The young capital in the new Europe

In the Slovene capital of Ljubljana, Central European flair mixes with southern zest for life. Even though Ljubljana, located along the Save and Ljubljanica rivers, is not one of Europe's largest capitals, it possesses a unique appeal. The city is especially lively along those rivers, where the numerous cafes, pubs, and bars seem to guarantee pleasant evenings in this lively and cheerful city. The city's young artists and galleries also lend the city a special charm; those interested in the alternative art scene should definitely visit the squatters' compound occupying the former barracks known as Metelkova. Tolerated by the city, it has enabled the development of an alternative culture in Slovenia. Anyone with a soft spot for the Middle Ages should visit the city's castle, which towers over the city center.

  • ein unentdecktes Juwel im näheren Südosten Europas!Ljubljana ist quasi leer. Wenn Ihr Orte mögt, an denen kaum Touristen unterwegs sind, ist das Euer Ort. Perfekt geeignet um von dort aus die umgebende Natur zu erschließen. Kanu, Wandern, Mountainbike, klettern... Sucht Euch was aus.
