Not many travellers know about Ljubljana more than the fact that it's the main city of Slovenia. Nevertheless, tiny, but very cute, it deserves attention and usually leaves a good impression after visiting. Somehow Ljubljana reminds tourists of the capital of the Czech Republic, it’s even called a small Prague by some. Tourists come here to see the castle Grad and the Old Town, get acquainted with the local culture or just to walk around this quiet, green and cosy place of Eastern Europe.

Ljubljana has an unusual star-shaped layout. Right in the city centre are several hills, Castle Hill and extensive green areas, which by area account for half of the entire municipal formation. Even in the high season here is quiet and pleasant: a wonderful place to escape from the routine of the busy big city life and relax.

In addition, it is an excellent starting point for short trips - the capital is in the centre of the country.
