|The famous Dragon Bridge|
As soon as our rooms were sorted, we started exploring Ljubljana (pronounced as yupyana). From the hotel, we walked towards the famous Dragon Bridge and just across the Ljubljanica River is the old part of the town. I love Ljubljana because it is small, cosy, easy to navigate and the people are friendly. You won't get lost in this city!
What a relief that our day in Ljubljana was relaxing. We strolled around the little old town, browsed through the souvenir shops and visited Ljubljana Castle on the hill. My legs haven't fully recovered from the hike in Plitvice and this is not even half of the journey yet. This is the hazard of harsh travelling - it's like you bashed yourself about 7 to 8 hours of walking in the day and spent a few hours of sleep at night, hoping to recuperate miraculously the next day!
