Ljubljana and me

Glimpses,photos & experiences of a foreigner living in Slovenia, Ljubljana

About Ljubljana and me

I am an expat living in Ljubljana, Slovenia,I get to discover the city and the Slovenian culture,day by day. I wish to present the city and the local culture ,as I get to see it and share it with you through the camera’s eye and posts.

My experiences and photos are meant to show to the world what a magical city Ljubljana can be. I call my exploring missions, I look for the less looked parts or to understand the most famous , I travel through the town with my dog and camera and I always try to keep an open mind.

This city if you visit, you’ll get to see it but if you live in it, you get to feel it .. at that border I would place myself now and my blog. I see the beautiful sight of Ljubljana and feel the culture and history , I also spot glimpses of a cute Ljubljana , of a mysterious city that opens its secret just to those that can feel it, I look for the locals trying to understand their ways and adapt to them.. and there will be many faces of this town and life here that I will discover and share!

To navigate easier on the blog, I’ve created the Menu on the left side, containing : “What to do & see” in Ljubljana – sights,nature,architecture,cultural life etc ; “Magic Ljubljana”   – glimpses of  Ljubljana’s cuteness,fantasy and magic ; ” Secret Ljubljana  -secrets of life:) ; “Pyramids of Ljubljana” – about the pyramids of Jože Plečnik;  “Slovene cooking”  – traditional Slovenian; “More of Slovenia” – other places we discovered in Slovenia. Or just browse through categories, located on the lower part of the page 😉

For more updates, more photos and experiences, sometimes daily , visit my facebook page available also;)

My wish is to see and feel entire Slovenia but till then.. I got a camera, a lazy computer and even more lazy phone and a really big wish to call it here home ! 🙂

    Love your blog! I’ve been living in the Czech Republic for the past year and am due to move to Prague in August. I hope I can squeeze a trip to Slovenia in this year.

    Would you be up for the challenge of squeezing Ljubljana into two hundred words?
