Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Get outdoors at Lake Bled and Parasailing & Paragliding. Kids will enjoy ZOO Ljubljana and House of Illusions. Change things up with these side-trips from Ljubljana: Bled (Straza Bled & Vintgar Gorge), Velenje beach (in Velenje) and Postojna Cave (in Postojna). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Minicity Ljubljana, stroll the grounds of Preseren's Grove, get engrossed in the history at Museum of Puppetry, and explore the engaging exhibits at House of Experiments - Hisa eksperimentov.

Plan my Ljubljana trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
