    My Favourite City

    Love this city, great vibes around main square and the buildings are beautiful, very happening and alternative city. Would live here if I could.

    Insider Tip:Go to the theatre near McDonalds, they sell small time plays for cheap prices and it's a lot of fun!

    Small, but worthy visiting

    Ljubljana is quite small, but is a really beautiful place! Be sure to check Metelkova! Either during the day, were you can get great pictures, either in the night, when the clubs are open and they are awesome as f.

    Really Cool, Underrated City

    Didn't know what to expect before visiting Ljubljana, but ended up really enjoying the cool, laid-back vibes here. The city is on the smaller side, which I like because even in a shorter number of days you can still get a feel for the city and its personality. I loved buying some fresh foods from the market and enjoying them by the river, walking around the city, and just exploring the shops and cafes. There is also a ton of cool street art and graffiti that can be found everywhere in the city.

    Insider Tip:Try the horseburger at Hot Horse, it's their local drunk food!

    A town which has been overlooked

    I think people overlooked this city because there are more popular and famous cities in Europe. However, during our trip, Ljubljana is the city we liked the best. Small and peaceful, not so many tourists around, walking distance to everywhere in the city. There are not really any tourists attractions like other places, but the atmosphere there itself is an attraction. We love the feeling, it's like we were brought back to the Middle Age time. People spoke English well and were super friendly.

    Insider Tip:There is an Outdoor Food Market every Friday and the town Market Square. Go to Ljubljana on Friday if you want restaurant-quality food with a decent price. It's a great experience thou, we got to eat outdoor, talked to a lot of local buyers and listen to them explaining about their cuisines. There were tons of local at the food market and it's a great opportunity to blend with the locals if you'd like.

    Great town for a few days!

    Great town to walk around and explore. It seems to have a lot of students, so there is a fun atmosphere and it feels very safe. It is clean, people are friendly, interesting sights, good food. Be sure to check out the food market on weekends - great food, beer, and wine all in an outdoor "beer-garden" type of area.

    Insider Tip:Research travel dates for local festivals and activities ahead of time. Check out the night food market.
