Why you should move to Ljubljana

  We’ve all been there. Not in Ljubljana, but on that magical high caused by the excitement of travel that makes us say: “I could totally live here”, as the new city seduces us with the promise of new flavours, smells and inhabitants. With years, you learn to resist the urge and grow to appreciate travel for what it is – a sweet platonic relationship, short-term romantic affair that wasn’t meant to be put to test of harsh realities, in this case the bureaucratic & cultural difficulties of starting life anew at a destination that only yesterday seemed so unquestionably perfect. Ljubljana, however, keeps climbing the lists of best places to live in as it extends its welcoming embrace to a growing number of expats. As an expat myself, enamoured with its ...

The new Mercedes-Benz CLS: Pioneer of a new design idiom

  In 2004, with the CLS, Mercedes-Benz created a new vehicle segment that for the first time combined the elegance and dynamism of a coupé with the comfort and functionality of a saloon. With the third generation of the CLS, Mercedes-Benz is now building more strongly than ever on the aura and unique character of this trendsetting model: the new model has pure CLS genes with its arching waistline, flat side window lines and low greenhouse. At the same time it is another example of the logical evolution of the Sensual Purity design idiom: sharp edges and lines have been significantly reduced. It blends seamlessly into the current Mercedes-Benz coupé family with numerous design features.

Why is Ljubljana one of the most popular European weekend destinations?

  Stretch back & relax is a motto of our Ljubljana. It is easy to travel to Slovenia, since it has road, air and train connection to all major EU capitals. And airoport is only 30 minutes drive from Ljubljana. Due to its small size of only around 300,000 population and compact city centre, Ljubljana is a walking and environmentally friendly city. It has one of the best-preserved Baroque quarters in Central Europe that blends harmoniously with the younger Art Nouveau style. And it was blessed with the talent of Jože Plečnik, who, between the two World Wars, created the cosmopolitan image of Ljubljana with his eclectic architecture. The young and dynamic spirit of the Slovenian capital often stuns first-time visitors. No wonder, since almost one quater out of city population are uni...
