First city to visit in 2013 - Ljubljana
The next morning after Rome we continued our trip and very soon found ourselves in a very small beautiful city of Slovenia - Ljubljana.
Ljubljana is the capital and largest city of Slovenia. With approximately 280 000 inhabitants, it classifies as the only Slovenian large town.
The town itself is very small. You can feel European spirit in it but in general it reminds of a Poland or Lithuania.
A monument of Fran Miklošič - Slovene philologist.
To be honest when you enter the city it looks really ugly. Absolutely nothing to see. This is until you enter the very center - the old town with the castle on top of the hill.
Very strange ATM. First thing that comes in mind - WTF? Maybe you have to pray for the money there :)
In the very center area you can witness lots of decorations. They remind more of the end of the world instead of the Christmas spirit. But I can imagine they will look awesome at night.
The cool thing about this old part of the town is that there were speakers hanged all around the city with beautiful Christmas music. What a cool idea. Makes walking around much more pleasant.
Another funny decoration. Lots of old shoes just hanging across the street.
Here is a closer look. You can see the castle on the background.
They look even cooler when the sun sets.
Then we've found a huge hat right in the middle of the street.
This is Gudar. That's all there is to say.
Some Disney friends celebrating New Years.
While we were eating, it got really dark, so we had a chance to admire all the decorations at night.
And boy was it worth it.
I have to admit. This is the best decorated town we have seen on our trip. You can't even compare it to Rome or Venice.
There's the castle in light blue color. It's a shame we didn't have time to go up and see it.
Small Christmas market with hot vine and nuts.
The darker it got, the more people appeared.
Very cool idea to show a photo frame in decoration as a hint for a cool scene. Can you see it?
Christmas evening in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Not as warm as it was in Rome.
Who would guess that in such a small town you can find the best Christmas spirit in Europe. Amazing.
And the decorations don't stop there. Parks are also quite interesting and unique. It was time to move on but we sure were glad to have visited such a wonderful city.comments powered by Disqus
