    %B%CB%S4Old part of the town

    Old houses on the bank of Ljubljanica river.
    They are mostly renovated by new facades, so they offer a pretty nice view up to them. Both banks of Ljubljanica river is very lively nowadays. There are caffes, restaurants, shops...

    Bars

    Enjoy the view! ;)

    As Zagreb [and a lot more cities in SE Europe], Ljubljana has a lot of bars in the center, especially along the river. the best thing would be to take a stroll & pick one of the numerous places!

    We found a great bar called 'Zlata ladjica' where they have great seats [couches, hammocks aso.], so you can simply lie down - literally! - and enjoy the view of the castle & all the cute houses ont he riversides. :) Really nice...

    Ljubljanica River

    The Ljubljanica River makes Ljubljana one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. The best place to walk in the city is along the banks of the river especially on the right bank, where the Old Town is located underneath the castle hill.

    The river is a tributary of the Sava.

    Riverside reflections

    You don’t need a fantastic sunny day, with cloudless blue skies to appreciate the city of Ljubljana. A glimpse along the riverside offers the visitor a calming view of still water carrying the perfect reflection of weeping willows and colourful, decorative and aesthetically pleasing buildings. The proportions of the cityscape are nothing short of perfect.

    The Ljubljanica River

    My favorite feature of Ljubljana is the way the Ljubljanica River snakes through the center of town and the bridges that cross over it. All along its banks are various shops and stall and markets. Perfect for evening strolls; doing nothing but enjoying the city.

    Ljubljanica River

    Ljubljana's compact old town stands on the banks of the Ljubljanica River, and there are many great views, like this one, to be had from the several bridges over this remarkably clean city-centre river.

    Bank of Ljubljanica River

    Both banks of Ljubljanica river are very lively, especially in summer time. There are numerous bars, coffee shops and places, where you can take a break after strolling around, or meet a friend to have a drink together, may be a nice ice cream.
    Recently, Ljubljanica river is navigable, and you can take a ferry boat and explore the city and the surroundings from water side.

    Cankarjevo nabre��je

    To the south of Tromostovje near Ljubljanica river there is most beautiful pedestrian zone of Ljubljana. It hosts numerous cafes and some interesting shops. It is great place to walk. During weekend art and antique fair take place here.

    Start on Preseren square and walk Ljubljanica river as long as you like. Use bridges to cross it and cafes to enjoy it.

    Late afternoon mirrored in the Ljubljanica

    On a summer night, Ljubljana is on parade here, walking up one side of the river and down the other. The banks were redesigned by Joze Plecnik. Cafes line the banks with promenades. Small boats and ducks course on top of the river.

    I can characterize the general mood of Ljubljana's architecture in this part of town as "shabby chic". The houses are not in the greatest state of repair, with some paint chipped, etc - but it looks very cool and cozy.

    Ljubljanica

    You must - and will, there's no way out ;) - stroll along the banks of Ljubljanica - the true center of the town. I just never wanted to leave. Closer to the Preseren Trg, it is bustling with cafe-life, but further out it is quieter and more peaceful.

    Bridges across Ljubljanica...

    Bridges across Ljubljanica river
    There are 3 Bridges across Ljubljanica river that are nice to see: the Thriple Bridge (a central bridge for traffic and 2 side bridges for pedestrians) lies at the heart of the city and is a picturesque gateway to the old town - this masterpiece was the work of our famous architect Joze Plecnik, who also worked in some other European capitals, most notably in Prague, where his imprint can be seen, among other things, on the Hradcany castle. The Shoemaker's Bridge is a few hundred meters upstream and was also redesigned by Plecnik. Last but not the least, there is the Dragon Bridge at the other end of the central market-place with four statues of dragons, symbols of our city, sitting at each end. The picture shows the pedestrian bridge in Three Bridges. In the back there is the pink baroque St. Francis church.

    Enjoying & relaxing

    You can do a walk along Ljubljanica river banks and stop in one of the numerous streetcafes. One of the most popular of them (especially with younger people and in the summer) is Macek. You can't miss it, since it's usually quite crowded. If you come in the winter, you can get warm in the nearby Tea House, where they serve all kinds of brands of tea. They also have very good apple Strudel.

    Strange Bridge over Ljubljanica

    The bridge I'm talking about

    The next bridge from Dragon Bridge to the east is this strange bridge which is probably built for pedestrians only. Check it out, perhaps you can find out some more of it than I did.

    Ljubljanica River

    This is where most of the people come to have a coffee, a cold beer, lunch or just walk along the water and relax.
