Welcome to the Green Capital!

As one of the smallest European capitals, Ljubljana is actively dedicated to sustainable development and thus boasts the European Green Capital 2016  title and is the recipient of numerous international awards for sustainable tourism. 

Ljubljana is a friendly city for its residents and visitors. It focuses on creating areas for pedestrians, cyclists and people with disabilities. Furthermore, local farmers, artists and entrepreneurs are welcomed here. But above all, Ljubljana's priorities lie in protecting the environment and nature. Visitors can enjoy the liveliness of the city, authentic cuisine, many events and rest their eyes on the exceptional architecture. A walk over Plečnik's three bridges along the Ljubljanica river takes us to the very heart of Ljubljana, but if we ascend to Ljubljana Castle, we can enjoy the charming view of the city as if it was made of blocks.

Green stretches of nature surround Ljubljana. Moreover, greenery adorns its centre, which has been closed to car traffic since 2008. As a result, Ljubljana is the green capital of Europe, offering as much as 542 m2 of green areas per capita.
