Slovenia’s sophisticated capital, Ljubljana, is a delight, pleasantly compact and cluttered with fabulous Baroque and Habsburg buildings. Prosperous and elegant: the Slovene capital Ljubljana gracefully fans out from its castle-topped hill, the old center marooned in the shapeless modernity that stretches out across the plain. The city’s museums, galleries, and architecture are only part of the picture; above all, Ljubljana is a place to meet people and enjoy the nightlife.
