Exploring Ljubljana on One Hot, Summer Day

Slovenia, Ljubljana Guide (B): Exploring Ljubljana on One Hot, Summer Day

Ljubljana is one of the coolest capital cities I’ve been to in Europe. It is green, charming and has such a fun name! It is not a world-famous city and doesn’t have any must-visit attractions, but maybe that’s exactly why I loved the city! Our stop in Ljubljana was a part of the motorcycle tour last summer. We only had about a day in Slovenia which we spent visiting Ljubljana, nearby Lake Bled and driving by the rest of the country leading to Austria.

This small Slovenian capital that still seems to be off tourist radars, took me by surprise as I found it to be more charming than I had expected. Today I am sharing some of the sights we visited in Ljubljana in a day.

Dragon Bridge is one of the more famous bridges above Ljubljanica river. You’ll find the concrete bridge near Ljubljana old town. The main attraction of the bridge are the four dragon statues at its four corners.

The bridge was built on 20th century when the city was a part of Austro-Hungarian empire. Dragon Bridge is a well-known landmark of Ljubljana and you’ll see many souvenirs portraying dragons in gift/souvenir shops. In fact I bought a wooden fridge magnet in the shape of a dragon as a souvenir from Slovenia.  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
