Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and is a pleasant city located on the banks of the Ljubljanica River.   There are some interesting bridges and photo opportunities by the river as well.

Ljubljana Castle offers some nice views of the city as well as some history about Ljubljana.  The historic center of the city (by Mestni Trg) will give you a good picture of Slovenian life.

I  spend 2 weeks in Ljubljana, Slovenia, dinning every day out.
I liked most restaurant 'na gradu' (in the castle): http://www.nagradu.si/en/
Absolutely perfect place.
Great food:
  • »kranjska sausage« served with roasted potato and horse radish - this potatos are just marvellous;
  • roasted lamb leg from "bela krajina" region with root celery puré and chard- this meal was heavenly tasty!
  • also starters - their home-made salami was just great, as well as cheese dumplings with wild garlic and smoked cottage cheese.
good, reasonably priced wines & perfect service.

It's rather crowdy so I suggest to make reservation for evening.

For all the open minded ppl I suggest visiting "Metelkova Mesto", an ex-military barracks complex just by the railway station, which houses famous Celica Hostel and is a home to many artists studios (including Slovenian electronic music pioneers Laibach) and a whole bunch of different themed clubs with music repertoire ranging from newest electronic beats (techno, drum&bass, dubstep, dub, mnml, ...) to rock, punk, raggea,....
The gay/lesbinan community is strong with two distinct clubs.
Also featuring own Metelkova cuisine...
City in itself.
