    Day Trip (3/4)

    by Redang Written Dec 29, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once you reach the lake, drive leaving it on your right for about 4 kms. and you will reach a parking area (you have to pay to leave the car; 3,00 € in August '09).

    Once there, be ready to walk up along a path but with steps and quite steepy. After around 20 minutes, you will see Slap Savica/Savica Waterfall (by the way, you have to pay for walking along that path; 2,40 € in August '09).

    Ribji Trg/Square

    by Redang Written Dec 21, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ribji trg (Fish Square) is the smallest square in the city, it developed from the former Ribja ulica street after the earthquake of 1.895. From the 16th century onwards, Ribja ulica (Fish Street) was the location of a fishing pier and a fish market, and the oldest building, constructed in 1.528, is here.

    Where: From the Prešeren trg, cross the river along the Triple Bridge and turn right. Walk along the river (on your right), and the square will show up on your left.

    Insouciant public art work

    by craic Updated Jun 13, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was running for the train to Venice - me and Krista - dragging my dumb suitcase which had lost its handle as I stepped on the ferry to Dubrovnik at Bari - brand new suitcase lost its handle the sod - when as we are about to descend into the tunnel that takes you to the platforms I saw an arty, bronze-like drain grille embedded in the asphalt. I was bemused. I stopped and stared and shouted - "Krista, it seems to be something to do with James Joyce!"
    It was like a hallucination, I couldn't make sense of it.
    But Krista flogged me onwards and luckily the train was a few minutes late so I made it.

    Bye bye Ljubljana. Thanks for everything.

    But then the arty drain grille started working on me so I asked Krista to check on it.

    And it is indeed a homage to James Joyce. They had a Bloom's Day in Ljubljana and as the only place he ever set foot in Ljubljana was the station - when he was on the train to Trieste and got off in Ljubljana by mistake - the Bloom's Day organisers put in this drain-grille.
    It is so very odd and hallucinatory that it is very nearly my favourite thing in this city.
    I am hoping to persuade Krista to let me use her photo of it.
    Why a drain grille? Krista says it was because he stepped off the train into a puddle
    And she also suggests it would be interesting to know what book he was reading that was so enthralling he couldn't tell the difference between Ljubljana and Trieste.

    My favorite daily walk with my doggy Timy

    This is another small pond close to the first one. It is a bit smaller and much more wild. Walking around you lose the feeling, you're practically in the town.
    Just a place to relax, to listen birds' singing in the early morning..to enjoy

    The outskirts of town. Near the place where I live
    Ljubljana is pretty green town. It has some beautiful parks and also two "hills" - Roznik and Golovec.
    This photo is taken in early Spring in Golovec region. This small pond is favorite place for local fishermen.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every Sunday there is a flea market along the banks of Ljubljanica river with lots of old stuff and paintings and anything you can think of...That scene reminded me very much the sunday flea market in the old center of Athens :) You can find from books, old paintings of Tito, antique cars, stamps and many other old things.After that you can enjoy your coffee to one of many coffees around, the perfect sunday morning!

    Hare Krishna

    by leics Written Aug 20, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Both times I've been to Ljubljana I've seen the Hare Krishna people; don't know why, maybe they travel round the city every day or maybe they were just on their way to do their shopping at the market.

    Whatever, they are an absolute joy! The London Hare Krishna people parade around too, but their chanting is nowhere near as exuberant and happy as this (perhaps it's the difference in weather?). Their huge grins and bounciness are infectious, and I did enjoy seeing them!

    Trnovo

    by Dabs Updated Jun 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We wandered into the suburb of Trnovo when we were looking for a restaurant, Harambasa Okrepcevapnica, it's within walking distance of the city center. It's on the southern end of Ljubljana, follow the river south to St. James Church, turn right on Zoisova Cesta, turn left on the 1st major street which is Emonska Ul. and follow that a few blocks until you see a church and a bridge.

    There are a couple of things to see here, listed as you'll come across them:

    Wall from ancient Emona-along Emonska at Krakovska, there is a section of the wall from ancient Emona

    Trnovo Bridge-facing the church, built in 1932, designed by Plecnik, the architect responsible for much of Ljubljana, it's got pyramids on the ends and a statue of John the Baptist in the middle

    Church of St. John the Baptist-built in 1855, renovated after the 1895 earthquake, it's where the poet Preseren, who called Trnovo "a place of miserable name", first laid eyes on his unrequited love, Julija Primic. It was open when we were there so we popped in to have a look

    Plecnik's House-directly behind the church,he lived here from 1921-1957 when he died, we didn't go inside but the guidebook says you can see his equipment, books, plans and furniture in the modest house and studio where he lived, open Tues-Thurs 10am-2pm, 4pm-6pm and Sat 10am-2pm, admission is 3E

    Adventure Planina cave exploring

    by Glorija Updated May 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This magnificant cave is close to the village of Planina, at the end of the Planinsko Polje. When Tommy from Sweden visited me in may 2007 we took the guide and had an incredible experience. It tooks us 5 hours and we walked, row canoe, crawl and climb.

    I liked it specially cose it was not crowded. There were only 3 of us - me, Tommy and Saso .. and the guide ofcourse! :)

    The guide was extremly nice and the cost of the hike inside the cave costs only 25 evro per person!

    So if you want to visit a cave do this here - Postojna cave is nothing compare to this adventure experience! You truly get to see the best of the cave!!
