Excellent Photos of Ljubljana

Enjoy these excellent photos from Ljubljana.

Ljubljana is an exceedingly pleasant city that sits on the banks of the Ljubljanica river.  This 300,000 person capital of Slovenia was once part of Yugoslavia.  The city is highly walkable and well-preserved but lacking any must-see landmarks.

This is the view of Ljubljana from the castle that overlooks the capital with the Alps in the background.
