As my hotel was just around the corner from the river, this was my first impression of Ljubljana. I first strolled along just after 9 am; Preseren Square hadn't quite 'come alive' and there were hardly any people around so I had this lovely, peaceful walk to myself. It is lined with beautiful, old buildings in pastel colours and is... More

Takes a clue from Amsterdam but its just one kind. Most importantly has all the flavour of love. Walking from Central.

The canal, the views around it, bridges and outdoor cafes are well worth a look. It's quote pretty, especially in Autumn as the colours are vivid and eye-catching.

The river through the centre of Ljubljana is one of the highlights of a visit to the city. It's best appreciated by just walking along the river banks. Through the old town section this is easily achieved as there's no vehicular traffic to contend with.

DO take a cruise; do order a glass of wine before you cast off :) A lovely respite from walking ... leisurely trip up & down the canal with lots to see.

We have really enjoyed spending time in and around the River Ljublijanica Kanal. The experience is difficult to describe, and certainly worth making an effort to take in.

The place to gather for food and drink. Every establishment has outdoor space with heaters and fur blankets to keep us warm and toasty. Most servers speak English and Slovenians are very warm and gracious people.

Ljubljanica river banks are beautiful scene in the middle of the city. Many attractions and important places are beside this river so this is a walk you must have in Ljubljana. Banks are very well arranged for walking. You have a wide range of cafes and restaurants for taking a rest.
