Photo Essay: Sightseeing in Ljubljana, Slovenia

9 Posted by - July 1, 2014 - Blog, Cities & Culture, Photography, Slovenia

These photos were taken during my trip to Ljubljana, which coincided with Easter. Because of this and the bad weather, the city was empty and the streets were mostly filled with tourists. It was even incredibly difficult to find a hostel which is open.

Anyway since Ljubljana is a small city you can see all the attractions in one day, without having to rush from one place to another.

      Yes it is, I liked it. And it seems like it has a great restaurant scene.

    We spent 6 weeks in Slovenia back in 98 with a girlfriend I worked with at Nortel. They had a home in MUTA so we really got to see a lot . Would love to go back. So many beautiful churches, all lit at night in the mountains.

      Arlene, thanks for the comment! Ljubljana is nice but Slovenia is all about the nature and it’s a great destination for outdoors enthusiasts 🙂

    I loved Ljubljana’s beauty. Romantic, warm, architecturally more diverse than I had anticipated.
    I ate burek, visited the castle and admired the beautiful buildings one by one, the dragon statues at a bridge…

      Where did you ate burek? Any place that you recommend? 🙂

    Great photo essay. I am sure Slovenia changed a lot in the last few years.
