A weekend in Ljubljana

In November 2019, Danny and I travelled to Ljubljana in Slovenia for a weekend.

We flew from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol via Paris Roissy Charles de Gaulle to Ljubljana and back with KLM, HOP! and Air France.

As we just missed the airport shuttle bus to the city center and the next one was an hour later, we took a taxi to the InterContinental. That was 60 euros. Apparently taxi drivers from the airport outwards like to charge more. Even if the driver used a meter. I guess he chose another type of tariff.

Anyway, once checked in, we visited the Slovenian Railway Museum. Afterwards we enjoyed the club lounge, the pool and the canap├ęs in the lounge.

The next day we visited Ljubljana Castle and then toured the historic city center. Th three bridges including the Triple Bridge (Tromostovje) and the Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most) nicknamed the Mother-in-law Bridge.

We also walked to Republic Square and Parliament House and then Tivoli Park. In the late afternoon and evening we enjoyed the hotel. There’s a reason we pay for five-stars hotels.

Not too crowded

A day and a half in Ljubljana is too short. A second day would be welcome. There other sights I want ti see, even if “Ljubljana has no world-famous attractions, which is just great: there’s no need to hop from one place to another, taking photos and crossing the items on your checklist. You have all the time to stroll around and enjoy the city itself”, as Wikitravel puts it.
