Ljubljana is Europe’s little secret. This small capital city (less than 300,000 inhabitants) is perhaps suprisingly big in terms of architecture, and the variety of its built history makes it a mandatory stop in your architectural journey. From richly painted churches to sobering Brutalism. From classical Baroque and Habsburg inspired-architecture to delightful Art Nouveau façades and interiors. And of course, abundant greenery (Ljubljana is Slovenia’s – and now Europe’s – green capital) and food. This guide will help you taste it all.
Special thanks to Tina from Visit Ljubljana and my friend Philipp Heer with whom we organised the trip to this delightful area of Slovenia, where I could discover – for the first time – many Slavic charms and architectural gems. Anything interesting in terms of architecture is here. If you find any mistakes, or have any suggestions please let me know in the comments. My intention is to keep it useful. Hope you enjoy!
