Ljubljana City Reviews

    My favorite city, Ljubljana!

    Ljubljana is a magical city. It welcomes you with open arms. It is a really small town, but it has endless amounts of things to do. There are also tons of things to do outside of the city. It has turned into one of my favorite cities in the world!

    Insider Tip:Extend your stay and go to Lake Bled for a night!

    Quick visit

    We mostly visited to go to the skocjan caves, so we only had 1 full day at Ljubljana. But it was enough. Walking around the bridges is nice and the view point on top of the castle tower is stunning.

    Insider Tip:The skocjan caves are awesome.

    Ljubliana is beautiful!

    Small city, but everything is in walking distance and there's plenty going on, including at night! Everything is very cheap, and in the 3 days we were there, we were never at a loss for things to do.

    Insider Tip:Try the free tour that goes every day at 11am, from the pink church in Preseren square. Great way to get to know the city better from people that live there! Very interesting!

    I love Ljubljana

    This city is really beautiful. It's very small, so it's easy to see all the major attractions in a day, even on foot. My only complaint is that it was a lot easier to find a beer menu than a breakfast/food menu at 11am, but I probably just didn't know what I was doing. There were all kinds of interesting trinkets (e.g., for gifts) for sale at the street market.

    Insider Tip:The pass for the museum & tower at the castle is only 5euro for students. The museum is small but very interesting, and the view from the top of the tower is amazing. Theres an elevator to the castle but the hike up the hill isnt long or very difficult and its a pleasant walk. The only thing is to be careful if its been raining because parts of the path can be slippery with mud (youre fine if you wear good shoes). Also the art installations under the castle are *excellent* even if youre not "into" art.
