  • Ljubljana, maybe one of the cities that best preserves the imprint of a single architect, Jozef PlecniK. A bit far from the Center, the House-Museum is well set out, essential to know this architect that you can visit many buildings in the city. Visit anytime, just with accompaniment, with an expert guide and passionate. Only flaw: Okay English, but some support in Italian could lead to many tourists. Almost everywhere in Slovenia captions in museums have four languages, including Italian. Here no. Nor even very good guide could speak Italian (we were only 6, from different backgrounds ... but all Italians!). Let me call a little provincial, not quite the same follow complex explanations in a foreign language or in their own language, at least for an average Italian. That said, however, the Museum promoted with flying colors. Very interesting.

Where to stay in Ljubljana

One of Europe's smaller capitals, Ljubljana offers fairly limited sleeping options, with most of its three- and four-star hotel rooms concentrated in and around the expensive city center. Travelers on a limited budget can explore the city's hostels, which offer small rooms with access to shared restrooms and common dining areas. If you need more privacy and space, rent an apartment on the outskirts of town, or check into one of the family-run guesthouses near the city's international airport.
