Ljubljana

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Ljubljana Castle and Franciscan Church of the Annunciation will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Ljubljana Old Town and Cathedral of St. Nicholas. There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Žale Cemetery, snap pictures at Butcher's Bridge, ponder the world of politics at Town Hall, and see the interesting displays at House of Illusions.
