Why visit Ljubljana?
Ljubljana is a truly magical little town. It is the capital of Slovenia, but it does not really feel that way, as the city only houses 280,000 people. It’s a very green, clean city full of nice places to go for walks, drink coffee and enjoy your time.

Where to stay?
The best place to stay in the city is probably in the center, but if you don’t mind a short walk of 10 minutes, I would recommend the Prule / Trnovo area. It’s a very green area right by the river and the walk towards the center is really nice. An interesting place to stay is hostel Celica, which used to be a prison which has now been transformed into a vibrant, cozy and beautiful place to stay. It’s located in the artistic part of Ljubljana.
