City breaks with Balkan Holidays – Ljubljana, Slovenia

Apart from the summer package holidays to the best summer resorts of the Balkan region, we offer various city breaks to Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia and Romania as well.

Just call our Tailor Made department and we can arrange the ideal city break for you. One of the available cities to book for a city break is Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, a unique crossroad for the Germanic, Slavic and Latin cultures, built on the two banks of the Ljubljanica river.


On a short break, the most important things to see are the St Nicolas Cathedral, the Castle of Ljubljana, the Bishop’s Palace and the Triple Bridge.

As in many other cities of Europe, such as London and Paris, Ljubljana has also introduced its own bicycle rental scheme. There are some two dozens of bicycle docking stations throughout the city centre, a few hundred metres apart.

If you happen to be there on a Saturday, don’t miss the Ljubljana market, east of the Triple Bridge, where craftsmen sell their works under the arches just by the river, as well as florists, bakers and other marketers selling their goods on the square.

Balkan Holidays offer city breaks to a number of cities in the region. Check back for further tips for city breaks with Balkan Holidays!
