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.
Visit the Idrian Lace Sales Gallery. The Slovenian town of Idrija is famous for its superb lace and this capital outlet stocks the best. Mestni trg 17
Go to Krakovo. Old ladies tend their vegetables, while hipsters chill in the cafes and restaurants, with a view of Ljubljana Castle.
Escape to Bohini. Many visitors flock to Bled, but its big brother is also a dramatic mountain oasis that offers excellent hiking. An hour and a half away by bus.
