Trojane (pronounced  [tɾɔˈjaːnɛ] ; Latin : Atrans , German : Trojana [2] ) is a settlement in the Municipality of Lukovica in central Slovenia. [3] It lies in the northern part of the Sava Hills, on a hill near the border of two Slovene regions, Carniola and Styria. Until the freeway was finished in 2005, Trojane was on the main route from Ljubljana to Maribor.

History

The Romans built a road on the route connecting Aquileia, Emona, Atrans, and Celeia. Trojane was an important way station, military post, and marketplace, and the town was surrounded by a defensive wall.

The archaeological remains of Atrans can be still seen in Trojane. In the Roman Empire, Trojane (Atrans) was on the border between Italy and the province of Noricum.

Emona

Emona or Aemona was a Roman castrum, located in the area where the navigable Ljubljanica river came closest to Castle Hill, serving the trade between the city's settlers – colonists from the northern part of Roman Italy – and the rest of the empire. Emona was the region's easternmost city, although it was assumed formerly that it was part of the Pannonia or Illyricum, but archaeological findings from 2008 proved otherwise. From the late 4th to the late 6th century, Emona was the seat of a bishopric that had intensive contacts with the ecclesiastical circle of Milan, reflected in the architecture of the early Christian complex along Erjavec Street in present-day Ljubljana.

Atrans is the Roman name for Trojane, a town in Central Slovenia. It was on the border between Italy and the province of Noricum.
