Parks and Recreation

Not for nothing named the Green Capital of Europe Ljubljana has many parks and recreational spots to indulge in. Tivoli is the city's largest park and situated in a flat area, west of the compact city center. It is divied into three tree-lined alleys providing cooling share in the summer.

A part from parks, the river banks offer a relaxing atmosphere when strolling through the restaurational areas and stopping for a drink on the terrace or just walking around the river banks watching boats passing by or rest on one of the banks with a good book for some relaxation.
