Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is a beautiful small city situated on the river Ljubljanica that flows between the city centre and the castle hill above. Its river banks are filled with great restaurants, and chic bars popular with visitors and locals alike. The town boasts the most relaxing atmosphere of all European capitals and offers endless cultural events and excellent quality of life. Ljubljana is a relatively small place, so soon you may feel like taking a day trip.
- Some say it is the cutest capital in Europe. Some compare it to Prague, others to Paris, third to Venice, then again some may say it is incomparible to any of the mentioned. Ljubljana is unique. It stores 5000 years of history, some of it in traces and some of it in the most luxurious and confident manner. Imagine a colourful baroque with medieval base escorted with Roman remains and followed by eternal Art Nouveau and Plecnik`s masterpieces. That`s Ljubljana that awaits to be discovered.
- Slovenia's cultural centre. Many international events that take place there such as the film festival, theatre, various exhibitions and concerts are organised with an English speaking audience in mind.
We have a delicate tongue for good food, and be sure that in Ljubljana you will find a variety of quality food available, from traditional Balkan fare to international cuisine at affordable prices.
