Ljubljana is a beautiful city to visit and this apartment was perfect for our stay. Located right along the river in Old Town it's within walking distance to all the sights, shops and restaurants. The apartment is newly renovated and well appointed. Highly recommend for a stay.

Quite lovely.

  • 5 of 5

We are four women friends of retirement age, who stayed at Castleview in early June. The apartment is lovely, well appointed, beautifully remodeled and in a good location for exploring the Ljubljana sights. We knew ahead of booking that it was a fourth-floor apartment with no elevator, but bringing our suitcases up the stairs wasn't as challenging as we thought it might be - stairs are wide with lots of landings in which to rest and/or let others pass. We loved our stay at this apartment.

Set close to the Ljubljanica River in the heart of the Old Town, there could not be a better location for exploring this pretty magical city....

Consider what you know of European capital cities. Crowded, expensive, dirty, full of tourists, intimidating? In comparison Ljubljana is a breath of fresh air. A capital city that is tourist friendly yet lacking hordes of tourists; a city that’s full of things to do and places to explore yet can be navigated on foot and even condensed into a long weekend; a city that’s modern and cosmopolitan yet retains its own individual charm and character. Though it’s often described as ‘Prague in miniature’ such comparisons don’t do justice to Slovenia’s capital; few stag groups come this way and those that do tend to come to enjoy a mixture of the outdoors life and the relaxed friendly atmosphere of Ljubljana’s old town rather than strip clubs and drinks promotions.

If there was an exam for a capital city Ljubljana would pass with flying colours. But then lots of capital cities have history, culture, good food and great hotels in abundance, so what makes Ljubljana so distinctive? Partly it’s the youthful vitality of the city: during term times the population of Ljubljana swells by ten per cent as thirty thousand students come to study at the city’s university. Young entrepreneurs are starting to make their mark on the city with new start ups in all sectors but especially in new media, design and hospitality.

The summer is packed with a varied calendar of events, many of them taking place in the open air; with so many handsome city squares and parks, Ljubljana is the perfect city for such events. The Ljubljana Festival is the summer’s chief event and it has been going for over 60 years. Between the end of June and the beginning of September there are theatrical performances, art exhibitions and musical concerts in venues throughout the city. If this event has a somewhat highbrow feel, then August’s Trnfest might be more appealing; this free of charge arts festival takes place on the streets of Trnovo, a bohemian district on the north bank of the Ljubljanica River and has a relaxed, alternative vibe. They might have culture by the bucketful but Ljubljana’s active population likes to play hard too and for many that means cycling, hiking or running. The city holds a traditional running marathon as well as a similar event for cyclists. To the north of the city centre Tivoli Park is the green lungs of the city, and every Sunday you’ll see plenty of walkers there tackling the twin hills of Cankar Peak and Siška Hill which together are known as Rožnik. Just forty minutes away by road, Krvavec is the closest ski resort to the capital; it’s also only quarter of an hour from Ljubljana’s Brnik International Airport which means keen skiers can be on the slopes almost as soon as they arrive. Spectator sports are popular and September 2013 saw Ljubljana’s brand new Stožice stadium play host to the final stages of the European Basketball Championships.

Ljubljana is a city of cafes and in the summer months the whole of the old town becomes one giant pavement cafe as the owners bring out the chairs, tables and sunshades. Slovenians love to stop for a coffee, a wine spritzer or even a beer and to catch up on the gossip; it’s a way of life that’s easy to get used to. On Sunday mornings in summer it feels like the whole town has come out for a walk along the Ljubljanica; after a stroll round the flea-market it’s time to stop for a coffee and an ice cream. Comparisons with other European cities are easy to make. A wealth of elegant secessionist and baroque buildings gives Ljubljana much in common with other central European cities but Ljubljana has one thing the others don’t have: Jože Plečnik. Born in Ljubljana in 1872, Plečnik studied architecture in Vienna and worked initially in Prague where, among his commissions, he re-modelled the city’s castle. It’s said that the Czechs didn’t take too kindly to this Slovene upstart who came and landed all the best jobs. On his return to Ljubljana in 1921 he was made Professor of Architecture at the university, and set about re-designing the city: as well as some completely new buildings, he oversaw the re-design and renovation of some existing ones, most notably the famous Triple Bridge. Plečnik used the elements of classical architecture such as columns and balustrades and interpreted them in a new way: after only a short time in the city, visitors can usually identify his distinctive style. Highlights of Plečnik’s body of work include the former national stadium at Bežigrad, the magnificent Žale cemetery and the Križanke Summer Theatre, the latter being a former monastery and seat of the Teutonic Knights, and today the headquarters of the Ljubljana Festival. Plečnik’s house, in the Trnovo district, has been preserved as a museum and provides a fascinating insight into the man and his work. In Ljubljana the old sits comfortably with the new.
