    We spent two days in Ljubljana. We found the downtown to be convenient and charming. There is a lot of graffiti, which sort of bothered me because it is such a beautiful city. Some think it gives it a modern, gritty look, so I guess it depends on who you are.

    It’s sort of cool and different to have three bridges right next to each other, but other than that, I didn’t think it was so special. It does make the downtown very accessible.

    If you want to include a peaceful park in your sightseeing in Ljubljana, I recommend this place. It is not far from the city centre, it is clean, flowers are nice and there is a lake too.

    Really fun spot! Lots to see and a great place to people watch. The buildings are eye catching and it is just across from the market.

    We passed by the Union going to Tivoli Park and we noticed a sign that talked about the Union Experience. We booked easily from the web page and showed up the next day for the visit. We were greeted by very kind staff who took us to our tour guide. Erik is a Slovenian mother tongue, but speaks Italian and English very well. He accompanied us back in time, telling us the whole story that made Union what it is today. It was the most interesting part, followed by a virtual tour of the production plant and finally a taste of 4 different typical Union beers while chatting about the experience and Ljubljana. Thanks Erik for the kindness and availability, that made the two hours really enjoyable.

    There is a small entry fee, but worth a visit. There is some history regarding the entry doors, so prepare yourself in advance of your visit. The interior is elaborate and eye-catching.

    It is worth taking the boat ride to see the activities along the river. Avoid mid day to escape sun.

    This is an unusual landmark to visit. It’s not really an activity, but it’s a good photo op and easy to find.

    And exciting little area to get some goods and produce. Lots of merchants who are eager to sell. Fresh fruits, flowers, etc

    An audio tour is a must if you want to understand and appreciate all that is part of Ljubljana Castle – its history and folklore is impressive. (Be sure to buy the right ticket for the tour and also access to some of the buildings). The buildings have been beautifully restored. The view is lovely but the Skyscraper has a better view. I give credit to the Mayor who had the vision to buy the castle and restore it, turning it into this multi-use tourist (and local) attraction. We need more mayor’s like him who think about the future. A word of warning and a friendly hint – you have to pay for the main bathroom (upon arrival with the cable car); but there is a free bathroom downstairs near audio tour stops 7 and 8 …. Personally, I find it outrageous that when you pay for admission to a museum/castle that you need to pay for the bathroom (or use one of the restaurants to use a bathroom); the girl in the gift shop said “we like our money,” when I asked about the bathroom at stop 7/8 she said “yes we have some hidden free ones”. Really!!

    We have been to the castle and to the "skyscraper" on the same day and the view on the SC was much better. Mostly because you can see the castle with the mountains on your view.

    The nice part of the old town is mich better to see than on the castle. (For clear information we did not go on tower of the castle)

    On the SC you go uo by a lift. Sit down and have a Drink (not to expensiv). No extra costs for entry. A toilet is also available

    Old army barracks taken over by squatters to prevent it being demolished. It’s now a social and cultural centre that hosts regular events. Well worth visiting….about a fifteen minute walk from the Old town.

    Lovely place to go for a stroll, day or night, with a pup if you have one. The riverfront area of Ljubljana is charming, and it's definitely worth spending some time strolling around, people watching, dog watching, enjoying a drink and/or a meal... Really can't go wrong in this neck of the woods, any time of year (have been in summer and winter).

    Great place to retreat from the summer hot city sun. We were visiting as a family with a 4 year old child. There are also quite a few children's playgrounds in the garden so that little children can have a little fun if they are not interested in visiting the entire zoo. The zoo is also expanding and there are often some new animals in the garden.
