Beauty and serenity. A place to wine and dine and have the best traditional Slovenian cuisines. Their wine is a must. The atmosphere so fresh and relaxing.

We took a canal trip it took about an hour was reasonable priced and we saw parts of city and its outskirts that we would not have seen on foot. It is worth the hour and the money.

Kanal is very nice part of Ljubljana. A lot of restaurants are on both side of the Kanal. Small touristic boats are floating on the river. It is very nice all over the year but specially nice it is around Christmas and New Year festival.
