We did not think that any of the little restaurants were tourist traps! The prices were reasonable, the food good and they were frequented by locals as well. We liked the Cha Tee house best with its amazing variety of teas and its great fresh salads.

The castle was well restored with some really good exhibitions. The main one explained the castle, city and country's history really well

We usually left our hotel early in the morning to avoid the throngs of tourists at the touristy spots. Its a great way to get great pictures as the morning sun lights up the sky. Perfect lighting. Plus, there are no crowds of people at the background!

We'd have lunch at about 11'ish, then return to our hotel for siesta until about 4pm. We would then simply go for walks around the city, away from the touristy spots.

What makes Ljubljana one of those classic city trip experiences?

Ljubliana is a very cute city and it is fun to walk through it. We will strongly suggest travellers to include Lake Bled in their route; it is magnificient! One of the most peaceful and beautiful places we have ever been.

The people at the City Hotel were awesome. From the kitchen staff to the front desk staff: from figuring out the espresso machine to booking me on day trips on a day that I was not even staying at their hotel (because they were booked). Great service and always with a smile. Most of the shops I visited the people were also welcoming and friendly. The bus station and train station people were maybe less comfortable with their english so came across as not so friendly but they did their best to help me out.

Festivals bring people out and many of them show up in traditional clothing. Flea markets offer antiques from Slovenia. Many memorials, museums, etc commemorate and teach tourists about Slovene history. Many food items and handicrafts offered represent many generations of Slovene tradition.

It's best to ask Slovene folks what they think are authentic cultural experiences. People in Ljubljana are very nice and helpful when you are trying to decide what to do or how to find what you are looking for.

The river and pedestrian bridges crossing over to the old town were beautiful. Musicians played in the afternoons and evenings. Lots of cafes.

It is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. It is not very big, but it is a lovely place and very clean. There is a wonderful atmosphere wandering along the river. Going up to the castle for the view at sunset was so beautiful, I couldnt drag myself away even though it was raining. I also felt very safe wandering around at night.

Some people might be disappointed in the relative scarcity of "typical" souvenirs offered in Ljubljana. However, this is one of the things I like about Slovenia in general. Go there and find things you will love and that offer far more satisfaction than cheap baubles. For example, find Slovene wines and honey....try pumpkinseed oil on ice cream....buy something written in Slovene and learn a few words....purchase handicrafts made by local artisans, such as the "Idrian" lace, etc. There is so much richness to Slovenia that you can bring home without resorting to all of the predictable types of souvenirs.

Ecological, locally-produced food is big in Slovenia and can frequently be found at restaurants in Ljubljana as well as at the daily market. Slovenian food is also less meaty and heavy than the cuisine in other Slavic countries.
