The Lovely City Of Ljubljana

Looking down the Ljubljanica river in Ljubljana

Good things come in small packages, and nowhere is this more true than the delightful city of Ljubljana. With a population of under 300,000 and one of the prettiest riversides in Europe, the Slovene capital is perfect for wandering. It has a vibrant cultural scene, some fantastic restaurants and is small enough to walk pretty much anywhere.

Highlights include a stroll down the Ljubljanica River, a trip on the funicular to Ljubljana Castle and seeing the rather curious Triple Bridge, pictured above. But my personal highlight was seeing the Roman ruins of Emona – the remains of a settlement established in 14AD. Having spent a few days there back in 2013, it’s definitely on my holiday hit list to go back.

      Oooh. Just Ljubljana or elsewhere too? Definitely try going to Postonja Cave and Predjama Castle too! I gather Lake Bled is absolutely beautiful but not been there yet.
