Slovenija se predstavlja na trgih Severne Amerike. Dogodku se je pridružil tudi hotel CUBO.

Slovenski turistični ponudniki so se pod okriljem Slovenske turistične organizacije (STO) od 19. do 23. junija predstavili na severnoameriškem trgu.

Intenzivna promocija slovenskega turizma se je pričela 20. junija v New Yorku, kjer je potekal poslovni dogodek »Feel Slovenia«. Dogodek velja za odlično priložnost za izmenjavo kontaktov in izvedbo poslovnih srečanj med slovenskimi turističnimi ponudniki ter ameriškimi organizatorji potovanj in turističnimi agencijami. Delegacija se je nato preselila v Toronto, Kanado, kjer je bila izvedena delavnica slovenskega turizma.

Obeh dogodkov se je udeležil tudi Hotel CUBO.

Več o samem dogodku si lahko preberete na strani Slovenske turistične organizacije.

Hotel CUBO se je nato pridružil partnerju Luxury Slovenia na dogodku LE Miami. Dogodek Le Miami združuje vse, ki si želijo premik v razkošju. Združuje hotele, ki želijo ustvarjati trende ter turistične ponudnike in agencije, ki se osredotočajo na modernega turističnega  popotnika.

Tip from CUBO team: visit Plečnik house

Ljubljana will dedicate year 2017 to Jože Plečnik, an architect that redesigned the city of Ljubljana. With this the city  will commemorate two anniversaries of his life; 145 years since his birth (23 January 1872) and the 60th anniversary of his death (7 January 1957).

Jože Plečnik, who was born only few steps from hotel CUBO began his career in Vienna and Prague. The Czechoslovak president at the time, Tomáš Masaryk, appointed Plečnik chief architect for the 1920 renovation of the Prague Castle.

Plečnik gave the capital of Slovenia, the city of Ljubljana iconic look, by designing iconic buildings such as the Slovene National and University Library building, famous Triple Bridge, embankments along the Ljubljanica River, the Ljubljana open market buildings, the Ljubljana cemetery, the Stadium, the building of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (now the Constitutional Court) , the Mutual Assurance Company. He also renovated Križanke, the property of the Teutonic Knights from the 13th century and designed beautiful arc of funeral chapels reminiscent of classical buildings at the entrance to Ljubljana’s main cemetery, Žale.

The house (Plečnikova hiša/ Plečnik house) in Trnovo where Plečnik moved into in 1921 is opened for public. The house contains rooms displaying the artist’s valuable original furniture and personal objects, a collection of clay, plaster and wooden models of various projects, Plečnik’s personal library and his drawing utensils. Today, visitors can see the entrance hall, the corridor, the kitchen, the bedroom with the bathroom, the small reception room, the spiral staircase, the master’s studio on the upper floor and the winter garden. Due to the exceptional circumstances and intimacy of the site, the house can only be visited as part of guided tours.

At the moment there are few options where you can follow the steps of this amazing architect. You can join Walking tour of Plečnik’s Ljubljana, visit an exhibition “Plečnik above the City” at the Ljubljana castle or photo exhibition City with Plečnik’s Signature at Jakopič Promenade. Take a look at few photos our staff took while visiting Plečnikova hiša/ Plečnik house.


Plečnik House opening times:

Tuesday–Sunday: 10.00–18.00
Monday: Closed

Guided tours of the Plečnik House start at every full hour, last one starting at 5.00 pm.

LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIJA: SKRITI DRAGULJ EVROPE

Izraz “skriti dragulj ‘ se velikokrat omeni, ko govorimo o Ljubljani, glavnem mestu Slovenije. Kljub rasti v turizmu, večina ljudi ne ve veliko o tem lepem in malem evropskem mestu z odlično kulinariko, prijaznimi ljudmi in lepimi znamenitostmi.

Ljubljana je ena izmed najbolj prijaznih in mobilnih mest v Evropi. Je zelo majhno mesto, kjer je enostavno hoditi peš, kar jo loči od večine evropskih mest. Kot zelo čisto in zeleno mesto, ne preseneča, da je bilo nagrajeno kot zelena prestolnica Evrope leta 2016. Z lahkoto si lahko tudi izposodite kolo v enem od številnih ponudnikov po mestu. Med njimi tudi v našem hotelu.

Ljubljana- slovenska pravljica

Ljubljana je bila pohvaljena še v enem članku in sicer za sloviti New York Times. Opisana je kot starodavna pravljica in fotografije prikazujejo, kakšno lepo mesto je, z mešanico umetnosti, kulture in hrane. V hotelu Cubo smo bili počaščeni, da smo med hoteli, ki so priporočeni za bivanje.

How Ljubljana manages to be eco-friendly without losing its historic charm

Ljubljana truly is and a city with a green soul. With ample green space, accessible public transportation, and dedicated residents, it’s no wonder Ljubljana is the European Green Capital of 2016.

Read what Simon Heptinstall has wrote about our green capital for the Daily Mail.

 

Each year a different city in Europe announces it is the Continent’s new ‘Green Capital’ for the next 12 months. The hope is that tourists will flock there in droves, but in most cases the award seems to have nothing to do with making better holidays for visitors – and a lot to do with enlarging the egos of local politicians.

So I sighed deeply when I was invited to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, which holds the title this year. I feared I would be spending my weekend touring a new sustainable sewage works. Slovenia forms the northern part of the former Yugoslavia. It includes a short section of the Adriatic coast and the southern foothills of the Alps.

Given Ljubljana’s history as a provincial city behind the Iron Curtain for 50 years, I was expecting Soviet-style tower blocks, lingering damage from the Yugoslavian civil war, and grumpy folk driving rusty cars. Instead, I got a huge surprise.

This pretty capital turns out to be one of Europe’s lucky cities. It has escaped any major war damage over the past 100 years. Even the token ‘ten-day war’ –when Slovenia declared independence from Yugoslavia in 1991 – left no scars.

Visitors will find a charmingly intact historic city centre, with old streets lined by baroque and art nouveau buildings either side of a graceful river, and a landmark hill topped by an old castle. It’s a beautiful, clean city that’s a pleasure to walk around.

So what has Ljubljana done to deserve its new Green Capital title? Well, I have to say the authorities have done a good job. Traffic is banned from the city centre and parking is largely confined to underground car parks. Rubbish bins? They’re tubes that lead to underground recycling collection points.

City officials are so proud of the quality of the local water that they’ve installed 17 water fountains. Many shops and restaurants serve organic produce.

And there are free electric taxis and free public bicycles, too, which all makes Ljubljana the perfect weekend destination for ‘greens’ – and everyone else, too.
