Ljubljana City Reviews

    Beautiful old city

    I loved Ljubljana, such a beautiful city. Being so small it has a very chilled and friendly vibe, and I was amazed that most people there (and in Slovenia generally) speak English. I didn't bother with the castle (once you've seen a castle you've seen a castle), but it's worth checking out the markets (everyday but Sunday) and, if you're into street art and graffiti, the student area. The city is very walkable, too.

    Insider Tip:The free walking tour is a great way to get to know and see all the sights of the city.

    Ljubljana is a great city; very clean with large wide roads. The locals I met were all very friendly and took me to some really cool places within the city. The atmosphere feels very mellow and peaceful in this city and you get a great view of the mountains!

    Insider Tip:Go to metelkova

    An undiscovered jewel

    I haven't heard much about Ljubljana before i go there, so i just take a leap of faith to go there without doing any research, and i am glad that i went there, it is a beautiful city with stunning nature just about 1 and half hour bus ride from the city center!

    Insider Tip:Visit the Bled lake and don't miss out Bohinj too! Careful of those people who ask you for money at the bus/train station, don't believe so much on their stories.

    Maybe the most welcoming place

    Hot wine, smily people, science-based christmas decoration, fair prices, clean and tidy, all within a walkong distance. Ridiculously close to other places like Zagreb, Bled, Trieste,Maribor etc. Easy going and helpful people, a small thank you to every local that helped us so much!

    My favorite city.

    I feel in love with this city and country. One of the most creative and egalitarian places I've ever been. Every one is so friendly and well educated. I can't wait to return.

    Insider Tip:Lots of food in the city center is pricey. It is possible to find more affordable option, but you'd have to ask locals.
