Capital Ljubljana – impossible to ignore

Ljubljana is not just the main host city of the Championship but also the capital of Slovenia. It is marked by its location in the centre of Slovenia, from where it takes only one hour to drive to all the other parts of the country. If you are not staying in Ljubljana during the Championship, you should at least take half a day to visit it! Ljubljana is impossible to ignore!

Let’s start the day with a walking tour of Ljubljana`s beautiful and mysterious streets. There is a unique architectural appearance to the city, particularly due to its mixture of Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture with masterful creations by the 20th century architect Jože Plečnik.

Enjoy the picturesque capital of Slovenia as we walk through the old town along the Ljubljanica River, across the fabulous bridges and continue the walk between the green castle hill and the market square. We finish our walk with a view from Ljubljana Castle. We invite you to join us on this tour.
