Love the canal as it provides the main focal point of the city.

The canal has a see through section of the bridge where you could see boats traveling underneath. There was also a bridge in locks similar to the bridge in Paris. Very picturesque.

The river links the green heart of Ljubljana with the quaint old town. It's very calm and just 3 metres deep in the city. Well worth a boat trip along.

Added a romantic feel to old town while sitting at one of many dining locations. Most of the dining, cafe and bars are situated along the canals edge. Got some great pics of the kanal . Options for boat trips .

We took a 40 minute cruise which shows you some lesser parts of the city. We saw two otters which was a surprise so close to the city.

Many restaurants and coffeehouse along the riverside. Saw many people take a tour on boats (restaurant boats also) on the river. The best part was to muskrats swimming and taking breaks on riverside. Keep your eyes open. :)

A vibey walking, cobbled road along both sides of the river provides endless good eating and drinking oportunities.

The river and canal are everywhere in the main city so it is easy to sit by them and have a drink or to walk along them. Well worth doing a boat trip to see under the bridges and get a different perspective.

Taking a river cruise down the River Ljubljanica kanal was an amazing way to discover the Old Town from a different perspective. This place was so charming and romantic. The tickets were very inexpensive for this experience.
