One of Europe's smallest capitals, Ljubljana is a
pleasant and manageable city. Nice for a unstressed stroll around town without having to worry about visiting the sights. A river flows through the center and the banks are lined with cafés and walkways.

Charming small European city. Not particularly popular tourist destination, which gives Ljubljana an authentic vibe. It is quiet and unassuming, but I really enjoyed it. I would definitely go back and spend another weekend here.

Beautiful and cozy little capital of the central european country, which was part of Yugoslavia in the past. Clean and homy city, slovenian people are open and friendly, are always interested in your background and are willing to help if you have any questions. During our stay in Ljubljana we stayed in Antiq hotel in the centre of old town of Ljubljana. Clean and conveniently located in the vicinity of Ljubljana castle, river quay, restaurants, cafe and shopping. Staff was friendly and in time to answer questions or concerns we had. Recommended restaurants to visit : Sokol, Zlata Ribica, Vinij dvor, Art Caffe Tivoli, Julija, Ljubljanski Dvor, Vinoteka Movia.

Ljubljana or Laibach, as it is known in German, represents a nice mixture of the Slavic and Germanic cultures. On top of it, you can also feel a Latin touch in the city. Ljubljana is a city of approximately 275.000 and is small enough to enjoy a short stay, however culturally rich enough to have you spend a week or more.
I was there in the summer and the streets were full of people enjoying the cafes, pubs and restaurants in the city center on both sides of the Ljubljanica River.
I believe that this city is beautiful and deserves much more attention then it gets.

I had a lot of fun in this city walking around and visiting the various caves and castles here. If you're in this part of the continent and have some time (and your car rental company allows you to), you should definitely stop by here.

This thumb-sized capital city is really worth the visit. You might only need a day here, but I mean that in the deepest way possible. Your soul needs a day to rest in the postcard of Ljubljana.
I was amazed at how perfectly everyone spoke English and how delicious the ice cream was. If you can find it, get Mozart flavored ice cream next to the river by one of the bridges and you won't regret it.
Speaking of the bridges, the architecture is truly amazing. You're going to want to haul your camera around and you might not even need to go into any buildings in order to see the best that the city has to offer.

The dragon city as I like to call it. There are dragon motifs everywhere in town and you'll see it at the castle, bridges, lamp posts. A sleepy capital city that is finding its way into the hearts of tourists. A venture into this Eastern European is a decision that will not be regretted.
