Quote:
One of Ljubljana's most popular eating places, Ljubljanski Dvor has an enviable position over looking the river in the heart of town - but only if you've managed to get an outside table. On Sundays in particular this pizzeria gets really busy. What is great about it is that it doesn't appear to charge you extra for the location which many places in the area do. You can order some traditional Sovene dishes but most people come here to be baffled by the seemingly endless list of pizzas. Allow at least twenty minutes to decide! In fact the pizzas are quite similar but are listed with each little change. For example you'll see a seafood pizza and pages later seafood pizza with basil. There are some in...Read More

Cruising the Ljubljanica River

Story/Tip

Preparing to sail Photo, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana’s Ljubljanica River does not have the grandeur of the Danube, the Seine or the Thames but then most things in the Slovenian capital are in miniature. At the point where most visitors see the river it almost looks too small for boats and in twelve years of visiting I only ever saw one ‘party boat’ on the water in the city centre. Therefore I was delighted one Sunday this summer to see a pleasure cruise for tourists and with a couple of hours to kill before we had to leave for the airport we took our first jaunt on the Ljubljanica. The tour leaves from the steps on the northern embankment of the river known as Hribarjeva nabrezje; if you’re there on a Sunday it’s near where the fl...Read More

A Ljubljana Sunday

Best Of IgoUgo

Story/Tip

Quote:
As a Brit, I found Slovenian Sundays hard to adapt to at first; in fact weekends in Slovenia are quite different from what I’m used to, and it’s quite useful to know what to expect should you be making a weekend trip to Ljubljana or a longer trip that includes a weekend. At lunch-time on Saturday the city centre shops close and they don’t open again until Monday morning. A German friend thought it was odd that I should mention that but in the UK our stores – be they in a town centre or an out of town mall – can open for six hours on a Sunday (local convenience stores can open longer). In Slovenia some, but not all of the out of town malls open on a Sunday while a few convenience stores ope...Read More

Ljubljana Flea Market

Attraction | "Sunday Morning at the Fleamarket"

Quote:
No matter how many times I visit Ljubljana, I have to stroll along the riverside flea market if my visit includes a Sunday morning. It’s not the biggest or the best (in terms of prices or goods) I’ve ever visited but the atmosphere is good and the setting is delightful. The market starts approximately at 8.00am and goes on until around 2.00pm though some stall holders may leaver earlier if they've done well. The flea market used to be held on the Old Town side of the Ljubljanica but now it takes place on the northern side and it occupies the stretch of embankment known as Hribarjevo Nabrezje. There seems to be fewer stalls than in the past and there’s more of a feeling of a true flea-marke...Read More

Zale Cemetery

Attraction | "The Dead Centre of Ljubljana "

Quote:
Spending a freezing January afternoon in the company of the dead might not be everyone’s idea of a good time but Ljubljana’s Zale cemetery is a wonderful work of art and design that is worth a visit at any time of year; in fact, the attention and work that has been invested in the design of the gardens and walkways almost demands that you see it at different times of the year. Designed by Slovenia’s best known and most prolific architect Joze Plecnik, Zale was completed in 1940 as a re-working of the older cemetery attached to the Church of the Holy Cross. Examples of Plecnik’s work are easy to spot in Ljubljana and few visitors leave the city, even after just a short break, unaware of who...Read More
