We drove to an underground car park right in the city centre, beneath the city square. The city centre was signposted and we walked for a couple of minutes to the riverside, to be greeted by such a beautiful sight, the castle in the background.

Pretty canal which you could get a boat down although no boats seemed to be running in the cold. The water was very green and the locals told us if you fell in you'd go green! Not sure how true that is though!

Not only lined by cafe bars and restaurants, the river has paths along each bank allowing walkers and cyclists to tour down and back. The river is also used for water activities too. Beautiful.

I and my wife walked along the river both up and down the city center. Clean and nice benches if you want to rest.

Makes the city centre even more spectacular! Easy to access both sides, not wide, enough bridges at major points. Terraces, bars and restaurants all along both embankments. Beautiful and clean any time of the day. Very romantic!

The waterway adds tranquility to the hussle and bussle of the city. Great photo opportunities with reflections of the old buildings in the water.

Good to see the city from the water and watch people watching you on the cruise . Not really that interesting as you can see most of city from walking up and down the river .. but good if you don't walk very much.... best on a sunny day

My personal opinion is that Ljubljana is the best to visit during April/May when its still not too hot! I was so lucky to visit it in March and it was warm enough. River gives the city a special touch and just by looking at it, makes you wanna stay there forever!

I took the local boat ride on the river and it was a great way to see the sights and hear about the city's history at a leisurely pace.
