Central Europe [Part 8]: Ljubljana, Slovenia's Charming Capital City

 << Previous Post: A Day Trip to Innsbruck, Austria <<

After staying in Salzburg for two nights, it's time to bid goodbye to this city in central Austria and continued with our journey to the next country. A country which I've never been before and this round, I got to add another new country in my list which is Slovenia (my 59th country). From Salzburg, we took train to the capital city of Slovenia, Ljubljana. The train ride took around 4 hours with a short interchange at Villach Hbf. As usual, we used the Eurail Global Pass bought from Klook.  

#1: Goodbye Austria! See you again next time. 

#2: Hello Slovenia! Hello Ljubljana too for the very first time.

Ljubljana railway station is situated just north of the city center and short walk to most of the popular attractions. The accommodation we booked sits right in the middle of the railway station and the main square - within 10 minutes walk from the railway station and less than 5 minutes to the Ljubljana's main square. 

#3: Fully equipped kitchenette with microwave and fridge

#4: One bedroom apartment

Things I Like About This Accommodation:
  • Centrally located in the middle of Ljubljana railway station, bus station and main tourist attractions.    
  • Fully equipped kitchenette with microwave and fridge. 
Things I Dislike About This Accommodation:
  • No lift and required to climb 3 flight of stairs before reaching the entrance

Ljubljana is pretty compact and a small town where you can reach most of the main attractions on foot, except for the Zoo and the Architecture Museum. Like most of the time, the Old Town of certain city is always be the top on my list to explore and visit, including for Ljubljana. Here, you will spot countless bridges, fountains, churches, statues, monuments and more.    

#5: Franciscan Church of the Annunciation 

#6: Prešeren Square, the central square in Ljubljana. 
It's part of the old town's pedestrian zone and a major meeting point. 

#7: Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most) 

#8: Ljubljana's Town Hall


#10: Charming canal view from the square 


#12: Unique building

#13: Honestly to say, I always love to try McDonald's in different country because they have different variety. Like the one in Slovenia, their McD served Chicken Bacon burger and Fries Cheddar & Bacon. 

#14: Magnet and postcard are must buy for my personal collection

My verdict on Ljubljana - although this city is less popular compare to the rest of the cities in Western Europe, for me, Ljubljana is surprisingly charming and mesmerising. It's less crowded with not many tourists and making the atmosphere so much relaxed and calm. How I wish I could stay longer here? Spending two days are totally insufficient.
