Slovene Ethnographic Museum, housed in a sleek glass building, located near the cool alternative culture center Metelkova mesto, does a great job of introducing visitors of all ages to Slovenian heritage and culture, as well as cultures of several other peoples of the world. But that’s just one of the reasons to visit.
When winter slowly creeps into our little land, it’s easy to push outdoor activities aside, especially with the harsher weather outside. But let me tell you a secret. As hard it is to believe, a trip above the foggy lowlands of Central Slovenia usually surprises with sunshine and a true winter wonderland. The most easily accessible mountain idyll to experience sledding, snowshoe walking, skiing, and other winter activities close to Ljubljana? Velika Planina.
If you are visiting the capital of Slovenia with kids, your itinerary should definitely include a few fun hours spent at the lovely Ljubljana Zoo.
With summer temps in town, it’s either chilling in a shade or enjoying invigorating water activities to keep you cool through the heat. A stretch of the Sava River on the northern fringes of Ljubljana offers a most exciting white-water rafting and kayaking suitable for anyone who wishes to unveil a whole new perspective of the green capital.
