Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Vintgar Gorge (Soteska Vintgar) and Tromostovje. Explore Ljubljana's surroundings by going to Skocjan Caves (in Divaca), Predjama Castle (in Postojna) and Bled (Bled Castle (Blejski Grad) & Lake Bled).
