Pod Turnom 4     05 Dec 2019

The rocky peaks of the Julian Alps may only be a 20-minute drive north of Ljubljana, but the Swiss Alps are even closer – just a short stroll from the city centre along the tree-lined lanes of Tivoli Park. Okay, so the 391m high Rožnik hill is not exactly the Matterhorn, but just a few step behind Tivoli Mansion you can find Švicarija, a storied café and restaurant whose name is Slovene for Switzerland. Originally opened in 1835 as Hotel Tivoli, it was not long before locals began referring to it as Švicarija due to it's distinctive architectural style, and for decades it served as a centre of Ljubjana's social scene. In the summer of 2017 it once again opened its doors to guests, and is a great spot to enjoy a quiet drink or light meal with splendid views of the park and Ljubljana Castle in the distance.
