With the capital of Slovenia we could fall in love at first sight. Above the urban bustle there floats an image of flashing Ljubljana, where many cultural and artistic versions with hint of slovenianliness are at home.
Mainly baroque little town is spanned between the castle hill and river Ljubljanica. From the castle our sight follows gorgeous view at renaissance, baroque and secessial frontages. When our sight focuses on the last houses in the distance, we see mighty hills, surrounding Ljubljana Basin on the north side and on the south side there lies large plain Barje.
There are still visible traces of the past on town streets. Houses of the former ancient city Emona and mighty sculptures testifies about the highly developed culture in the distant past.
Plečnik´s Triple Bridge, which is mighty extending through the main city square, is the most admired and most walked over bridge in Slovenia. Underneath Ljubljanica meanders dreamily, caught between the willows. Our beloved Ljubljana was constructed and made beyond perfect by the Plečnik´s designs. Passers-by are admiring magnificent National and University Library, summer theatre Križanke, central stadion, colorful Market and many other gorgeous buildings.
Wandering through the interesting nooks in colorful summer and also in holiday winter is wonderful experience for both the citizens and tourists. During summer time coffee shops and sweetshops revives, during winter time there are many festivals going on underneath the Christmas lights.
Nowadays Ljubljana is greeted by world artists, who visits it because of the art galleries and academies, international known scientists, businessmen because of the fairs and congresses, curious tourists and many others, who are often coming back. And our dear Ljubljana awaits everyone of them with kindness and smile. Ljubljana imprints deeply in the memory of every single visitor.
