River Ljubljanica Kanal, Ljubljana
(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. The canal follows the U-shaped route dividing the Old Town from the newer parts and curving around the hill with the city castle perched on top of it. Alternatively, stroll the paved path along the canal, lined with cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, and boutiques. Have some mulled wine on a boat or grab a scoop of gelato and watch for wild otters splashing around in the water.

  • Walk along the Lublianica River that runs through the town, with its cafes, restaurants creates a magical atmosphere especially at night with all the lights that light up. Is it possible to make a boat trip.

  • I live in the neighbourhood, but I mustz say, the banks of Ljubljanica river are nicer and nicer, Municipality realy cares! 
  • We were fortunate the weather was lovely and we enjoyed our relaxing trip down the river. It gives you a totally different perspective of the town from the water.
