Procrastinator’s Links about Ljubljana

Here are a few resources for choir members who want to know a little about Ljubljana, Slovenia before we arrive next Monday:

  • Essential phrases in Slovenian – Courtesy of the BBC, you can hear recordings of useful phrases  like “Do you speak English?” and “My hovercraft is full of eels.” (Okay, maybe not that last one.) The BBC also provides similar pages for Hungarian and Italian.
  • Lonely Planet – A good place to start for a general overview of Ljubljana.
  • Ljubljana City Guide – From the UK’s Guardian newspaper, this article gives an easy-to-read overview of the city highlights.
  • Visit Ljubljana – The official Slovenian tourism organization’s web resource. I particularly liked the page on Slovenian cuisine, since that’s a type of food with which I’m completely unfamiliar.
  • Austria Trend Hotel Ljubljana – We’re staying here!

I hope these links are useful for you. Please share any good resources you’ve found or tips you have by leaving a comment. Travel websites unanimously suggest that Ljubljana is one of Europe’s under-appreciated gems, so it should be a fascinating place to visit!
