Ljubljana - The Capital of Slovenia

Ok guys, a lot of you know I am from Slovenia, and since the country is not widely famous, I decided to write a card to kind of present it to you. So, I hope you will like my quick presentation of a capital of Slovenia, and also a place where I spent most of my time, because of studying. Ljubljana has no world-famous attractions, which is just great: there's no need to hop from one place to another, taking photos and crossing the items on your checklist. You have all the time to stroll around and enjoy the city itself. In the summer, its center hosts a number of city sponsored events, from children workshops and public playgrounds on the streets that get closed for traffic for the occasion, to Trnfest's off-beat street performances and musical events of all genres. In autumn it shows its academic face as it fills again by students of the state's largest university to whom the city owes much of its youthful character. Cold December days are warmed by thousand of lights, the new year's decoration conceived by local artists, and by food and drinks sold from street stands on the banks of Ljubljanica river. After surviving the boring gray remaining of winter, the city erupts again with spring flowers planted on its streets and crossroads. Located at the middle of a trade route between the northern Adriatic Sea and the Danube region, it was the historical capital ofCarniola, a Slovene-inhabited part of Austria-Hungary, and it has been the cultural, educational, economic, political, and administrative center of independent Slovenia since 1991. Ljubljana ("lyoob-lyAH-nah") is a charming city full of artists, museums, and galleries. With a population of 300,000, it is one of the smallest capital cities in Europe. The main language of the city is unsurprisingly Slovenian. Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian is generally understood by most people and frequently spoken fluently by adults, especially those over the age of 40. Most of citizens speak at least some English, many, especially those under age of 30, speak it fluently. It's also worth trying any major European language you speak as you just might be understood.
Triple Bridge (Tromostovje), designed by Jože Plečnik, consists of three separate picturesque bridges located next to one another. The neighboring Prešeren square with the statue of Slovenian greatest poet France Prešeren is the central location of downtown Ljubljana and a common meeting point. Across Ljubljanica to the left is Open Market and the Dragon Bridge.
Squeezed between the castle hill and Ljubljanica river is the old town with two squares, Mestni trg (City square) with the Robba fountain and the city hall behind it, and, further on, Gornji trg (Upper square). Well preserved medieval buildings now house local designer shops, and several popular cafes and restaurants. Although they may look creepy, the perfectly safe narrow lanes lead to charming little squares and buildings.
Zmajski Most (Dragon Bridge), completed in 1901, designed by Croatian Jurij Zainovich. It is guarded by four detailed dragon statues from the city's coat-of-arms. You have to be careful around the Dragon Bridge area, as it is on a major busy road just outside the pedestrian zone and near misses (and worse) between inattentive tourists and traffic are common.
Ljubljana Castle - You can catch the "tourist train" from the Triple Bridge to the castle, or walk up the (quite steep) hill to the castle. The tower has magnificent views all over the city. You can also see the Sava River and Kamnik Alps in the distance. Btw, I live just under the castle, so 10 minutes walk to to top.
Metelkova City - A self-declared autonomous culture place to gather for alternative artists, many subcultures and youth. What used to be a military barracks is now full of underground artists, bars and nightclubs. Metelkova can get crowded on Fridays and Saturdays. This is an awesome place to party.
Tivoli Park is the main city park. You can sit down on a park bench and enjoy the sun. There is also a childern's playground and a lot of paths to walk.
Ljubljana Zoo is considered one of the most beautiful Zoos of Europe. I don't this so, tho.
Ljubljana Botanic Garden is the oldest Slovene cultural, scientific and educational institution. It was founded in 1810, the time of the Illyrian Provinces, as a garden of native flora and a section of the Central School (École Centrale). In the garden is also tropical glasshouse.
So, this is a quick intrudaction to the Capital city of Slovenia, Ljubljana. It is a city worth visiting. It is suitable for younger and older generations. It is quite small (tho, the biggest city of Slovenia), so everything is reachable by your feet. We don't get a lot of famous people, like bands and singers here, because we are so small, tho Paris Hilton did came to Slovenia, but it was by mistake haha. I hope you like this card, I would be really happy if you like it, clip it and comment it, because I want people to see and get to know Ljubljana. And if you want it, I can post pictures and write about other beautiful, even more greeny places of Slovenia, I know @TerrecaRiley would love it! And if you guys (@marshalledgar @nicolejb @alywoah @onesmile @2littlelegs @allischaaff @NixonWoman @skee292 @shannonl5 @danidee @LauraFisher @buddyesd @LizArnone ...) every find yourself in Europe, somewhere near me, you are more than welcome to come and visit. We'll do some cocktails!

@rodiziketan yeah I wish money did not exist sometimes ! To stressful
@rodiziketan it looks beautiful. To me it seems a place where you would never feel like a stranger. Just by looking at the pictures and how you described the many festivals it seems you enjoy a trip where a person could explore and find a new adventure everyday.
@rodiziketan it's beautiful there I'd love to visit one day
This card was incredible!! I never really think about many places in Europe because the continent is so big and there's so many countries, but Slovenia's architecture looks INCREDIBLE. I especially love Zmajski Most. Can you see the castle from your house on most days? I bet the castle has an incredible view of the town.
@onesmile yeah, thhat the whole point of Ljubljana and Slovenia. No world known attractions, just travel and do it local style.

강형욱이 최근 거칠어지는 이유.jpg
최근 강형욱 유튭 보듬에서 올라온 이야기. (이 글에 나온 강형욱 텍스트는 대충 강형욱 심정, 의미를 해설하는 내용임. 실제 언급한 말은 아님) 아직 3개월 강아지인 카네코르소를 만난 강형욱.  근데 단이(귀잘림)목격 강형욱: (위생같은 소리하고 자빠졌네 미친) 근데 낯선환경이라서 자꾸 짖는 단테(카네코르소) 일단 입양계기, 키우는 곳을 알아보니 아파트에 1년 같이살고 그 후에 시골로 내려갈 계획이라 함. 강형욱: (........) 강형욱: (한숨) 그러니까 시골가면 아들이 주 보호자가 아니라 나이든 부모님이 주 보호자가 되야하는데... 즉, 보통 강아지들은 긴장해서 각종 카밍시그널을 보내거나 하는데 단테 이놈은 짖는걸로 자신의 낯섬, 긴장감을 해소하려고 하고있음. 이 짤에 나오는 그 개랑 같은 견종.gif 근데 카네코르소 만날때 강형육 옷이 똑같이 입었네 우연인가 돌려말하지만 진짜 강형욱이 하고싶은 말임.jpg 강형욱: (제정신이야? 미친) 역시 노모가 아니라 아들이 카네코르소 입양 주도 ㅋ 강형욱: (멧돼지 방어할려고 카네코르소를 키울바에 차라리 다른 대책을 강구하세요) 강형욱: 지금은 아파트라 집 실내에서 키우지만 시골내려가면 집에서 안키우고 외부 견사에서 키울거죠? 뻔하네 강형욱: 실.내.에.서.같.이.생.활.해.야.한.다.고.요!!!!!!!! 그 안이 넓고 집 크기가 크고 이런거 다 상관없다고!!!!!!!!!!!! 강형욱이 세나개때부터 부르짖었지만 여전히 사람들은 대형견을 실내에서 어케키움? ㅋ 이ㅈㄹ떨어서 지겨울듯 대형견이란이유로 외부에서만 놓고 키울거면 키우지 마! (근데 위 세나개 에피소드도 공교롭게 카네코르소 이야기였음 ㄷㄷㄷ) 강형욱 시니컬 최고조.jpg 동네 유명해진단 의미? 당연히 안좋게 유명해진단 의미! 이런식으로 또 만나겠네 ^^.gif 그와중에 1마리 더 입양하려는 아들상황과 그를 반대하는 노모 실황 중계.jpg 강형욱 인내의 숲.jpg 긴장하고 낯선 환경이 싫은 아기 강아지 3개월 카네코르소는 강형욱 무릎에 "마우스 펀치"(입으로 부딪혀서 싫음, 경고를 하는 의사표현) 를 함. 무는 것은 아니지만 으르렁과 같은 일종의 강한 경고의 행동. 즉, 시한폭탄이란 의미 강형욱: (알겠니? 니가 어떤 강아지를 입양했는지?) 강형욱: (내가... 지금 웃는게 웃는게 아니다^^ 어금니꽉..) 한국에 카네코르소 브리더.. 수준... 어휴 ^^ 부연설명: 카네코르소는 도시와 같은 사람들이 붐비는 환경에 익숙하기 힘든 견종이다. 시골처럼 넓은 집과 마당이 없는 도시라서 그런 것이 아니라 외부인이 자주 드나드는 그런 붐비는 환경 자체를 적응하기 어려워하는 견종. (집 크기가 작은 아파트의 환경을 지적하는게 아니다.) 그렇기에 강형욱 반응이 이런 것. 생각이 많아진 강형욱.jpg 다시한번 유전적 성격에 대해 설명하는 강형욱.jpg 결국 강형욱 빡침.jpg 이러고 잠시 있더니 다시 감정을 삭히고 이성의 끈을 붙잡음 그동안 ㅈ같이 개키우는 ㅅ들을 너무많이 만나서 내가 솔직히 날 찾아온 님을 봐도 기대가 전혀 안되고 굉장히 부정적인 결과만 예상됩니다. 진짜 나 내 속마음 솔직하게 말할게요. 세나개 시절에 비해 요즘 강형욱이 거칠어보이는 진짜 이유.jpg 이때 단테가 안쓰럽게 낑낑거리기 시작.jpg 보면 고개를 돌리는 카밍시그널도 하는 단테 (낯선환경에 대한 긴장감 해소를 원하는데 앞선 마우스펀치와 달리 매우 평화롭고 예의바르게 대화하는 행위) 근데 날 찾아온거보면 적어도 무개념 보호자는 아니니까.. 사실 개들은 자동차 오토바이 사람 막 지나다니는 복잡한 변수가 많은 환경을 좋아하지 않아요. 한적하고 조용한 환경을 좋아하죠. 출처 : 펨코
