DESTINATION

Don’t be a turist.

Be a local. (Ljubljančan!)

Ljubljana the capital, Slovenia’s commercial business centre, a university town, a cultural and dynamic art scene with a Secessionist charm. But above all, it is one of the most idyllic towns in Europe*. When the weather is good, Ljubljana locals like to spend their afternoons in the numerous cafes on the river banks, where you are most welcome to join them. *Lonely Planet ranked Ljubljana second in its ranking of Best in Europe 2014.

Urban exploring

Ljubljana is a great city for everyone who likes a healthy dose of culture. If you really want to feel the city’s beat, you simply cannot miss the Triple bridge (or any other of Jože Plečnik’s creations – to dive deep into the mind and genius of Slovenia's most brilliant architect check out the house he lived in most of his life which has been transformed into a museum). Also, do not miss the Dragon bridge, and of course - last but not least – Ljubljana's mighty castle.

Art and culture

The city is full of quirky galleries and rich museums. If you are up for a stroll by the Ljubljanica river you are sure to find a bunch of them. Usually the smaller ones carry contemporary art or photography exhibitions (Vžigalica, Jakopič gallery, National gallery, City gallery). If you like something even more unique, you should check out the Slovene Ethnographic Museum, the museum “about people, for people” as they like to refer to themselves.

For the nature-lover VANDERer, the city also represents the best base to explore the green oasis that is Slovenia (70% of the country is covered in forests). Go on – let the tree huggin’ adventure begin!
