Everything I’ve ever read about Ljubljana, Slovenia is true – it is an amazing little city and is highly underrated. I truly think it’ll become extremely popular in the next five-ish years. It reminded me of the European version of St. Petersburg, Florida – in the best possible way. It is so modern, relaxed, fresh, beautiful and trendy.
We unfortunately only had a half day in Ljubljana (and the previous night), but easily could have spent a few days meandering and eating our way around the city. It is a very clean, small, walkable city with tons of beautiful, trendy restaurants and cafes.
My favourite thing about Ljubljana is how welcomed you feel when you walk around. Unlike most major cities in Europe and around the world, there is no separation between locals and tourists. There isn’t a “touristy area” of the city where tourists tend to eat and drink. You will find locals and tourists together all around the city.
I fell in love with it instantly and immediately got the sense that I’d be happy living there. Definitely worth visiting!! My only complaint is it is so difficult to get to. I wish there were direct flights from Dublin!
Next up: Bled!
