Dear bachaters, prepare to be amazed by the truly picturesque and green city – Ljubljana.
It is Slovenia’s capital and largest city and lies halfway between Vienna and Venice. Its location within a convenient two-hour flight from almost all major European airports makes it an easily accessible destination.
Ljubljana will for sure win you with its relaxed atmosphere, reminiscent both of the Mediterranean and Central Europe. Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city’s heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists. During December, the city centre lights up and becomes a true fairy tale. Ljubljana is ranked among the most attractive capitals with its December illuminations and Christmas fair. The whole light setting is based around the theme of the universe and it will make you feel wow! Not to mention tons of coffee terraces at the banks of the river filling the air with the scent of hot wine and cinnamon sticks, making the atmosphere just right!
