36 Hours in Ljubljana
' ALEX CREVAR - The New York Times '
In the Slovenian capital, a car-free center, historic architecture, lots of green space and riverbanks lined with cafes, pubs and boutiques. A decade ago, after generations of cobblestone gridlock, Ljubljana expelled cars from its historic center. The heart of the Slovenian capital (population 289,000) returned to medieval speed and is now a pedestrian-only district punctuated by Secessionist and Baroque buildings, and connected by legend-laden bridges along the Ljubljanica River.
