Growing, teeming with life, livable and beautiful with its small and quaint old town is Ljubljana of Slovenia! Given the location, Ljubljana offers itself as an excellent starting point for a journey on the road to the capital and the beauty of the Balkans. The cost of the vignette for a week is 15 euro well away from the proposed rates on larger cities. There is a relaxed atmosphere, clean city and young, the capital of Slovenia lends itself beautifully to a visit of two to three days. The advice is to spend most of your time in the old town, crowded cafes, with narrow streets and corners to discover.

The accommodation for backpackers and for those who want to stay unique should be Hostel Celica, near the train station and bus station which is located in Metelkova Mesto, an alternative cultural center of the city full of bars, clubs and all open spaces. The hostel itself is in a former prison the only notes are the size of the rooms which are rather small, and the cost. During the summer period they start from 23 € per night and per person for a place in a dormitory and then climb up to 30 € in a room for five. Breakfast, sheets, pillow and towels are included in the price anyway.

But do not worry, overall the city is very economical. Lunches and dinners will not be a problem as well as an aperitif. The evening has no shortage of attractions. The area at Hostel Celica is adjacent to downtown and all the local attractions and squares. Pushing you under the arcades of Tomsiceva Ulica here’s the Top Six Club. Admission is free and there are customers of all types. For those who love the genre’s it is worth it for the view from the terrace which is accessed via a charming glass elevator.

Finally there’s the Triple Bridge, Ljubljana Castle which can be accessed by funicular placed on top of the old town with its neighboring park, the Art Nouveau that is located near the Preseren Square to the bridge of the Dragons and around the Postojna caves. There is much more of this city to be discovered.
