As we've covered in previous posts, Slovenia's capital Ljubljana is a mecca for foodies. Visitors are really spoilt for choice, with plenty of modern eateries serving exciting and inventive cuisine from all over the world, as well as lots of places to sample more traditional Slovenian cuisine.
How to build my perfect European town. Add to one part old world history a dash of chic modernity. Let it age into a unique culture. Drizzle in a beautiful river and sprinkle with romantic night lights. Top with an epic castle. Keep cool with comfortable weather and serve at reasonable prices.
Bordered by some very well-known neighbours the likes of Italy, Croatia, Austria and Hungary, it would be easy to overlook or at least underestimate Slovenia. But during our short visit, the small Central European country became one of our favourite places in the world.

Slovenia's petite capital is a pretty Central European city set on the bend of a river and overlooked by a medieval hill castle. Really pretty. Drop-dead gorgeous.
