Is Ljubljana worth visiting as day trip from Zagreb?

Short answer – YES! First, it’s close to Zagreb, only 2 hours drive. Second, although it’s a small place compared to titans like London and Paris, still all components of cosmopolitan urban life are present.

Central market, ‘street life’, plenty of cafes, restaurants, parks, museums etc. Check out following YouTube video…

Usually Zagreb day trips to Ljubljana and Slovenia omit exploring interesting and unique Slovenian cuisine. For sure capital’s architecture is nice, beautifully designed and decorated. But local food!? Gosh, you need to try it.

After sightseeing, it would be wrong to sit in nearest diner, just to fill in stomach, missing hidden gem of Ljubljana – local diner cooking traditional Slovenian cuisine.

Well, this tour will enhance your pleasure of visiting Ljubljana. Besides learning about city’s main attractions and landmarks, along the way, you will:

  • Taste a variety of traditional Slovenian dishes (4 tastings)
  • Sample Kranjska klobasa (sausage) – the best known Slovenian food brand
  • Have 3 glasses of Slovenian wine and learn about local wine culture
  • Find out history and tradition of Slovenian cuisine
  • Enough food is served to consider it a full meal!


Please, take your passport, you need it to cross the border to Slovenia! We leave Zagreb around 9:00am, it takes 2 hours drive to Ljubljana. In Ljubljana we meet local guide and start sightseeing: main ‘Presern’ square, Triple bridge, Farmers market, Town hall, Cathedral

Along the way, we stop at local diners to sample traditional Slovenian food and drinks. It takes ~ 3.5 hours to finish the tour. Then, we pick up the car/mini-van and drive back to Zagreb. We should return to Zagreb around 5:00pm | Optional: Ljubljana Castle visit (duration ~ 1h)
