Welcome back to Beautiful Spaces—a series of posts in which I talk about the apartments, hotels, hostels, & B&Bs I stay in during my travels. It all started in 2013 when I realized that my contentment on the road is directly connected to how much I love where I’m living…and so made a commitment to find beautiful spaces to call home along the way. The owners of this lovely apartment were kind enough to extend a discount in exchange for this review. As always, all opinions are my own.
After three months in Bosnia, this August Chad, Luna, and I took a series of taxis and trains to one of my top two favorite European capital cities: Ljubljana, Slovenia.
It was my second time in the city and I loved it just as much as the first. From its cobblestone, pedestrian-only old town to its artisanal gelato shops to its sprawling parks, so big that there are ski jumps hidden in their valleys.
As usual, we spent our month in a nice Airbnb apartment in a local neighborhood–one we’d definitely recommend for anyone traveling to Ljubljana.
The apartment is located just a couple blocks from the massive Tivoli Park, about 10 – 15 minutes by bike from the city center. There’s a city bike stand just up the block for those who want to commute by bike and there’s a parking lot in the building (though do check with the owners about whether a parking space is included) if you’re traveling by car.
The apartment itself is wonderfully bright and sunny and welcoming with floor-to-ceiling windows and an enormous outdoor balcony with a sun shade and a large swing for good weather days. The building is quiet and the street is residential, not far from the main road where you’ll find grocery stores, pharmacies, and any other city amenity you may need, but tucked away just far enough to be peaceful and quiet.
The bed is large and comfortable, the bathroom modern, the kitchen well stocked with all the utensils, pots, and pans you may need. The owners of the apartment are kind, cheerful, and responsive.
If you’re planning a trip to Ljubljana, we definitely recommend it.
