    Ljubljana castle is the city's premier tourist attraction, and draws the crowds all year round.

It is now a modern hotel built recently (opened in 2008) but that, for historic reasons kept the former facade (and that's its visual power). The original was built in 1910 to serve the high dignitaries of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. From 1983 to...
