The atmosphere in the old city is friendly and relaxed.
You will walk for hours admiring baroque Palaces, churches and fluid architecture of the 20th century.
The National Museum of Slovenia, and the Museum of Contemporary Art are places to discover Slovenian artists, where you will never see somewhere else as very few of them have received international recognition.
The modern identity of Ljubljana was largely influenced by Jože Plečnik, a major Slovene architect.
He designed the Triple Bridge, the embankments along the River, the open market buildings, the National Library, the cemetery, and many other buildings all around the city.
His influence on Ljubljana has been compared to that of Gaudi’s on Barcelona or Palladio in Vicenza, Italy.
The castle overlooking the city is a unique place to admire the intertwining of narrow streets, and steeples of churches.
Excellent hotels, restaurants, trendy bars and classy cafes have flourished in recent years.
