Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.

There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Ljubljana Old Town, step into the grandiose world of Ljubljana Castle, and shop like a local with Galerija Hest.
