Ljubljana Castle (Slovenia)

In the heart of Europe lies Slovenia, and in the heart of Slovenia there is this unbelievably cute and magical (capitol) city called Ljubljana. Both the city and its castle honor its dragon. But don’t worry, it has been defeated a long time ago.

If you  want to visit the caste, you should walk up the hill for roughly 15 minutes or take a 4-minute-ride on the funicular railway. Arriving at the castle, you can explore lots of interesting permanent and alternating exhibitions or take a stroll around the castle and watch the city peacefully from above. At the end of the day, enjoy the romantic sunset, beautifully highlighting the tip of the mountains.

Speaking of exhibitions, castle fans will find a wonderful mini castle exhibition in the lower level of the Ljubljanski Grad.
