Why It's Worth It

A small European capital, Ljubljana has a long history dating back to the Roman Era, but today it has carved itself as a hub of diversity and creative culture with some of Europe’s finest food and cafés, museums dedicated to graphic arts, and unique galleries. An early 21st-century redevelopment of the Ljubljana city center and riverside has defined new public spaces which have further fostered the charming creativity of the locals. —Adam Groffman
