Take a relaxing 30-minute boat ride down Ljubljanica River and see the city's famous buildings, sculptures, and bridges from a different perspective. The canal follows the U-shaped route dividing the Old Town from the newer parts and curving around the hill with the city castle perched on top of it. Alternatively, stroll the paved path along the canal, lined with cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops, and boutiques. Have some mulled wine on a boat or grab a scoop of gelato and watch for wild otters splashing around in the water.

  • The Canal cruise is calming and relaxing, soaking in the sights of beautiful capital of Slovenia. If you have some extra time, take this short canal cruise and you'll be glad you did.  more »
  • Ljubljanica isn't Seine or Danube but we enjoyed the boat ride. You can get another look over the city this way.  more »
