    Ljubljana Things to Do

    We visited Ljubljana Castle for a third time. This time we went up by funicular. The castle was looking a lot better than last year. Especially the area behind it which was still in the process of being renovated last year. I was much more impressed with the castle on this visit than on previous ones.
