Cheap flights to Ljubljana
Slovenia’s capital is one of the best-kept travel secrets in Europe.
Often described as Prague in miniature, minus the crowds, compared to Salzburg for its setting and Vienna for its architecture, this city is a hodgepodge of European styles. But this is Central Europe after all, so expect plenty in the way of Baroque and Renaissance buildings and, of course, an old town packed with café-lined squares. And with a hilltop castle, a snaking emerald-green river and a surrounding countryside of hilly woodland, settings really don’t get much better than this.
Malalan is a classy jeweller in the heart of the Old Town, and the place to go if you are looking to impress someone really special (Mestni Trg, tel: 01 421 7740).
The bohemian Trnovo district is a favourite with artists and students, who enjoy its relaxed canalside bars and cafes, plus the lack of tourists.
