A beautiful lunchbreak

The river in the middle of town

This was for me the first time in Ljubljana and I must say I liked it immediately even though it was extremely hot - when we parked the car in Kongresni Trg we had 44 degrees. We found a spot in the heat which we had to one euro an hour for - which is rather fair in a city center. We wanted to go for a walk in the beautiful center and hopefully soon find a restaurant for a small lunch.

The city center with its old houses is very well kept. You can ofcause see that there still is much to do - but cities that kept the old city center is much nicer to stay in according to me - you cannot remake something as beautiful as this. The houses have many different colours but they are predominantly in different shades of yellow and white.

The city was ofcause also taken by the fact of the heat. There was not much action going on - everybody including the turists were hiding in the shades or in the airco´s of the shops. We found a small restaurant next to the canal and took an outside table but in the shade. The food we got was ok - but not more but we had defitely found one of the more touristic places - we can only blame ourselves.

After the dinner interupted constantly by an American sitting at the neighbouring table taking so loud on his GSM that all of us in the whole region knew what he was working on for GM, the troubles they had with his successer and sofort, we went to see the old quarter of the city.

We walked to whole area of the city center and once in a while had to seek the comfort of the shade in a shop. It was an outstanding pleasure to be there and I will be back for a longer visit soon - I knew that straight away - I really enjoyed and the people were sweet and friendly.
