Most of my time in Slovenia was spent in the capital, the beautifully-named Ljubljana. I know it sounds like a real cliché to say it's a charming city, but it truly is! Perhaps I was just blessed with sunny blue skies and a good summer mood, but I really felt at home there. There are several interesting bridges crossing the river right in the centre of town - including the Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most) which you can see on the left (with me in full-on travel mode clothing!) and the Triple Bridge (Tromostovje) which, as you might guess, is kind of three bridges all in a row together. A general wander around the Old Town area of Ljubljana is definitely a pleasant way to while away a few hours - I stumbled across a great farmers market too (so if you're wondering what's in that paper bag I'm clutching, I'm pretty sure that it was a big bunch of grapes!).
