Once a thriving settlement of the ancient Romans, Ljubljana is the capital city of Slovenia, located in the heart of the country. It is also known as Europe’s Green Capital for its sustainable initiatives like the car-free city center, making it a paradise for pedestrians and cyclists. Because of its convenient location, it is also a great starting point for all of the best places to visit in Slovenia.

After a scenic drive from Koper to Ljubljana, you will start exploring the city with a passionate and knowledgeable tour guide, who will let you in on all of the interesting stories and show you the hidden gems, known only by the locals.

Together we will stroll the vibrant streets of the capital city and marvel at the unique architectural works conceived by Jože Plečnik and recently inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. 

On our Koper shore excursion, we will explore the best attractions in Ljubljana, like Prešern Square, Congress Square, and the Central Market, which is one of the largest farmer’s markets in Europe. We will also cross the famous Dragon bridge named after a local legend which claims Jason the leader of the Argonauts, founded the city when he vanquished a fearsome dragon on the site.

After the walking tour, you will have free time to explore the charming city on your own. An amazing way to see a panoramic view of the entire town is to visit the Ljubljana Castle, standing on Castle Hill above downtown Ljubljana. It is a key landmark of the city and houses a museum exhibition on Slovenian history. You can access it by foot or by a short ride with a funicular railway.

For an amazing experience and a different perspective of the town, you also take a boat ride on the Ljubljanica river. Many of the best sights in Ljubljana are located around the riverbank, so a cruise on the river is a great and relaxing way to discover them. We also recommend tasting traditional Slovenian cuisine, in one of the many astonishing restaurants in the city. 

If you are not sure where to eat or how to get to a site that you wish to visit, ask our local guides, who will be happy to provide you with the best tips. In the afternoon, we will return back from our Koper shore excursion with many new memories that will last a lifetime.
