What to see in Ljubljana?

Post author:

Ljubljana is Slovenia’s capital and largest city. It’s known for its university population and green spaces, including Tivoli Park. Ljubljanica River, lined in outdoor cafes, divides the city’s old town from its commercial hub. Ljubljana has many museums, including the National Museum of Slovenia, displaying historic exhibitions, and the Museum of Modern Art, home to 20th-century Slovene paintings and sculptures.


The city is modern and compact and a city with a relaxed atmosphere. The architecture is a beautiful harmonic blend of baroque, art nouveau and later architecture. It is also a green city with various parks and forest areas in the center.


The best thing in Ljubljana is strolling along the river that flows through the city. So you can sniff out the atmosphere of the city! There are terraces and restaurants everywhere along the river.

Every city now has a love bridge where you can hang clasps. In this city this is possible at the shoe makers bridge. It gives the bridge a different dimension and it really is full of clasps. In addition to the usual small locks, there are also several large bicycle locks on this bridge.


The name Tromostovje also literally means a bridge that is made up of three parts.These unique three bridges of Ljubljana are nice to take a look at.

Nestled within the rolling hills, Tivoli City Park is one of the most beautiful and the largest park of Ljubljana. Situated on the northern outskirts of the central district, the park is fine mixture of pasture, woods, playgrounds and lawns. The best way to take pleasure of the park is to participate in the various activities. The playground is a favorite place for adults and kids alike. Activities like ice skating, tennis, swimming, golfing and basketball can be enjoyed over here.


Find the dragon of Ljubljana. The symbol of the city is a dragon and at different places in Ljubljana you can see images of dragons. It is nice to pay extra attention to this. Also in the souvenir shops they sell various things with a dragon on it. There are several legends about the dragon and I have no idea why this has become the symbol of the city.

Surrounded with woods and meadow this zoo is as an ideal destination to spend a nice weekend outing with kids.  Its pleasant surrounding makes you take a walking tour within the rich flora and fauna of this zoo. You can participate in some interactive activities like animal feeding sessions by joining the zookeepers group.


Metelkova in Ljubljana is a hip artists’ district full of street art, cool shops, small bars and it is the place for good parties. Metelkova is a neighborhood where you definitely have to walk through!
