Ljubljana Holidays Overview
Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, has always been proud of its beautiful history and is known to offer its visitors with a wealth of cultural and historical attractions to choose from. The culture is a unique mix of Mediterranean, Slovenian and German cultures and its iconic Old Town features grand ART Nouveau buildings, Renaissance era mansions and Baroque constructions that are worth a watch. Ljubljana is located in the Ljubljana River Basin and offers major transport links for industry, commerce, power and politics. It features a population of less than 300000 and offers its visitors with excellent outdoor charms. The old world Baroque buildings might be the most famous constructions in the city, but those made by Joze Plecknik are worth a watch as well.
The National Museum of Contemporary Slovenia is one of the best places to visit in the city as it allows tourists to check out crumbling statues of Stalin and a WWI trench. Other attractions worth exploring in Ljubljana include the Old Town, Dragon Bridge, Ljubljana Castle and the Ljubljana Museum. These attractions might lie at the centre of all tourist itineraries, but those in the city for a few days should make sure that they check out the suburban areas of Krakovo and Tmovo.
The city is also home to a buzzing student community and more than 56000 students attend the one of the many universities located in the city. The alternative lifestyle centre at Metelkova simply adds to the charm. Those looking for grandeur or world famous attractions in Ljubljana are likely to end up being disappointed from their tours. But those looking for excellent exhibits, atmospheric nightclubs, beautiful sceneries and relaxed surroundings are bound to fall in love with the Slovenian capital.
