Welcome to Ljubljana
Holidays to Ljubijana are enjoyed in a charming city bursting with magnificent architecture with a laid-back Mediterranean vibe. The captivating old town, overlooked by the enchanting castle is picturesque and atmospheric.
The Ljubljanica river runs through the centre of Ljubljana’s old town, criss-crossed by a series of pedestrian bridges. The bridges chart Ljubljana’s rich architectural heritage, the sculptures on the art nouveau dragon bridge evoking the beast which was once said to have ruled the Ljubljana marshes. The triple bridge is perhaps one of the city’s best known landmarks, designed by the famous architect Plecnik in 1929. The most recent addition is Butchers’ bridge, opened in 2010, which is adorned by padlocks left here by romantic couples.
The riverside cafes are the perfect place to watch the world go by and simply soak up the atmosphere. The old town is a pedestrian zone, making it ideal for meandering walks, exploring the narrow streets and attractive piazzas. There are some excellent restaurants serving mouth-watering local Slovenian and Mediterranean specialities.
