GREETINGS FROM SLOVENIA
WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO?
A very difficult word to say (lyoo-BLYAH-nah) and an even harder city to leave. Slovenia’s capital is the cutest city in Europe and it’s not just the pastel-painted buildings that make it colourful. Ljubljana is the EU’s green capital and you’ll spot why with its multiple recycling systems, pedestrianised city centre, and love of bikes.
Ljubljana was hipster before lumberjack beards were a thing. Here is our guide of what to do, where to stay, and where to eat in Ljubljana.
Although Slovenia is certainly a city you can spend a couple of days in you will want to leave to hike, drink wine and visit the natural wonders like the caves and gorges. Find out more about day trips from Ljubljana here.
