Ljubljana’s status as one of Europe’s smallest capitals in no way holds it back. As well as hosting over 10,000 cultural events every year – including international music and arts festivals – it offers plenty to engage the curious traveller, including a medieval hilltop fortress. The city is centred around the winding Ljubljanica River, dotted with cafes, townhouses and the enormous Tivoli Park. Explore the best of Slovenia’s capital with our guide to the unmissable sights in town.
52 varieties of wine grow in Slovenia’s three wine-producing regions, many of which have received the highest accolades at international shows. This two-hour experience with Wine Tasting Ljubljana is held in a 300 year-old cellar and led by English-speaking sommeliers. You’ll sample several varieties from all three regions, accompanied by snacks and expert commentary on the country’s wine-growing history and culture. You’ll also receive a take-home souvenir and a certificate awarding you the title of “Ambassador of Slovenian Wine”.
