Ljubljana is one of the safest capitals in the world. We're aware that everywhere claims this, but the only prevalent crime here is bicycle theft (which we cleverly avoided by adorning our bike with flowers) which is unlikely to affect short term visitors to the city. Nowhere in the city is unsafe to walk at any hour, although if you're by yourself it's probably best to avoid certain parts of Tivoli Park in the middle of the night. The only real threat to safety in the city comes from out-of-control cyclists and negligent drivers not paying attention to pedestrians. Perhaps a secondary menace are slow-to-react automatic doors that seem to be installed in shops across Ljubljana - causing hurried consumers much grief, the rare minor injury and major embarrassment.
