Romantic, picturesque and historic, Slovenia’s capital city Ljubljana offers the visitor a taste of unspoilt and uncrowded old-world Europe. The welcome is warm, the riverside life is relaxing, the café and food scene is blossoming and the architecture ranges from Roman ruins, to medieval marvels, impressive baroque and the decorative style of the Vienna Secession.
Overlooked by Ljubljana Castle, this is a wonderful destination for those interested in European history, culture, gastronomy and natural beauty. The Ljubljanica River is the lifeblood of the city crossed by a number of bridges including the famous Triple Bridge and Butcher’s Bridge which allows visitors to leave lovers’ padlocks. While the city is small and walkable, taking a boat tour offers a different perspective and afterwards you can enjoy relaxing at one of the riverside restaurants and cafes. For the energetic there is a winding trail up to the castle or alternatively take the funicular railway to enjoy cityscape views.
Located just steps from the river and Ljubljana’s charming Old Town, Hotel Cubo is a boutique property with just 26 rooms. With spacious bedrooms and a well-known restaurant, this is a fantastic base to discover all that Ljubljana has to offer.
Just a 10-minute walk from Ljubljana’s Old Town, the Intercontinental Ljubljana offers a contemporary and luxurious stay in the city. As the tallest building in Ljubljana, boasting 20 floors, the views from the rooftop terrace are incomparable.
