Ljubljana Sights

Ljubljana enjoys a central position which makes it the ideal base for exploring the rest of Slovenia. It is a cultural crossroads due to its location. On one hand you can see Central Europe in the architecture and language of Ljubljana. On the other hand there is a strong Mediterranean and Balkan influence in Ljubljana. You can see this in the city's cafe culture. People are often surprised how westernized and advanced Slovenia is. It's more in a class with its Austrian neighbors than its Eastern European counterparts.

Ljubljana Tourism

Ljubljana is packed with natural beauty. There are also cultural sights that bear witness to the city's dynamic history. There is a diverse range of restaurants to satisfy culinary desires too. The local cuisine is heavily influenced by its neighbors in all directions. Wine lovers will find Slovenia to be a hidden gem. One of the best ways to get to know Ljubljana and Slovenian cuisine at the same time is on a food tour. You can enjoy dishes from the whole country while walking around the center. Ljubljana is very tourist friendly. The Old Town has an ever-expanding pedestrian zone. One great way to see Ljubljana is by bike. You can take advantage of the numerous bike lanes across the city. Also don't miss the castle that looms above Ljubljana. It has an interesting museum and incredible views.

Where to stay in Ljubljana

Central Ljubljana is very compact and all the accommodation choices we offer are located within it. The possibilities range from friendly small B&Bs to design and boutique 4 and 5 star hotels. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.

Things to do in Ljubljana

The must-see sights of the city itself are all located in the Old Town, and the castle that towers over the city is a great place to start. Stretch your legs and walk up the path that zig zags up the hill or take it easy and use the funicular. Situated in the center of the country, Ljubljana is the ideal base for striking out and seeing more of the country. If you're planning on renting a car then most out-of-city destinations are easy day trips on your own but if you prefer the support of a local guide (particuarly in the case of the wine tour!) we've got you covered. The most popular day trip from Ljubljana, even for locals, is to Lake Bled but you could also head to the Venetian era seaside town of Piran if you're not also visiting the Croatian coast during your trip. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to included in your vacation package or consider for adding later.

What I love about Ljubljana...

“You wouldn't know Ljubljana is the capital city of Slovenia by its quaint streets, canals and friendly locals, however this town does not fail to disappoint. Top rated restaurants, busy nightlife and beautifully lit streets, I would definitely recommend spending a few days in Ljubljana to take in everything that the capital has to offer.”
