Ljubljana is considered one of Europe's greenest and most livable capitals. Car traffic is restricted in the city center, so you have all the time to stroll around and take in the sights.
The old city, Baroque buildings and the castle are located on the east side of the Ljubljanica river, while the new city with modern commercial buildings lie to the west of the river.
Ljubljana has a youthful character and an active clubbing and cultural scene, thanks to the presence of the state's largest university. The city is also heavily influenced by nearby Italy.
Ljubljana is a budding location for digital nomads. Internet speed is fast, cost of living is also relatively low. There are plenty of cafes to work from, although not all are work-friendly. If you are keen to network with entrepreneurs, Poligon to Tobačna is an area concentrated with startups and entrepreneurs.
Ljubljana is one of the safest cities in Europe, but common sense is still necessary. Tivoli Park is generally very safe and a popular destination, but just as anywhere in the world it is recommended that you avoid visiting the park alone late at night.
During the summer in Ljubljana (June to August), there are many events and festivals about the history and culture of the city. It is also the peak tourist season, so expect prices to be higher.
Spring is a great time to visit as the weather can be warm and the city isn't overly crowded with tourists.
