Ljubljana, Slovenia (Capital) (4/22-23/2011)

Make believe for a moment and you can easily imagine you are in a fairly-tale city when wandering the old town of Slovenia’s largest and capital city, Ljubljana.

With friendly people, a beautiful tree-line river, castle on a hill, lovely squares, a treasure trove of medieval and Baroque buildings with a pink Franciscan Church, and cafes spilling out everywhere into the pedestrian only streets of old town, Ljubljana (pronounced “lyoob-ly-AH-nah”) is a wonderful destination. T-shirts here spell the county "sLOVEnia". 

Known for its Dragon and Triple Bridges, Ljubljana’s charms go beyond beautiful architecture by being one of the smallest capital cities in Europe.

Ljubljana's 50,000 university students add excitement and vitality with sidewalk cafes everywhere in the old town. People in Ljubljana buy their food in the open market and eat and socialize in the outside cafes in the exquisitely lit old town. Lovely! We had great 72-degree weather.

Our visit to Ljubljana's castle included an interesting 3D movie about the whole area. For dazzling views of Ljubljana, ascend to the castle via the glass-bubble funicular. We had lunch (local trout with spinach, carrots, and potatoes with a local beer) near the old Town Hall outside an old inn (Sokol) where the servers dress in period outfits. 

We took the glass covered boat trip up the Ljubljanica River. We also visited the Metelkova area in Ljubljana, a former army barracks that students took over and turned into an artsy bohemian subculture. 

In Ljubljana’s central park (Park Trvoli), we had a wonderful peaceful Spring picnic surrounded by flowers and trees (see photo). On the way back we ran into a teenage girl march wanting Justin Bieber to come to Sovenia (see photo).

Ljubljana took its present form under the Austrian Habsburgs and is now the capital of Slovenia’s 2 million people recently gaining their independence in 1991. With more than half the country covered in forest, Slovenia is one of the greenest countries in the world.
