Falling in love with Ljubljana

Visiting Ljubljana in winter is a wonderful experience, the Austrian Times can confirm.

The Slovenian capital offers several museums but its bustling markets and the marvellous shops and individual art galleries which can be found in the labyrinth of its narrow old town streets are the city’s true sights.

Ljubljana seems hibernating around lunchtime when its vegetable and fruit markets are closed after a busy morning trade. However, the city reawakens in the evenings when young and old flock into its centre to meet friends at one of the many hip bars and cafés after a hard day’s work.

Walking up on castle hill to enjoy the view from the ancient building’s tower is a must do in this fascinating city which warms the heart when the nights get longer and cooler.

Ljubljana can be reached conveniently by car in just a few hours from Austria. Motorists should ensure to purchase a motorway toll sticker when crossing the border.

The Antiq Palace Hotel & Spa is the perfect place to stay at Ljubljana. Situated in the city centre, it is the best starting point for a discovery tour through the federal capital. Spacious, luxuriously equipped suites, an excellent breakfast and – last but not least – friendly and competent staff ensure a memorable stay. See www.antiqpalace.com for more information on one of the country’s finest hotels and call +386 838 967 00 to book a room.

The Austrian Times recommends travel guides for Slovenia by Polyglott and Baedeker. The "Polyglott on tour" edition ensures holidaymakers get a compact overview over the former Yugoslavian country’s attractions. The 110-page guide portrays the best places to relax, eat out and party. It also lists the internet addresses of spas, pubs, event venues and a weather and traffic information portal.

Those interested in more background information on Slovenia’s spas, castles and landscape are better off with Baedeker’s new 322-page guide. It includes numerous maps of city centres, great pictures of grottos and other attractions of Slovenia. The guide portrays tourism hotspots like Ptuj and Bled as well as all of the country’s ski resorts.
