Perfect for walking around and enjoying the views. You can sit in a bar next to the river and have yourself a cake at Zvezda bar, where you can get the best cake you can find in Ljubljana (guaranteed by the local). If you have more time, there is a lot of stuff to see. Do not miss a castle... More

The best place to just walk and enjoy shops. There are not a ton of things to see but what it does offer is the best tastes, and sites of old Europe.

The Old town is very much like the other city centres in Eastern Europe. full of bars, restaurants. People speak excellent English and friendly and funny. The vehicular railway to the castle is more than worth a visit and gives great views of the city. Food is similar across most restaurants with deep friend specialities being a common theme. It...

A nice place to pass your time in the lovely bars, restaurants, or pizza place. And all on foot no cars as its all pedestrian zone in the center. Very reasonable prices even the top places are good value. Most people simply get the bus in.

As part of my tour, I drove from Venice to Ljubljana and then Austria. I stayed 2 days at Ljubljana (old town) and enjoyed the history , art and culture provided. The dragon myth and dancing with Gypsies at the old square is one of the most fabulous experiences so far! I also enjoyed the typical roasted pork with fruits... More

I was so pleasantly surprised by Ljubljanas old town! It's really a must see if you are within a 2 or 3 hour drive. One of my most favorite towns in Europe is Salzburg, Austria and this is very much like it. The old town is a pedestrian zone and closed to vehicles which makes for a wonderful day of... More

We just love Ljubljana! It's a great city to travel and stay, very safe, family friendly, city of pedestrians and cyclists! It does not matter how you travel: alone, in a couple, or with children! Ljubljana is the place to go!
