Ljoveljy Ljubljana


I’ll be honest and admit that until this trip, I’d never heard of this city. And it’s the capital city of a country! (Can I hide behind the fact that back when I was studying geography in school this country didn’t exist yet and was still part of Yugoslavia?)

Then, after I’d heard of it, I couldn’t pronounce it (hint: ignore the J’s).

As it turns out, the small country of Slovenia (population: 2 million) is, for the region, an economic powerhouse (GDP per capita almost 5 times higher than neighboring Serbia, from whom they broke off in 1991 with the dissolution of Yugoslavia). And the capital city of Ljubljana is one of those hidden gems that’s a pure delight to discover.

Go there before the rest of the world catches on!
