Ljubljana is one of these small, cozy capitals that don’t feel like capital cities at all. People don’t rush, the atmosphere is laid-back, the quay of Ljubljanica river is full of cafes that are always full of people sipping drinks. It feels like the time has stoped there and I was transfered to the places from my childhood. I was in Ljubljana again a year ago and it still felt exactly the same. And also when I was there for the first time back in 2002…
One of the most important places to visit, besides aimless wander around in the old town, is the castle that raises high above the town. Maybe the castle itself isn’t very special but the view from the top of the hill is spectacular, besides the red rooftops you can see magnificent Alp mountains in the background (since it’s only 80 kms you must be very unlucky not to see the mountains).
