Top 5 Must Do's in LjubljanaEdit This
Ljubljana at first instance gives the impression of being intensely archaic, but look closer and specifically to the west of the Ljubljanica River and you’ll find traces of erupting modern technology. The Ljubljana Must Do's offers viewers a fascinating glimpse into the attractions and activities worth witnessing in this culturally prosperous Slovenian Capital.
1. Ljubljana Castle
The most prominent landmark of the city, the Ljubljana Castle, is an imposing and picturesque monument that offers an enthralling view of Ljubljana from its lofty towers. Visitors can also catch a spectacular view of River Sava and the adjoining Kamnik Alps. There is an in-house screening of a 3D movie depicting the history of Ljubljana. The best way to get here is by riding the tourist train from Triple Bridge or taking the Funicular Railway to the lower station.
2. A city by itself
A self-proclaimed independent region that has contoured its own eclectic culture, Metelkova City is place for rebellious artists and a reservoir of alternate art. Myriad sub-cultures have germinated here and the place houses a bevy of nightclubs, bars and pubs for the youth to hobnob and discuss artistic cults. Avoid going on weekends when the place is extremely crowded and watch out for your valuables.
3. Triple Bridge
Ljubljana's iconic Triple Bridge has three distinct sub-bridges that are picturesquely located adjacent to each other and give a stunning view of the statue of France Prešeren, a celebrated Slovenian poet and the old town center.
4. Old town discovery
Visit Ljubljana's old town quarter, a charming medley of ancient city halls, towering monuments, old churches and well-protected heritage buildings. The region is to the east of the Ljubljanica river and commences from the Roba fountain. The quaint cafes, restaurants and local shops coupled with glorious medieval houses complete the attractive old town odyssey.
5. Art attack
You can’t be a hardcore art enthusiast and not visit this place. The National Gallery is a fantastic montage of the most exquisite pieces of impressionist art and other more popular genres. The center houses permanent collections of some of the most celebrated artists like Jana, Azbe and Jakopic.
Ljubljana‘s imposing structures and rich heritage will compel you to take it seriously and treat it with reverence while the city also lets you enjoy its burgeoning alternate art culture and contemporary infrastructure.
