Hi everybody! I'm new to the forum. Actually I've been reading it for quite some time now. But I never registered cause I didnt have my camera. Now I got it and I actually went through my city yesterday snaping pictures, just for you guys. I'm no professional and this is my first set ever, so please spare me. Also I apologize for unperfect spelling...I hope yopu enjoy :)





For start, thats me in action

thats my neighbourhood in north of Ljubljana called "Brod".



lets continue in the north(Bežigrad/Ježica), where all the hip buildings are growing in Ljubljana.





Ljubljanas highest, WTC-Ljubljana





DOMINA Grand Media Hotel, newest 5 star hotel in Ljubljana



WTC and Smelt building(white boxie building on the left)



"Stekleni dvor" resembles Slovenian personality perfectly. Instead of building one and high, we build two and short.



Front of "Stekleni dvor" where Hypo Alpe Adria Bank stays



View from behind of "Stekleni dvor"



Side View





Highest residental buildings in Slovenia BS-3. Manny Slovenians confusely thinks those are the biggest buildings in Slovenia.

Bežigrad residental blocks from Yugoslavian era.

New bus stops, that LPP(public transfer) is so proud off, but for me luckily I dont use, cause u cant see anything when 10 buses, one after another, comes..



Biggest erotic shop chain in Ljubljana



Home of Slovenian army. This building is build in a hole

The picture were excellent. Thank you for sharing them with us!
It might have been better if you had broken the pictures up in mabye 5 pictures for every post. That way we wouldn’t have to wait here forever. :D

Welcome to the forum Matjash, hopefully you going to update us on all Ljubljana Projects, we have few Slovenians here who are great ambassadors for there country, we cold do with few more...

BTW, nice photos, in future you can use Photoshop to edit, or reduce the size of photos... If you don't have one, Slovenian guys any of you have copy of Photoshop you can spare to our new Slovenian colleges, use PM to discuss the issue, older version would do fine to...

Very nice pics!

I visited Ljubljana in early September: very small and nice capital of Slovenia. We loved the city, especially along the river. Presernov trg with the bridges..

I must admit that Ljubljana is very different from the rest of the Ex-Yugoslavian cities that we visited. Much cleaner, much more western.. I want to draw parallells to Graz..

No big avenys as in Zagreb.. more cute streets. Very friendly people as well. I got the feeling of Ljubljana as the safest city of ex-yugoslavia. Not that much of communist-blocks as U see in other cities, like Sarajevo or Zagreb.

I read there were some 60,000 students as well. A large proportion if there are only 260,000 in the city. How many people do you have in metropolitan Ljubljana?

What districts are the best? the worst? Can someone comment every district with and give it a grade?

North districts:
Crnuce
Nadgorica
Sentjakob
Sneberic
Moste
Jezica
Bezigrad
Sentvid
Brod

South:

Vic
Trnovo
Rudnik
Brezovica

Were do you find villas? Where are the communistblocks?

Thanks to everybody for nice welcoming. Especially to mic of orion, for the useful tip about pic resize. I'm gonna use photoshop in the future although I dont now how to use it. But I'll try to figure it out. :)

I'm gonna go make some photos tomorrow if it will be nice weather. Today rained all day.

@peter of Sweden: Tomorrow I'll snap some pictures of villas in Ljubljana. But its not like elsewhere, here. Villas are not concetrated in one high-residental area. Its more like all-over. That doesnt mean that Ljubljana is full of them. Its just, that people build them everywhere and its not just one area specialized for them. Its also interestin that Ljubljana dont have high-residental area like "Dedinje" in Belgrade. We have "Murgle" district that resembles something like that, but houses in that area are nothing special, although manny famous Slovenians live in Murgle. Drnovšek(ex-prime minister) Kučan(ex-president) university professors, doctors, known artist etc. live in Murgle. But houses are nothin special.(I'm gonna snap Murgle tomorrow)

Also its not true that Ljubljana doesnt have commie-blocks. Its just that they are not on sight for tourists, since they are scaterred on the outskirts and there is virtually not one in the downtown area. Also there are some hills that seperate diffrent parts of city and therefore u cant see from one part to another. I'm gonna snap some tommorow.

About students its true. Students from all over Slovenia come to study in Ljubljana.(today was first day of university season and it was crowded on streets as hell) I dont know how manny people lives in metropolitan Ljubljana. Maybe some other Slovenioan members could help with that info.

Best districts:

Brod(my neigbourhood, in last years manny rich people moved to this part and some high residentral apartmants grew here. also a lot of nature and clean river near with good connection to the city)

Murgle-nice reputation.

Koseze-also nice reputation

Those are all I can remember to be nice neigbourhoods.

Bad neigbourhoods:

Fužine(all slovenians members knew I'm gonna write this one first, didnt ya :) )

Štepanjsko naselje

Nove Jarše

There is not very much crime in Ljubljana anyway. Only 2-3 murders a year. There is no organised crime, although people says that montenegro mafia is present. Also there was some hit-murders in the past. Last one in Hotel Lev, 2 years ago, wher some montenegro guy was shot dead. But altogether there are just roberies, car steals, bank roberies and so..There is a lot of drugs though. Specially in those "bad districts" that I mentioned. In Fužine or Jarše there is a lot od dealers and junkies. Heroin is sadly very spread.

No, no strange looks, I think. I couldnt care less, cause I feel totally "safe" in my car. As far as I'm concerned I could pick my nose or make love in it :eek2:

Hehe, you're totaly right there! Every time I go out to take some photos of Ljubljana I get strange looks. And since I don't really care, there were occasions when people started to talk to me, and I didn't even notice, hehehehehe.

Anyway, it's nice to see another Slovene here. Welcome to the club! :)

Hi guys. I was helping Matjash with the pictures a bit, so I have decided to join the forum. Matjash the thread looks even much better now, becouse you have resized the pictures. And it was a good decision not to post those night scenes with insuficient quality, but I really think you should post the Opera building that is beautyful at nights and also you can post those new fancy Brod buildings with red balconees.
