Where Europe meets the Balkans, there’s Ljubljana! If you’re looking for a destination with a north European cosmopolitan aura and a Balkan budget-friendly character, then you should definitely think of booking cheap air tickets to Ljubljana. Slovenia’s capital is just as small and just as large as you would want it to be. You can find everything, from museums, galleries, historical and cultural sights to world class restaurants, a vibrant nightlife and as many green spaces as you can take! Book your cheap accommodation in Ljubljana and have the time of your life – you’ll be surprised!
Many say that Ljubljana is a north European city with Balkan people. This relatively young European capital – Slovenia became a EU member in 2004 – has nothing to be jealous of the greatest European travel destinations, while at the same time keeping it authentic and real.
Ljubljana’s symbol is the dragon, as you’ll notice from the dragon statues spread all over the city!With a population of 300,000, Ljubljana is a favourite spot of artists and students that bring to the city the latest trends in art and entertainment. All, with the fantastic backdrop of River Ljubljanica, parks with lush vegetation and elegant baroque, art nouveau and renaissance architecture. If by now you’re yet to be convinced to visit Ljubljana, know that the city hosts more than 10,000 art performances annually!
Ljubljana’s international airport (Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport) is located 24 kilometres northwest of the city and can be reached by airport buses.
Getting around Ljubljana
Ljubljana’s public transportation system consists solely of buses. There is no tram or metro, however the 26 bus lines can take you everywhere. The city is very walkable and you can always do as the locals do and rent a bike.
Ljubljana’s medieval castle is surely one of the sights you would prefer to visit first. Follow the path through a lush forest with marvelous trees and picturesque footbridges that leads to the castle gate. The way up is not steep, but if you’re not into hiking, you can always catch the funicular to the top of castle hill.
Inside the castle you can visit some of the temporary art exhibitions that are usually hosted and, after you have drunk your coffee at the terrain, admired the panoramic view and taken all the pictures you can, head down to the city centre, where Ljubljana’s heart beats.
Walk across River Ljubljanica, cross one of the many bridges and relax gazing at the river, before you continue to the Congress Square, one of Ljubljana’s three main squares.
Congress Square is a very important historic landmark and stands as a symbol of Slovenia’s independence and liberation from the Austro-Hungarian rule.Ljubljana’s major point of interest is the city itself, so take your time strolling around its cobbled streets, meeting with the locals and people-watching in one of the city’s many cafes by the river. But do try to visit one or two of Ljubljana’s museums.
Highlights are the Natural History and the Modern Art Museums, while you should not miss the Academy of Music of the University of Ljubljana, a major conservatory and seat of the historic Music School of the Slovene Philharmonic Society, dating back to 1821!
Next stop is Park Tivoli, an enormous piece of green land just a few steps from the city centre. You can walk, work out, have a picnic, or admire masterpieces of modern art, regularly exhibited at the park’s west end.When the sun sets, you can pick one of the river’s cafes, bars and restaurants or, to see something different, you can visit Metelkova. This self-declared autonomous region of Ljubljana was founded in 1993 and it features many galleries, art spaces, studios and seven bars and nightclubs, housed in an old military complex.
Slovenian is Ljubljana’s official language. English is spoken too, but locals would surely appreciate some basic communication in their language, so you could use a Slovenian phrasebook!
