    Ljubljana in the heat

    July 19, 2017 in Slovenia

    Ljubljanas streets are all empty on a hot day like this. But who's to blame? We also took our time in the shadows. In the evening the city seemed to wake up. To the sound of a Schwitz brassband on the corner of a beautifull bridge known as the Triple Bridge. And we finally found a margarita! (Next to a square with homemade rain (!)) The weird-looking cake-thing is a traditionally kind of dumbling which we had to try, and it was sooo good with cardamom filling and honny all over it! The Danish cinnamon roll is not competable.Read more

    Preseren and Congress Square

    October 30, 2016 in Slovenia

    In Ljubljana, our guide took us to the city's two main squares. The pink building is the Franciscan Church of the Annunciation, originally built in the 17th century and given its baroque facade in the 18th century. A monastery dating back to the 13th century is attached; it houses thousands of medieval manuscripts. Also pictured is the Triple Bridge leading to Preseren Square, the University of Ljubljana, and the Academie Philharmonica (which was established in 1701, but was completely rebuilt after 1895 earthquake.)Read more

    Ljubljana

    October 30, 2016 in Slovenia

    All in all, Ljubljana was a neat little town that we would not mind visiting again — but only if Carole gets to spend more time in Lake Bled, too! During our time in Ljubljana, we ate at a busy restaurant to sample the local fare. Unfortunately our time at the restaurant precluded visiting more of the city, including the Ljubljana castle (pictured on the hill); the structure was rebuilt in the 15th century and added onto for the next two centuries. Archaeological surveys, notably, indicate the area was continuously settled since 1200 BC; there is believed to have been some type of fortress there since the 12th century AD. There is so much history in that city, and we had so little time to discover all of it!Read more
