If you’ve opened the internet lately you’ve certainly noticed that Ljubljana is becoming one of the most visite cities in Europe. If you’ve looked around our blog, you’ve most certainly noticed that it’s amongst our most favorite places also. Why so? There are many reasons but one of the most blog post worthy one is the views Ljubljana offers to its visitors.
With so many drone pictures lately, the desire to capture the beauty of cities from a bird’s eye is becoming stronger, and stronger by the day. But let’s be fair – there are multiple negative sides to drone photography. The key minus is having to carry it around. These things are heavy and if you’re trying to travel light they can be quite problematic. I guess I don’t need to tell you that they are also quite pricey.
Luckily, most European capitals have at least one place offering a panoramic view of the city and Ljubljana is no exception. But which are the places with the best views of Ljubljana? In this article we’ll try to answer this exact question. If you think we miss a spot, make sure you leave us a comment!
1. The tower of the Ljubljana’s castle
Standing proud in the heart of the city, the castle of Ljubljana is definitely worth paying a visit to. What’s most, the tower offers one of the most spectacular, 360-degrees view of the Slovenian capital and will have you absolutely enchanted.
2. The park around Ljubljana’s castle
Many people who visit the Ljubljana castle do the brutal mistake of taking the lift. Apparently someone wrote on TripAdvisor that the walk is too long. This is by no means true! The walk to the castle is rather short and it takes you through the park surrounding it which is absolutely astonishing. Nonetheless, the view of Ljubljana through the branches of the trees is perhaps one of the most romantic ones we can imagine.
3. Neboticnik (Ljubljana’s skyscraper)
The combination of the sky’s changing colors during sunset, and a cold beer (or another beverage of your choice) will certainly make you remember your stay in Ljubljana forever. This is why we strongly recommend a drink at Neboticnik. If you want to spend more time there you can even have dinner and move down to the night club (a level below the restaurant) later in the evening.
