Backpacking Europe: Ljubljana

Reading time ~5 minutes

LUbijana

Ljubljana is the capital and largest city of Slovenia. A city quite unheard of with an unpronounceable name (Pronounced as [lyu-blya-na]), is very quaint and beautiful city in its own way. Ljubljana means “Beloved” in a literal translation.

It was quite some time that I had not visited any new city. I had a new friend coming over to Munich, so we planned a casual trip to Slovenia. Like always booked the overnight bus to Ljubljana and reached early morning and were greeted with snowfall.

It was quite cold and we decide to refresh in the nearby cafe. Near the bus stand, we found a Cafe and ordered a Hot chocolate. Talking about life in India and longing for masala Tea instead of Hot chocolate we left the cafe.

We reached The Triple bridge. The Triple bridge, as the name suggests, is a group of three bridges across the Ljubljanica River. From this centre, we have a small passway to reach to the Ljubljana castle.

The funicular was closed due to snow. We climbed the small hill to the castle top. Ljubljana Castle is a beautiful medieval fort with a lovely view of the city. Walking around the castle is free, but for the Museums, you have to pay.

After visiting the castle, We roamed around the city. Crossing the St. Nicolas Church we reached the Butcher’s bridge. This Bridge is beautifully filled with beautiful love locks.
