  • A nice “old town” that is great to explore. The Škofja Loka Castle took me 3 hours ( I’m a geek). The women at the ticket desk are amazingly informative and friendly. There are quite a few vignettes....  more »
  • Unlike Ljubljana castle, this has been preserved in an authentic manner. The museum is interesting, diverse and cultural. Much better than the one on Ljubljana  more »
