Ljubljana is one of the most charming European capitals. Its old town is nestled between Ljubljana Castle and the Ljubljanica River. Due to its location, it is a unique place, as its inhabitants can afford high-altitude skiing and swimming in the sea in one day. Above the old part of the city rises the castle hill with Ljubljana Castle.
Ljubljana is a city of culture, home to many theaters, museums and galleries, and also boasts one of the oldest philharmonics in the world. More than 10,000 cultural events take place in the capital every year. Jože Plečnik, a great European architect from Ljubljana, left a strong personal architectural mark on Ljubljana. The most famous tourist attractions in Ljubljana are Ljubljana Castle, City Hall, St. George's Chapel, Congress Square, Prešeren Square, Three Bridges, St. Nicholas Cathedral, Franciscan Church, Old and Upper Square and the Shoemaker's Bridge.
The town was founded at the crossroads of four Slovenian regions, so you can find local culinary specialties in many city inns with a diverse offer. Today, it is a place frequented by scientists because of its university and internationally renowned institutes, artists because of the world-famous Graphic Biennial, art academy and countless art galleries, business people because of its many business meetings and fairs, and international experts because of congresses.
