Winter in Ljubljana


The autumn is a special time to visit Ljubljana, and we're not just saying that because we're contractually obligated to do so, we sincerely mean it! Why? We're glad you asked. For starters, when your city has more green space per resident than any other capital or major city in Europe, you've also got more material with which that venerable lady, Mother Nature, can work her colourful autumnal magic. Not into nature? Who can blame you these days. What about one of the most cherished and sacred products of nature then? We're talking about wine of course, and the autumn months is when it always seems to flow most freely (not that that's a problem at other times). Then of course there are some of our favourite events of the year taking place as well, all of which you can read about starting on page 11.

Any visiting (or resident) gourmands have also lots to look at this issue, as in addition to our usual restaurants chapter, we've also included the results of our recently completely Best Restaurants in Ljubljana competition (p 17), with thousands of local readers voting for their favourite spots to dine, as well as a special feature with some of Slovenia's top Gourmet destinations (p 40). And if you're planning to get out of town for a day or even longer, you can find three of our favourite alpine getaways in the Highlights of Slovenia (p 68).

Still not impressed, well perhaps we could interest you in some world-class, top quality, 100% organic fog then, which not only blankets the city most morning between now and Easter, but is completely free to enjoy! As always we appreciate any and all feedback from our readers, so don't hesitate to send us an email, message on Facebook or Instagram, or simply spell out whatever it is you've got to say using the heaps of autumn leaves in Tivoli Park and then invite us on an early morning hot air balloon ride over the city - whatever is easiest.

A free PDF download of our latest guide to Ljubljana can be found here, and with over 400 distribution points in the city (and surrounding area) you’re never far from a print copy.
