Ljubljana

Slovenia
Ljubljana travel packages

City of Delights. A vibrant city full of surprises, Ljubljana has all the advantages of a modern capital, and small-town friendliness.

Ljubljana enjoys a central position, making it the ideal base for exploring the rest of Slovenia. A crossroads, you can see Central Europe in the city's architecture, language, and half of its cuisine and the Mediterranean and Balkans in its traditions and the other half of its delicacies. 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 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, with its interesting museum and incredible views.

What I love about Ljubljana

Travel Advisor

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.

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.
Modern Design Hotel
This centrally located hotel offers luxury and convenience in the Old Town. Expect a modern design and excellent service all worth the higher price
Modern Boutique Hotel
On the banks of the Ljubljanica River in the heart of Old Town, these are modern rooms that combine comfort and convenience.
Small Charming B&B
Free private parking and newly renovated rooms make this a very good option for value!

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 (particularly 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 include in your vacation package or consider adding later.

Without JayWay Travel, my friends and I would not have enjoyed the trip as we did. My wife and friends cannot stop talking about the trip without excitement and appreciation for my planning, for which I owe JaWay Travel. I recommend JayWay Travel to anyone and anywhere.

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Ljubljana

How can I get around Ljubljana?

Ljubljana is a small ciy and unless you need to visit somwhere outside of the city centre, you can manage easily without using public transport. Jaywalking is prohibited - you'll notice that locals waiting at crossings do not cross while the red light is showing on the traffic lights - it is dangerous and you can also get a fine. Watch out for cyclists, even on the sidewalks and the pathway along by the river.

If you need to take a cab, always check the rate before you get in. Radio cars companies usually have better rates. We provide our guests with a list of useful numbers as part of our destination info pack.

If you want to take a local bus in the city, buy an Urbana tourist card. You can get it at tourist information centers, most city street kiosks and post offices sell them as well. One journey costs 0.80 cents and allows you to change as many buses as you need withing a period of 90 minutes.

When are shops open in Ljubljana?

Normal shop opening hours in the city are from 10am-8pm Monday to Friday and until 3pm on Saturdays, although some small specialist shops such as boutiques and book stores may close for lunch. Sundays sees most shops close all day except for grocery stores. The other exception is the many open air produce and flea markets which take place from very early in the morning until around 2pm.
