Rome, Berlin, London - some cities are almost always on people’s travel destination lists. And then there are cities which are genuine hidden gems. This is true of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. With its lively cafes, Venetian flair and virtually car-free city centre, the university city is the perfect travel destination for all those who are seeking the holy grail of city, countryside and river.
Ljubljana is Slovenia’s largest city and was selected as the European Green Capital in 2016. The emerald-green Ljubljanica winds its way through the city’s sights, its banks playing host to the charms of city life. Freely translated, Ljubljana means ‘loved city’, and with good reason. If you’re visiting the city for the first time, it’s a good idea to plan a few things to do in Ljubljana.
Ljubljana’s sights are ideal for exploring on foot, and won’t wear your feet out. Wherever you walk, the city serves up impressive architectural highlights, secret spots and natural wonders.
If you thought that combining a nature holiday with a city break was a contradiction in terms, a trip to Ljubljana will make you think again. Several of the most beautiful parks and most spectacular natural treasures are situated in the vicinity of the university city.
All roads lead to Rome, and many lead over the Ljubljanica. Perhaps the most picturesque of them all is the Tromostovje Triple Bridge, the most photographed Dragon Bridge, and the best view can be found by sitting in one of the cafes that line the riverbank.
