Slovenia: Ljubljana

DSC00295Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is such a lovely city! I didn’t have any expectations to the city, but its beauty overwhelmed me. The old town is adorable, with dozens of cafés, bars and restaurants. There are no famous attractions in Ljubljana – but there are a few you should check out. One of them is The Dragon Bridge – an old bridge with dragon statues, which was built more than 100 years ago. Another attraction is Ljubljana Castle, which offers a great view of the city.

I really liked Ljubljana – the city has a special atmosphere and walking around in the old town is so nice. Sadly we only had a few hours in Ljubljana this time, but I know I will be back!

Shopping

Our luggage was late when we arrived in Slovenia, so we had to do some shopping in Ljubljana before we started our road trip. We went to a huge mall (more than 450 stores) called BTC, which is recommended if you want to go shopping – you can find everything here. It is located outside the city center, and you will need a lot of time here, because it is so big.

Eat in Ljubljana:
We only ate one meal in Ljubljana – dinner at a restaurant called Julija. With a perfect location in the old town and great Italian food (no pizza – but delicious pasta, meat and desserts) – I can recommend this one!

This is my last blog post from Slovenia. My trip to Slovenia has been amazing. Actually, I loved the country so much that it now is one of my favorite countries in Europe! I came home a month ago, and I have spend July at work. But now it is time to travel again, and this time I am going to Italy!

  1. En nydelig by! Maten så himmelsk god ut også 😀 Så gøy at du likte Slovenia så godt! Jeg tror landet har den effekten på de som har muligheten til å se en del av det. Jeg ble også helt frelst 😉

    Det høres spennende ut med de nye reisene dine til både Italia og Kypros! Sistnevnte har jeg også svært lyst å ta turen til. God reise!

  2. Ser helt nydelig ut! Jeg kom faktisk på en fun fact da du nevnte den pizzaløse italienske restauranten! Visste du at det er faktisk normalt for skikkelige italienske restauranter å ikke servere pizza faktisk? Jeg lærte det nylig, at pizza var egentlig mer lunchmat for arbeiderne, og å spørre etter det i en fin restaurant er fornærmende for italienerne! Men selvfølgelig nå er det blitt så komersielt og forventet av turister at de fleste restauranter har det på menyen sin disse dager.

    • Såppas, det visste jeg ikke! Jeg har funnet ut (etter min siste tur til Italia) at de fleste som serverer pizza heter pizzeria og ikke restaurant… Godt å vite! 😀 Denne restauranten i Slovenia var dog sortert under “pizza” på Tripadvisor – derfor jeg ble litt overrasket, hehe 🙂
