Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
On the 2nd (Wed), snap pictures at Dragon Bridge, then make a trip to Prešeren Square, then ponder the world of politics at Town Hall, and finally don't miss a visit to Ljubljana Castle. Here are some ideas for day two: Head underground at Postojna Cave, then contemplate the waterfront views at Ljubljanica River, then stop by Ljubljana Old Town, and finally take in the views from Triple Bridge.
