Alexander Lombardini (1851 – 1897) was an important nationalist, historian, lawyer and archivist (keeper of records) from Žilina. He wrote "A Brief History of the Free town of Žilina" published in 1874. The 75-page book aroused great interest immediately after publication and is still quoted as it originates from authentic municipal documents.
A. Lombardini wrote the book in Slovak and so created the first written Slovak history of the town. Lombardini was therefore the first propagator of Žilina, which is why he guides this tour of the history and sights of the town.
