Ljubljana, with a population of about 280,000, is a small yet stylish city of arts & culture, history and gastronomy, offering a blend of old charm and new cool.
It is a delightfully compact and logistically stress-free destination, with an atmosphere that is both Central European and Mediterranean, where almost everything is within walking distance. The city’s image is marked by a medieval hilltop castle and a river crossing the Old Town. Those who know it better would add Ljubljana is safe, green, multilingual and hospitable. It also represents an ideal departure point to reach many of Slovenia’s attractions offering a vast diversity of experiences within one hours’ drive. Most visitors would choose among the breathtaking Lake Bled, the magnificent underground world of the Karst with the Postojna Caves or the enchanting Slovenian coast with the medieval town of Piran.
