Ljubljanica River Tips (41)

Picturesque river walks

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.

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. Ask at the tourist office for the times of departure. Tickets for the tours are sold on the boats or at the tourist office.

Take a stroll along the banks of the river.

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.

Ljubljana

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.

Ljubljana

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.

Ljubljana

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.

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.

Ljubljanica River and Bridges

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.

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.

Ljubljanica River

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.

The river

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.
