Not to miss: top 5 Ljubljana attractions

Ljubljana is often compared with Prague due to its beautiful architectural   appearance, which is the result of the legacy of different periods in history and, most notably, the work of the famous 20th century architect Jože Plečnik, who, among other things, prepared the town planning scheme for the central part of the city. Plečnik’s distinctive personal stamp, which can be seen across Ljubljana, is the most obvious in the area by the river Ljubljanica, where you can find one of his most famous creations, the Triple Bridge.

While Ljubljana is rather a small city you will find most of the attractions in walkable distance. As our own general manager once said: ‘’Ljubljana is small enough that you know everybody, but big enough to get lost.’’ If you stand in the middle of mail square, Prešeren square you will be able to see all our top attractions if you only rotate yourself around your own axis.

 

Triple Bridge (Tromostovje)

Why have only one bridge, where you can have three that form one of the unique attractions and Ljubljana’s most characteristic structures. The middle bridge that existed since 1842 was modified with two 1930s pedestrian bridges designed by Plečnik.

Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most)

It is said that since it opened in 1901, Zmajski Most has been locked in a fierce competition with the castle and the conspicuously pink Franciscan Church for the title of Most Photographed Sight in Ljubljana.

Ljubljana Castle (Ljubljanski Grad)

Perched on top of Castle Hill (Grajska planota) and dominating the city skyline. The current ensemble of buildings originates from necessary 16th-century reconstruction work following the earthquake of 1511, with several later additions.

The current main points of interest for the visitor are the Outlook Tower (Razgledni Stolp),the tower’s Virtual Castle screens a 12-minute film showing an interesting and informative history of the castle and a viewing platform (not for the faint hearted) with wonderful views of the city. In the corner of the courtyard is the diminutive St George’s Chapel (Kapela sv Jurija). The castle also has a small art gallery featuring temporary exhibitions, a café, and restaurant and souvenir shop. It’s also a popular place for local weddings, and during the summer puts on concerts and, in July, hosts a popular outdoor cinema. To reach it, several small paths lead up from the old town, or take the funicular next to the Puppet Theatre and open market.

Opening time in wintertime (October 1 – March 31): 10 am – 6 pm; in summertime (April 1 – September 30): 9 am – 9 pm. Full combined ticket €5-8, half combined ticket €3-6, guided tour €6-10. Special discounts for families.

Operating time of the Funicular Railway and Castle in wintertime (October 1 – March 31): 10 am – 9 pm, in summertime (April 1 – September 30): 9 am – 11 pm; every 10 minutes.

Franciscan Church (Frančiškanska Cerkev)

The Franciscan Monastery and the Church of the Annunciation are the two buildings contributing most significantly to the appearance of the Prešernov trg square with distinctive ‘’pink’’ facade.

Services are held daily at 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, 11:00 (English), 16:00 (Croatian), 19:00 and 21:00.

_OLI9449F8

Ljubljana, 7.8.2013 – Po lanskoletnem pridobljenem certifikatu odličnosti 2012 in po tem, ko je po mnenju TripAdvisorja hotel  Cubo pristal na 16. mestu lestvice najboljših hotelov v Evropi, se tudi letos lahko pohvali s prejetjem TripAdvisor certifikata odličnosti in vseh pet od petih možnih ”zvezdic”. Laskavi naslov, certifikat odličnosti, se dodeli  namestitvam, ki vseskozi  prejemajo izjemne komentarje in ocene gostov na največjem svetovnem turističnem spletnem portalu TripAdvisor.

TripAdvisor je svetovni portal, kjer lahko vsak posameznik ob obisku namestitve ali turistične znamenitosti poda svojo izkušnjo, mnenje in oceno o kvaliteti storitev in s tem pripomore k vzdrževanju odličnosti v turistični dejavnosti. Poleg odličnih komentarjev gostov je za prejetje certifikata pomembno, da namestitveni obrat vseskozi vzdržuje oceno vsaj štiri ali več, od petih možnih zvezdic in mora biti na strani registriran vsaj 12 mesecev. Dodaten kriterij pa je tudi število prejetih ocen v preteklih 12 mesecih. Certifikat pomeni veliko priznanje za hotele, gostom pa zagotavlja edinstveno namestitveno  izkušnjo ter brezhibno postrežbo.

Hotel Cubo je v dveh letih od odprtja uspel prejeti že številne prestižne nominacije in nagrade. Od samega začetka v hotelu posvetijo veliko pozornosti kakovosti storitev in skrbi za zadovoljstvo gostov, od edinstvenega dizajna samega hotela, do kakovosti in izbire hrane na zajtrku, izbire prvovrstne posteljnine, kozmetike, izbire menijev v hotelski restavraciji.

Ponovno prejeti certifikata odličnosti tako za hotel Cubo pomeni le potrditev odličnega dela. Nagrada je posledica odziva tistih, ki so hotelu najbolj pomembni, torej gostov samih, je za hotel in za vse, ki sooblikujejo njegovo ponudbo in storitve, najbolj dragocena. Med gosti in poznavalci turistične ponudbe nagrada ni presenetljiva, saj je hotel s 98% še vedno na prvem mestu med Ljubljanskimi hoteli po ocenah gostov na portalu Tripadvisor, obenem pa ohranja najvišjo oceno tudi na rezervacijskem sistemu Booking.com.
