Strolling the streets of Ljubljana

The Slovenian capital of Ljubljana is truly one of the best-kept secrets in the world of travel.

Lovely architecture, great walking, tons of lively bars and cafes along the banks of the Ljubljanica River and very reasonable prices - all within a few hours of Venice. Innsbruck, Munich and Zagreb.

Eight years on from my last visit, it remains charming and accessible.

The people are super-friendly and all appear to be impressively multi-lingual, perhaps not surprising given the city's storied history.

Ljubljana[is the capital and largest city of Slovenia, which became independent in 1991. It has a population of just over 250,000.

It is the country's cultural, educational, economic, political and administrative centre and is easy to walk around. The Old Quarter is the best base for visitors.

The city is known for its university population and green spaces, including expansive Tivoli Park and the calm Ljubljanica River, lined with outdoor cafes.

Here are a few images from last night's walk around town.


For visitors on a tight budget, I can recommend the AI Apartments, booked through Airbnb. See

For a small, centrally-situated boutique hotel, the Hotel Mrak in the heart of the old town fits the bill.
