With a population of less than 300,000, Ljubljana is one of the smallest European capitals. Slovenia was the first Yugoslav Republic to declare independence and has proactively sought greater links to the west and encouraged the growth in tourism.
Ljubljana reflects this ‘buzz of anticipation’ and has removed almost all relics to the grey communist past, creating a lively and beautiful city dominated by it’s 12th century castle, fully restored and now home to many summer events and festivals. The city also boasts numerous theatres, museums and galleries – indeed the city offers over 10 international festivals each year including: Ljubljana Summer Festival (Mid July – End September) Ljubljana Graphics Biennial (Mid June – End September) Ljubljana Jazz Festival (July)
Ljubljana enjoys 4 full seasons with warm summer temperatures between 23-25 °C (73 – 77 °F) and cold winters between 2-3 °C.
