What to See on a Day Trip to Skofja Loka, Slovenia, Skofja Loka, Slovenia (B)

Slovenia may be a fantastic destination for the outdoors, but that doesn’t mean its small towns are any less enchanting. My recent trip reminded of some other destinations in Slovenia that I haven’t really written about, including the absolute gem that is Skofja Loka. Just a short distance northwest of Ljubljana, Skofja Loka is full of the kind of charming sights you expect from a pretty European town near the Alps. Best of all, a day trip to Skofja Loka gives you ample time to see the towns sights. So, if you’re curious about what you can see with your day trip from Ljubljana, this is what you have to look forward to.

While you’ll want to head to the Old Town of Skofja Loka, that first means crossing the Selska Sora river. That’s not such a bad thing as the riverfront is quite scenic with lots of greenery. In fact one of the most iconic sights of Skofja Loka is the view along the river towards the Capuchin Bridge.

Although the Capuchin Bridge is the most picturesque of the bridges in town, you actually get better views of the riverfront from the next bridge along.It was a view like the one above that first brought this town to my attention and why I wanted to visit Skofja Loka. Little did I know that this one spot barely scratched the surface of what to see in Skofja Loka. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
