    A walk along the river is a good way to discover Ljubljana. I recommend you to go from Preseren square till Fuzine (about 6-7km). Unfortunately I had no time enough to do this, but I went till the sportiv park.
    Also are available excursions by boat - day and night.

    There are several spot around the city center where to stroll along the Ljubljanka river. It is also possible to take a boat tour.
    The water offer nice reflections and a relaxing feeling. There are also several bars and restaurant with tables overlooking the water.

    Ljubljanica is 41 km long, and some 20 km of its course lies underground in caves, so the river has seven names. The river divided in two part the town and along its sides you can see fantastic example of buildings in Secession style. You can also see interesting bridges like the Triple Bridge or the cobblers' Bridge.

    A boat tour on the Ljubljanica river.

    One evening I took a boat tour on the river.

    The tour had a commentary in English and took around one hour. The boat passed under several bridges so I could see part of Ljubljana under another perspective. Our guide told us a lot of things about the town during the cruise.

    From april to the end of october there are scheduled tours starting from Ribji trg pier; at Cankarjevo nabrezje (this is a place not far from the Triple Bridge). Ask at the tourist office for the times of departure. Tickets for the tours are sold on the boats or at the tourist office.

    It's not about the river, but...

    Ljubljanica

    Yes, it is not about the river itself but about the fact that it crosses troughout the most attractive part of the city. Walk along it's both sides to admire the charming old houses or take the tourist boat to drive you along. The best thing is to do both.
    The river is also called the river of the seven names because it goes underground a number of times and springs again under a different name.

    We walk everyday along the streets beside the Ljubljanica River in the Old Town, which are lined by numerous cafes and restaurants. There are also frequently musicians providing entertainment for the passers-by. It is so beautiful and lively.

    Walk Along the River

    The Ljubljanica river is a sight in its own right because of the beautiful bridges and overhanging trees. It makes for a nice walk to walk up and down it. There are plenty of riverside cafes, bars and restrauants with nice views if you fancy a break from walking too. Also, check out the lamp-posts that line the river barrier - they have a pair of dragons on every single one which I think is a nice touch. All the bidges are lit up and the cafes and bars alive at night so it makes for a slightly different but still beautiful walk at night too.

    The River

    In Ljubljana, river Ljubljanica is definitely the centre of everything. Lazy weekend meetings with family and friends, dinner or a drink on evenings, walk and an ice-cream, exebitions and street concerts... here you can do all. It's definitely my favourite place in Ljubljana.

    Ljubljanica river flows through the city center and it is crossed by several bridges. On the side of the old town (see the Town Hall square) there are various cafes, restaurants and some shops. On sundays there is also a flea market there.

    The Ljubljanica River flows quietly through the centre of Ljubljana with hardly a ripple on it as I only ever saw one tourist boat on it! The river is also known as The River of Seven Names and empties itself into the Sava 10km to the northeast of the city centre. About 1km further upstream from the Triple Bridge lie two canals - the Gruber (built in 1783) and Gradascica which meet the river.

    It is believed that the first bridge across the Ljubljanica river was built back in Roman times, most probably somewhere between the present Cobblers' Bridge and Šentjakob Bridge. The medieval Ljubljana boasted two wooden bridges, an old bridge located at the site of the present Triple Bridge and the Butchers' Bridge, which was located at the site of the present Cobblers' Bridge. Architect Jože Pleènik redesigned the embankments with tree-lined walks.

    Cankarjevo Nabrezje

    Cankarjevo Nabrezje

    Cankarjevo Nabrezje is a street in the old town along the western bank Ljubljanica River, leading from the Triple Bridge to the Cobbler Bridge. It is a pedestrian zone with many ice cream parlours, cafés and restaurants and can become very full on sunny days. A fellow traveller told me, that this street reminded him of a gracht in Amsterdam and somehow I could agree with him.

    Beside from the meintioned places to eat and drink, the only notable attraction is Ribji trg (fish square), which is a narrow street leading from Cankarjevo Nabrezje to the town hall. There, you will find Ljubljana's oldest building. To read more about this street / square, check out my tip about Ribji Trg and the oldest house which is found in the old town category.

    Another view from the water side. The building on the left hand side, are arcades, designed by our famous architect Joze Placnik. In the middle of the photo is Tripple bridge, a little bit unlike than on usually seen photos.

    If you choose a longer option of the trip along the Ljubljanica river, you'll see this view onto the Ljubljana castle. There is served a meal - grilled meat and salads and drinks. You'll pass by many oars in their small boats, whole duck's families and you can admire scenic landscape.

    Pretty new way of sightseeing Ljubljana is by boat. You can choose an option of tour that lasts two and a half hour, and leads you out to the morass - excellent trip - or a shorter option viewing Ljubljana from the river side.
