City Breaks & Christmas Markets in Ljubljana

Ljubljana has everything offered by a modern capital, while at the same time it has the surprisingly friendly and relaxed atmosphere of a smaller town.

Ljubljana is an ideal destination for a winter city break and it also has a thriving and exciting Christmas market.

The city and surroundings are distinguished by numerous sites of natural beauty, cultural features from the colourful local history, a diversity of cuisine, attractive recreational.

This city, with its remains of stilt dwellings from the wetlands dating back more than 4,500 years, is a city of mythological tales.

There's also a model of the city here so you can get your bearings. You will soon see that the main part of the city is between the castle, the river and the city. There is a lot of development going on at the moment especially between shoemakers bridge (so called because in medieval times 16 cobblers plied their trade on the bridge) and dragons bridge whicfh would have been behind the old city walls. There are also still archaelogical digs going on as a medieval grave yard has bee discovered along with eveidence of settlers in 2000BC living where the castle now stands.In fact the worlds' oldest wheel was discovered here.

Much of the architecture you will see was all done by the same person - Joze Plecnik . he was an architect, city planner and designer and was not only born in Ljubljana, but also resigned much of it. Examples of his work are the National Library, Triple Bridge, Tivoli Park, central market, various churchs and much more (and that's just in this city - there are many more examples of his work throughout Slovenia).
