Ljubljana, Slovenia Travel Guide

Last Updated: Dec 2023

Ljubljana is yet another small European capital with a lovely Old Town center, and not many checklist attractions beyond that. Slovenia itself is known mostly as a nature destination, with Lake Bled, the original Karst rocks, and some famous caves. So the fact that it’s modest capital city is cheap and pleasant is just a bonus.
