Very Good
It's a quaint town. Most sights are pretty concentrated in the city centre and along the river, which is a very nice stroll. The architecture is quite beautiful. It's also quite easy/quick to train to other nearby sights/towns/cities like Bled, or Zagreb.

The historical, walled city, is what makes Ljubljana interesting. People are very friendly. Excellent local cold meats, cheeses, bread and wines can be ordered at reasonably priced restaurants and coffee shops.

It is a wonderful destination one of Europe's gems - picturesque, English widely spoken, easy to get around, vibrant both day and night and cottage crafts such as jewellery, glassware and pottery of high quality and prices reasonable. Food also nice and also reasonably priced.

Nice city, especially the historical part. Nice pedestrian area. Lots of good bars and restaurants. Not a lot of people in September. Mini Switzerland at half the price. Good food, nice wines.

Recommended in Ljubljana

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.

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.

Just talk to your host where you're staying - we asked ours for recommendations, they asked us what we liked and based on that told us what they liked. There are so many places it really depends on individual choice

The castle has been turned into a set of museums, restaurants and cafes and there is a viewing tower. You can access the castle by walking up or taking the funicular.

We found most people we dealt with very approachable and loved to share information about their favourite sight in Ljubljana

It is pretty, clean and well organized. Good and fresh air coming from the nearby mountains. Nice food and friendly people.

Ask the locals about the best places to see, to hear great music or taste the wonderful local cuisine.
