Given the fact that we got very little sleep we were anything but excited to arrive to Ljubljana. Must check a thesaurus, because I can only repeat myself that it was very cute. As usual there is a castle, looking over a little river and with the older parts of the city below. I'd like to mention a thing here that was awfully sympathetic for us about Slovenia. Most countries are loaded with references to politicians/war people printed on money or placed as statues on public squares. Slovenian paper money is a showcase of Slovenian artists and scientists. So are their public spaces, including the main square in Ljubljana which features a favorite architect of the city. From this square there is a triple bridge over the river as well as walking streets which on the balmy Monday night were loaded with musicians (tango group, a Floridian playing diverse American music...) and strolling locals. At the same time there was also concert up in the castle. Ljubjana is definitely worth a stop.
