Welcome to Slovenia! Being one of the smaller EU member states, Slovenia with its capital Ljubljana is a cultural cross-road of southeastern regions in Europe. Dramatically framed by the Alps mountain chain, the country blends agriculture, tourism, trade and hi-tech. Ljubljana’s universities and institutes are well-networked, and actively participate in international initiatives.
Ljublijana’s old town is situation along a river loop around a steeotypical castle hill. The streets and buildings are well-preserved and beautifully maintained. Small shops, many restaurants and beauiful alleys are waiting for discovery.
What to do
- Walk up to the castle, get on its tower, and enjoy both Ljubljana and the mountain panorama around.
Where to stay
- Use the Pri Mraku Guest House, right in the heart of the city, in walking distance to the river promenade and the castle hill. Friendly, safe, traditional old town building. Nothing for people who like concrete blocks.
Where to eat
- Anywhere on the main river promenade, which is buzzing of nightlive, street musicians, and outdoor serving.
What to bring home
- Slovenian wine or spirits.
- Leather products, such as shoes, seem rather affordable.
