River Ljubljanica Kanal, Ljubljana

(4.4/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Takes a clue from Amsterdam but its just one kind. Most importantly has all the flavour of love. Walking from Central. 
  • Through the heart of Ljubljana flows this beautiful river. Walking alongside and enjoying the sorroundings is a must when visiting this wonderful city. 
  • The channel provides Ljubljana's old town, alone of the many small bridges because of its very own character.
