Ljubljana

I visited here last summer - only staying three nights so I didn't get the deepest look at the whole city, but here are a few shots from the historic centre and of the extensive street art/graffiti scene.

Starting with a short stroll along the Ljubljanica river.

In that last photo you see the Triple Bridge, a landmark trio of bridges joining the old town (on the west / right of photo) to the central Prešeren Square.

The pink Franciscan church is the most eyecatching building on the square, but not the only beautifully decorated one...

Numerous cafes line the riverbank and streets between this square and the nearby Congress Square.

south from here, past the University, you reach the National Library and Novi Trg (New Square).

The library dates from the 1930s and is considered one of the finest works of architect Jože Plečnik, whose fingerprints are all over Ljubljana (he extended an earlier single bridge into the aforementioned Triple Bridge, amongst other things)

Across the river lies the Old Town

Shoemaker's Bridge is adorned with shoes...

...while the Triple Bridge beckons you across with views of a fine market colonade, overlooked by the yellow Ljubljana cathedral.

From Krekov trg there is a funicular railway up to the castle.

Partly because funicular railways are cool, and partly because at ~39°C, sitting still in the shade with a cold drink felt like hard work, let alone climbing a hill, I decided to take this option.

The castle is charming, and a lovely courtyard to stop for an ice-cream, although not the most militarily spectacular piece of fortified architecture I've ever seen. However, it does boast fine views from its walls, and...

...ascending a spiral staircase, even finer views from the top of the main tower.

And views across all sorts of as-yet unknown/unvisited districts, suburbs, industrial quarters, surrounding villages and countryside, all the way to the mountains in the distance.

The heat of the day dissipating, I decided to walk back.

The path down afforded further views of the castle itself...
