The Ljubljana Guide Book

This 112-page guide is ad-free and packed with enough info for weeks of exploring our fair city.

The tongue twisting capital of Slovenia is the figurative and (almost) literal centre of the country, with nearly three times more inhabitants than any other Slovene city and an even larger share of its commercial, administrative, cultural and educational activity.

The Slovenia Winter Map

A concise and indespensible guide to your winter holiday
Slovenia's top winter destinations, events, ski resorts and thermal spas

Of course for many people the winter is synonymous with hitting the slopes, and there are very few countries in the world (if any) where skiing is a more popular pastime than in Slovenia.
