60-second guide to Ljubljana airport

in its own head

"We're a small city, but we beat with the heart of a nation.”

but more realistically

Ljubljana is indeed pretty small but as Slovenia’s capital, its history, culture and the warmth of its people are on a grand scale.

the vibe

So much here dates back years, and there's an obvious pride taken in caring for the city's heritage. Meanwhile, hip shops, bars and cafes keep things forward-looking.

the natives

A welcoming bunch, with an academic flair. They're skilled at languages and over 50,000 of the population are students.

the weather

Winter sees temperatures drop below freezing, while July and August average an agreeable 25 degrees.

the local speciality

If horse burger doesn't quite get your mouth watering, how's about skutina pecena - a cheesecake made with egg?

the celebrity

British royals Her Majesty the Queen and H.R.H Prince Philip have visited Ljubljana.

did you know?

Slovenia had central Europe's first democracy, getting into the swing of power sharing in the 7th century. It was a model copied by Thomas Jefferson when he was writing the United States Declaration of Independence.

they say

"The great museums and galleries, atmospheric bars and varied, accessible nightlife make it a wonderful, relaxed place to visit and stay awhile." - Lonely Planet
