As its inhabitants and numerous visitors will tell you, Ljubljana is, indeed, a people-friendly city. Categorised as a medium-sized European city, it offers everything a metropolis does yet preserves its small-town friendliness.
The capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, is situated at the altitude of 296 m above the sea level, in a hollow cut through by Ljubljanica River. The city has a population of about 280,000 and is an important political, cultural and geographical center of the country.
This little but very beautiful city is situated on the two banks of Ljubljanica. The Old Town on the right bank of the river, which has been preserved since the medieval times, is most well-known because of its castle, “Ljubljanski Grad,” founded between the 10th and 11th century and rebuilt in the 17th century in the baroque style which dominates this part of Ljubljana.
