(the photo uploader is acting all crazy, so sorry if they don't load properly!)
Decided to actually stay in town today and take in its sights.
I started my adventure with another lovely panini from Back Werk - such a great find. I then headed off to the artist area. The walls were plastered with grafitti - I was in heaven snapping photos.
From there I wandered thru the sleepy sidestreets until I came upon Dragon Bridge - great dragon statues to be seen! Next was Butcher's Bridge (weird little statues of fish heads I believe they were...? haha) which also had all the love lockets that you see all over Europe. Sweet.
And from there I took the furnicular up to the castle (for 2 euros return as a student, I couldn't resist!). The view from the castle is quite nice, but I didn't pay to go inside and such - I kind of figure once you've paid to go in one castle... they're all quite similar. One cute thing I saw was "Library under the tree tops" which was essentially a free mobile library with lawn chairs, set up in the courtyard - what a
Anywho. Once back on level ground, I walked along the river - enjoying an ice cream in the process, no doubt - and just people watched from a bench for a bit. There are so many great little bridges, that the photos turned out quite lovely along the water.
From the river, I went to Tivoli Park to just curl up in the sun and read - I spent a good two hours there and absolutely loved it. They also had a nice little display of photos from Serbia which were all quite beautiful. And I finished my night off with a few local beers - very nice.
So, that's that! Today was my last day in Ljubljana - it's been a great stay :)
