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 university students.
Something you shouldn’t miss? This certainly is the discovery of the picturesque central market, a real feast to the eyes. It is one of the rare places where one can still buy fresh and genuine produce directly from the farmers. A truly “ljubljanesque” experience is to go there on a Saturday – the day when many local residents flock there, combining shopping and socializing. The fresh ingredients from the market are the basis of culinary delights served in the city restaurants where one can try delicious mediteranian cousine. We recommend to try Monstera bistro that offers and represents innovative Bine Volcic (Master Chef) cuisine, where seasonal ingredients thrive in bistro lunches and new flavours find their way into tasting menus at the weekends.
