Take a relaxing 30-minute boat ride down River Ljubljanica Kanal and see the city's famous buildings, sculptures, and bridges from a different perspective.

Alternatively, stroll the paved path along the canal, lined with cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, and boutiques.

  • The river Liublianica flows through the city of great bend, though skirted the castle on the Hill. Not turning away from the town, is its attraction. Numerous bridges-each in a different style and a different size-are also an attraction. The boulevards are poured out gardens, the river is also the largest central market. I really like the butcher's bridge, made of glass, with a few large statues and thousands of padlocks hung there by lovers. What step-attraction. We felt not to water in the channel-the river stink. We admired, rather, that it is extremely clean. On sail boats and ducks. Nice and romantic.

  • My personal opinion is that Ljubljana is the best to visit during April/May when its still not too hot! I was so lucky to visit it in March and it was warm enough. River gives the city a special touch...  more »
  • To the arrival of the beautiful days, walking around on the banks of the Ljubljanica is something extremely pleasant. Its multiple coffee shops will allow you to take a break during your trip. Cruises are also held on the River (between 5 and 10 € per hour)
