What kind of tourist who visited Slovenia does not visit the heart of the country Ljubljana?
According to the legends, Ljubljana was founded by agronauts led by the legendary prince Jason. Jason was hiding in Ljubljana from King Aites, from whom he stole the Golden Fleece.
In the legend it is said that in the swamps near Ljubljanica there lived a terrible Ljubljana dragon. The image of a dragon today adorns the coat of arms and castle towers of the city. Jason defeated the poor dragon! This is a legend. In fact, the Romans first lived in Ljubljana. In the place of the present-day Ljubljana in the 1st century BC, there was a developed village of Emona (Colonia Iulia Emona), where sewage was built, there was heating in the houses.
When the Roman Empire collapsed, it was a period of decline. Ljubljana received a new birth and development during the years of Austrian and French rule. She was among the Carinthian and Bohemian lands. In the 13th century, under the rule of the Habsburgs, it received the status of a city and became known as Laibach. In the 14th century it became the capital of the duchy of Carniola, and later received the status of the main administrative center of the kingdom of Illyria (Illyrian provinces, which Napoleon founded).
The project for the construction of Ljubljana was designed by renowned architect Joje Plecnik. Thanks to him, the city has become the pearl of world architecture! Quite a lot of buildings in the art nouveau style in Ljubljana are the works of architect Max Fabiani.
It is worth to see Prescherna Square, Old Town and Ljubljana Castle, to enjoy nature in Tivoli Park, to visit the Ursula Holy Trinity Church and the Cathedral of St. Nicholas. The city has many museums with interesting and informative exhibits. To feel the local flavor you need to visit the city central market.
After a tour over beautiful Ljubljana, we will go to one of the main attractions of Slovenia Postojna Yama.
Postojna is a small town 50 km from the capital. This town is the largest cave in Slovenia – Postojna Yama. The air temperature underground is about + 8 ° С.
It is listed by UNESCO. The cave is really grand and very beautiful! The beauty of the cave is impossible to describe in words. This journey is simply breathtaking! In Slovenia, more than 11 thousand caves. But Postojnaya Yama is the grandest of them.
Postojna Yama was discovered in the valley of the river Pivka in the 17th century. And already in 1818, a local resident, Luka Cech, began to show it to travelers. Today, cavers have covered about 20 km, but only 5 km is open to the public.
In 1857, in the cave, before visiting the imperial couple of the Hapsburgs, the railway was built. It still operates and delivers tourists this way into the mountains.
Postojna began to be illuminated with electricity from 1884, even earlier than some Slovenian cities.
Since its discovery Postoynu Yama has been visited by about 35 million people.
Near the cave on the banks of the river there is a beautiful park, you can ride horses, try to pass the “obstacle course” between the trees.
