Ljubljana on wheels

Ljubljana is a bike-friendly city with lots of bike lanes and a moderate traffic situation. Most of the inner city center is closed off to cars, making it safe and easy to ride a bicycle. You’ll see a bike is a very popular form of transport and the fastest way to get you from point A to point B.

You could rent a bike and see where the wheels take you, or even better, you could go on an organized bike tour such as Bike Tour Ljubljana. It’s a fun and eco-friendly way to get to know this lovely city. Why not pedal through the city’s rich cultural heritage, while having a guide tell you all about the past and current happenings. It’s an exciting and vibrant way of doing all the sightseeing.

Green oasis

You’re just a short bike trip away from discovering a green part of Ljubljana, such as the Tivoli park – the perfect place for a picnic. While there, why not stop by the Tivoli pond, have some coffee in the cafe by the water and admire the Lotus flowers. Or you could pedal all the way to the Ljubljana’s summer city retreat – Špica, which is right next to the city’s Botanic garden.

It’s easy to see why Ljubljana was the Green capital of Europe in 2016 with all the unspoiled nature and biking paths to enjoy. If you’re looking for a fun and vibrant way to explore Ljubljana, then hop on a bike and get going. You’ll find that sightseeing is much more fun with some wind in your hair.
