Welcome to the boutique and charming Ljubljana, the proud European Green Capital 2016
In the past decade, Ljubljana has turned into a lively and exciting city for both visitors and residents. As part of its development vision, the city center was closed for traffic and pedestrian areas were visibly enlarged, transforming the city centre into a spacious and comfortable urban space that functions as a cozy living room. This area is filled with cafes, restaurants and green surfaces where visitors can meet locals and enjoy the vibe of the city. Its best benefit is the petiteness, with just everything within walking distance. The residents love to ride their bikes to the green areas in and around the city, so we encourage the visitors to join us in this new green endeavour. A popular bike-sharing scheme, BicikeLJ, is a handy way to do so. Along the Ljubljanica riverbanks one can also find quieter, even romantic spots, under the shade of weeping willows from where a view unfolds on the passing boats, canoes and trendy stand up paddlers. A city with a high cultural profile and a number of international festivals, Ljubljana also offers over one thousand free open-air events in the city centre every year – so enjoy our vibrant green city!
