Tivoli Park and Mansion, Ljubljana
It is just 10 minutes walk away from centre. Walk the park. Visit confectioner's near lake and buy great ice-cream they have there. Advice: if you order ice-cream by halves you get more (i.e. half of vanilla and half of strawbery).
There is Roznik hill above Tivoli that brings real forest almost into the city centre. You can walk to tavern on the top of the hill or to Mostec. Ask people for path!
Stroll around park Tivoli right in the centre of Ljubljana. Go see the CEKINOV GRAD. Tivoli is easy to reach, only 10 minutes from the main squre - Presernov trg.
This also a place to bring the children. There is a small playground by the lake and a nice cafe with ice cream and other sweets.
If you decide to get more active after a few scoops of ice cream you can burn your calories by walking ut the ROZNIK hill. It is a popular nearby hill for many Ljubljana residents.
This is just my swimming pool ticket. Nothing fancy but the swimming pool itself is nice. Big.
Nevertheless the fees are quite expensive ! I had to pay for one whole day's usage of the pool whereas I just wanted to use it for only a few hours.
I guess this pool in Tivoli Park attracted many people during the summer or maybe some good events were held here, hence the expensiveness of the ticket.
Still in Tivoli Park, I took another photo.
It is a leafy green park.
There are actually some nice places/excursions around this park, for example :
Tivoli Castle. Opened from 10 am to 6 pm.
Tivoli Recreational Centre, where there's a swimming pool & a sauna.
Roznik Hill, where you can climb up for some wonderful views of the city.
Zoological Garden, on the hill southern slope, contains some 800 animals from 120 species.
The Museum of Modern History. Tracing the history of Slovenia in the 20th century.
Unfortunately, after I had some few hours swimming at the Recreational Centre, I had to rush to take my bus to Bled.
Unlike the previous photo, all these photos I remember where I took them. In Tivoli Park.
I was looking for the swimming pool & it was on my way searching for the Pool that I came to these structures & statues.
There was also a ring where there was a roller skating competition was held on that morning.
Generously out of proportion to the city as a whole, Tivoli is a small green world right within its limits. A long promenade paced out by Plecnik lampposts (their glass globes invariably shattered) leads the way to Tivoli Mansion, with its notorious guard dog statues. First built in the 17th century, it's been home to Jesuits, bishops and an Austrian field marshal, and currently shelters the International Center for Graphic Arts. Also in the park are the Museum of Modern History, a recreation center and a major music venue. Continue walking through the forest, as far as the Rožnik Hill church or Ljubljana Zoo.
Most of the city is surrounded by forests and lots of trees, so it's only natural to have a really nice park in the city center. Tivoli Park is a great place to walk around and relax, have some lunch, and take a jog. It's a little ways out of town, but totally worth it, the landscaping is really nice and the park is well kept.
And last but not least go for a walk in the park Tivoli, cause it's also nice, especially on a sunny day.
Its just nice and good for relaxation.
You can take a walk through the park, feed squirrels and birds, watch playful dogs or just sit on a bench and enjoy peaceful moments in the sun.
If you get tired of walking, visit this large park and relax.
You'll find playgrounds there and a pond at the foot of the Rožnik Hill. There's also a small zoo.
