One of the smallest countries in Europe, Slovenia more than justifies the ‘Europe in Miniature’ hype. The Republic of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps face the Pannonian plains and the Mediterranean meets the mysterious Karst. As a small picturesque country, Slovenia makes a great tourist destination. You can ski in the morning and surrender yourself to the luxury of the Adriatic Sea in the afternoon.

Ljubljana

Ljubljana is the small yet lively capital of Slovenia, where it seems there is always something going on whether it is a festival, street entertainment or live music. With it’s picturesque hilltop castle and stunning blend of Baroque and Habsburg architecture, you can’t help but be enchanted by this fascinating city.

Ljubljana with about 276,000 inhabitants is considered a city which suits everyone from its inhabitants to its numerous visitors as well. Despite the fact that it ranks among the middle sized European cities, it maintains the friendliness of a small town and at the same time possesses all the characteristics of a metropolis.

Here, at the meeting point of the cultures of the east and the west, the old interlaces in harmony with the new. In Ljubljana the remainders of all the five millenniums of its history are preserved, among these is the legacy of the Roman town of Emona and the Old Town with its medieval castle, Reneissance and Baroque facades, ornamented portals and uneven roofs. The mosaic is complemented with the bridges over the Ljubljanica River and the vast Tivoli Park which stretches into the very centre of the city. The Ljubljanica River is lined with restaurants and bars and is a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The atmosphere here at night is simply magical. The Old Town (Staro Mesto in Slovenian) is characterised by narrow cobbled streets and beautiful Baroque architecture. This is simply the most stunning part of Ljubljana as well as one of the most historically important.
