Ljubljana, Slovenija

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana was completely unexpected. Actually, we didn’t know what to expect, but it hinted along the lines of communistic square buildings in gray like other parts of Eastern Europe. We were passing through from Verona to Zagreb, feeling the pull of the sea far too strong (it was right there!), but since we had to make it to Zag, we should at least take advantage of passing through Slovenia and stop in at the capital. Cleanest, shiniest, pastel-iest city filled with patios along the river, Ljubljanica. If we didn’t have to drive to our hotel in another country, we’d most def have been amongst the patio drinkers. Besides looking so lovely (check out that pink building!), it’s also fun to say (lyoo-blee-yana).

Isn’t she lovely? Isn’t she wonderful? Yep, yep. She also likes to be serenaded..probably.

  1. I think I just added Ljubljana to my hypothetical future cross-European road trip!

  2. I spent 3 days there, which was the right amount of time. It is such a great city, and still less touristy than others, although I am sure that is changing!

    Gorgeous! I’ve heard from some people that they went for a few days and it got pretty boring so you got the perfect taste without getting bored!

  4. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful!

  5. That pink building is, if memory serves, the cathedral. I liked Ljubljana – it’s compact and small enough to walk everywhere but it did feel almost too small. Or maybe it’s just me 🙂

  6. There is a real lure of European cities on rivers, don’t you think?

  7. those are the most gorgeous photos i’ve ever seen! seriously.

  8. Gorgeous photos! I just discovered your blog and am looking forward to seeing other photo posts like this one.

  9. We randomly stumbled upon Ljubljana as we were traveling from Florence to Zagreb, and I was so glad that we did! I never expected for a former hotbed of communism to be such a lovely place. We just returned home after our travels, so it is so nice to be able to relive these memories through your blog. Best of luck traveling in Croatia- it’s actually horrible!

    • We had the same thought when we stopped in – surprisingly lovely! Seriously, getting home from the vacay was hard, but sorting through these photos is fun (if not a little sad to see my tan fading already..)!
