  • The river is lined with cafes and bars, and thus pretty every time I came to feel the small ships carry around Ljubljana. Being a moderately long river ride, even to go to the city outskirts of Ljubljana in this river, it was nice to meet you. The intensity of the lighting is turned on at night for good.

  • You should not expect a big river like the Han River. Just as both sides of the River, you can see the city, arranged across the bridge, the river having legs also fun to watch every trait. Operating in a variety of cruise companies, and from the river.

  • The Ljubljanica River is the ultimate symbol of the capital city of Slovenia. Walking along its coasts are just interesting because offer magnificent views of Ljubljana. From Preseren square until there are a lot of bars and restaurants and Breg tanta gente. After Breg starts the less touristy, but very charming. It is worth spending a few hour to do the whole walk.

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.
