If you’re coming to Slovenia for holidays, you definitly have to visit the capital – Ljubljana. It is also a green capital of Europe. Ljubljana is beautiful, because it’s not too big, it has a lot of shops and also green parks. It has some nice cafes too.
In summer, you should definitely go to the park Tivoli. It has a lot of meadows and trees. You can just lie on the meadow, talk to your friends and relax. Or, if you’re more of a sports person, you can go cycling, rollerblading or walking.
But when you get tired, you should have ice-cream. You can try it at the Zvezda cafe. I think they have the best ice-cream and they have many different flavours. They also have ice-cream without cow’s milk.
Now, if you’ve got some more energy, you can go to the Ljubljana castle. You have many ways to get there: you can walk, cycle, go by a tourist train or by cable railway. You can see a lot of interesting things there and you also have a beautiful view of the whole city. There is also a restaurant, where you can have lunch.
In winter, Ljubljana is really beautiful, because there are a lot of lights and it’s quite magical. I am in love with that atmosphere. If you want to buy some presents for your loved ones, you’re at the right place. There are a lot of small shops in the city centre, where you can buy some unique jewellery, clothes and a lot of other things made in Slovenia. I love shopping for presents in winter, but it is even more fun if you have hot chocolate somewhere, where you can talk, laugh and give presents to your friends.
Whenever you come to Ljubljana, it is fun and interesting. Even if it’s rainy, you can go to the theatre, cinema, museums or you can just sit in a cafe all day.
Anyway, I am sure you’ll have a lot of fun in Ljubljana!
