court House Palace (Slovene: Sodna palača) is a former palace in central Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It has served for many years as the seat of various Courts of Law for central Slovenia.
The palace was built after the Ljubljana earthquake in 1895 and it was renovated in the early 1950s. In the late 1940s, the palace was used for the show trials against opponents of the Yugoslav Titoist regime in the Socialist Republic of Slovenia. The most famous were the so-called Rožman trial in 1945, the Nagode trial in 1946 and the Dachau Trials in 1947.
The palace underwent a vast renovation in 2007 and 2008. In 2008, the Slovenian Minister of Justice Lovro Šturm announced that in three years time most of the courts of law housed in the palace will move to a newly built building near the Ljubljana railway station .
