10 Photos That Will Make You Want To Visit Ljubljana

Ljubljana was the unexpected highlight of our day. It was a sunny summer day of June when road-tripping around Europe, we decided to make a lunch stop at this unexplored Slovenian territory. Since we left Budapest we had been on the road for about 7 hours, and had still a long way to go until arriving at Venice. 

I clearly remember feeling tired. You may wonder why, given the 7 hours I had spent on the road, but that morning we had woken up at 5am, and the previous night had been a late one. We attended a Hungarian party where we tried their famous Palinka, together with their typical dishes–and all, accompanied by lots of dancing, and a live music festival. It had been amazing, but early mornings after late nights are always hard. Nonetheless, road-time was worth it, and Ljubljana made me forget about all this being-tired-nonsense.

I was surprised with the city that was before my eyes. It was incredibly beautiful I started to wander why on Earth had I not seen or read anything about it prior to my trip. 

So my camera was glued to my hands the whole time, and I decided I would soon write this post, and share with everyone the wonderful place I had just discovered. Take a look at what I saw that day:

Walking down its streets was breathtaking and relaxing. The sun was beaming, and birds were singing. I suddenly found myself wishing for more time to unwind in the terrace of some restaurant with a glass of wine, and the pages of my favourite book.

And talking about books…

Take a look at what I found! A lovely book stand right there on the street. At first it caught my attention given the abnormal it is to see this kind of thing in Mexico. I then took the time to translate what the paper reads, and fell in love with the concept of promoting literature in the streets. KNJIGA means “books” in Slovenian, so that would mean that books are sold for 1 Euro each. The other paper reads: PLAČILO V NABIRALNIK which means “payment in mailbox”. This is just so incredibly lovely. 

Something else I loved about Ljubljana was its colour scheme. Just look at the photo above! This houses (and castle on top) are lined alongside the river, and have all creamy-orangey colour tones to match!

As seen on the previous picture, Ljubljana has a beautiful castle. Doesn’t it make you feel like living in a fairytale?

The city is charming, clean, and beautiful; and its people are kind, honest, and really nice. Ljubljana is a place that makes you feel safe. It somehow transmits peace and tranquility. Take a look at some of the other photos I was able to snap there:

So after having lunch in a beautiful and delicious restaurant, I dedicated the whole time I had there to walk around, photograph, and explore. To my surprise, the city wasn’t full of tourists, as were other cities we had visited that summer. Ljubljana was different. Ljubljana is charming and welcoming in its own unique way, and if I ever find myself as lucky as I was to be there again, I would definitely stay longer.

Ljubljana is the place that–if not there already–should be on your travel radar. It’s the capital of Slovenia, and is considered to be one of the greenest, and most liveable cities in the world!

    I’m really enjoying the theme/form of your website.
    Do you come across any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Firefox. Do you possess any
    tips to help fix this problem?

      Hi! If you can, send me the link to your website to check it out. That can help me nail the problem down. Anyway, have you considered this happening because of the theme you’re using? My guess is that’s the issue. Before I had this theme, I used one and had trouble with it. It didn’t appear the same way in the different Internet browsers, and I have not experience this problem again with the one I use now! Hope this helps!! If not, feel free to write me! Good luck!
