Ljubljana is a small town measured by world standards; in fact it is also one of the smallest capital cities in one of the smallest countries and because of the influence of different cultures in the past, Ljubljana has a diverse architecture, people and cuisine. A translation of Ljubljana in Slovenian language means "the beloved".
Ljubljana has visible similarities to Vienna and Prague but without the hordes of tourists. This is not coincidental as all three were partially designed by the great architect Jože Plečnik, a local of Ljubljana. He was able to design the city much as he liked as the original city was devastated in 1895 by an earthquake.
Ljubljana sightseeing walking tour includes a local guide for a two hour stroll around the capital.
