    With just under 300,000 people, Ljubljana has preserved the friendly feel of a small town, while keeping everything that large capitals have to offer. In addition to the greenery, which you can encounter at every step in Ljubljana, its picturesque appearance has been marked by various historical periods, and particularly by the oeuvre of the world-renowned architect Jože Plečnik.

     

    The centre of Ljubljana stretches between two small hills, Rožnik Hill and the Castle Hills, where the Ljubljana Castle is located. The city is green, with parks all around. The largest one, Tivoli Park, which is the starting point for your hike to Rožnik Hill, is a popular location for recreation. The 35-kilometre Walk Along the Wire will also spark your interest.  It’s a walk commemorating a time when a wire was installed by the occupier in World War II with the purpose of cutting Ljubljana off from the rest of the country. Today, people enjoying a walk or a hike, runners, and cyclists can be encountered on this walk, while cross-country skiing is also possible in winter.

     

    There are many small hills in the city outskirts. The most popular one is Šmarna Gora Hill. You can also hike up to Rašica Hill, Golovec Hill, Toško Čelo Hill, Krim Hill, or the Polhov Gradec Hills. To the south, Ljubljana is surrounded by the swampy Ljubljana Marshes Landscape Park.

    An interesting mixture of various cultures, a venue for sporting, cultural, and business events. Ljubljana is a city with a green soul.
