Šmarna gora: route via Spodnja Kuhinja (669 m)

"The Roof of Ljubljana," the city’s favourite viewpoint


  • Distance 1941m

  • Duration 0:55h

  • Ascent 366m

  • Hight 669m

Anyone visiting Ljubljana who wants to feel like a local should climb Šmarna Gora (whose name in English means St Mary’s Mount). On fine days, particularly at weekends, this very popular hiking destination on the edge of Slovenia’s capital city can get quite crowded. In part (or above all) because of the fantastic view and the excellent gostilna (restaurant) at the summit.
