Look forward to...

Roaming the charming cobbled streets and exploring the old town’s traditional markets.

Exploring 15th century Baroque churches.

Shopping for new and old in the city, and snapping up a bargain at the flea market overlooking the river.

Feasting on traditional Slovenian meals and local wine in the old town.

Kayaking down the rapids of Soca, the emerald river.

Over the last few years, the incredibly beautiful and friendly capital of Slovenia has been creating a buzz as the perfect destination for a city break in Europe. Now is the ideal time to visit, before the masses get wind of it and the city becomes (whisper it) the next Prague.

the impossibly pretty city

From its candy coloured architecture, to its hilltop castle, willow shaded rivers and cobbled piazzas that play host to a vibrant café and restaurant culture, Ljubljana exudes romance and style. Spend a weekend at the Grand Hotel Union exploring the historic central market and Old Town or some of the outstanding museums and galleries, such as the National Gallery and Museum of Modern Art. For something more adventurous, take in a spot of ballooning, giving you incredible views of the city described by Conde Nast Traveller as being "Impossibly Pretty".

summer festival

ljubljana at night

Great times to visit are during the city's summer festival (throughout July and August) that celebrates music, opera, dance and street theatre in venues throughout the city or in early June during the wine fair. But in all honesty, you don't need an event as a reason to attend. The city's year round attractions are more than enough. Perhaps the best one is to escape for a weekend of style in a city before everyone else does.
