What are the most overlooked sights in Ljubljana?
RIVERBANK ŠPICA: the Ljubljanica splits into two here, and later joins again on the other side of the city. CEMETERY ŽALE: the famous architect Jože Plečnik left his mark here, tourists usually only know the centre of Ljubljana, which is also his work. NEBOTIČNIK - the Skyscraper: built in 1933 it was one of the tallest buildings in Europe before World War II. LJUBLJANSKO BARJE: a natural park with wildlife and bird watching, it's an ideal place for cycling. TIVOLI PARK: ideal for walking, just 10 minutes from the city centre. LJUBLJANA ZOO: good for families. CEMETERY NAVJE: a lot of famous Slovenian musicians, poets and other artists are buried here.
What is the strangest request you've ever received from a guest?
An older lady asked if I could watch her dog while she went shopping - and I had a reception full of people! And once on the nightshift (around 02:00) a guest called my colleague and asked him if it was possible to make a dinner for him!?
Which nearby town makes the best day trip (besides Bled or Postojna)?
Ptuj (castle, the city itself); Portorož, Piran, Koper (the entire seaside); Kranjska Gora with Planica (hosts the FIS ski jumps each year); Idrija (mining, Idrijska Čipka); Bohinj (a beautiful alpine lake).
What is one piece of advice you would give to all visitors?
Although Slovenia is a geographically small country, we have a lot to offer - did you know that 51% percent of Slovenia is covered with forests? In the early spring you can ski in the mountains in the morning and swim in the sea in the afternoon on the coast. People are very friendly and always prepared to help. In short: You will get much more then you expect!
