10 Things to Do in Ljubljana That You Shouldn't Miss

February 26, 2018 Lean Nau

Slovenia, wedged between Austria and Italy, has always been proud of its unique heritage. The capital, Ljubljana, is a perfect example of this blend of German, Mediterranean, and Slovenian culture. The old town is a blend of Baroque, Renaissance, and Art Nouveau buildings, watched over by a medieval castle. Cut through the gardens of Tivoli Park to the National Museum of Contemporary History for a history of modern Slovenia, featuring crumbled statues of Stalin and a recreation of a WWI trench.

Reviewed By ntflady - San Marcos, California

This Cathedral is stunning on the outside and inside and the main door entering the Cathedral is a work of art. I know people probably get tired of "another church" but please give this one a look.

Triple Bridge (Tromostovje)

Reviewed By Thebates22

Located in the heart of LJ’s old town district the triple bridge provides a beautiful and free attraction to visit Which connects the historical, medieval, town on one side with the modern city of Ljubljana on the other.
The original wooden bridge built in 1280 was replaced over the years and appeared in its current 3 bridge format on 1932. The Slovenian government must be commended on the state of repair (perfect) of this iconic landmark.

River Ljubljanica Kanal

Reviewed By tinylass - Sheffield, United Kingdom

We took a boat trip down the river which went one way then turned round and went back up the other way and it was nice to see the lights from lower down as being Christmas, there were fairy lights on everything! Very pretty river and I imagine it would also be lovely in Summer with the willow trees hanging down.
