“Delightful river through the center of town”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

On impulse, my mother and I hopped on to a one-hour boat cruise along the river and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were the only people on board and as such, enjoyed a private and quiet glide along the way. The river is lined by beautiful, old houses; many in pastel colours and from time to time a weeping willow drapes down to the water. It really was a very picturesque and peaceful ride.

The only small fly in the ointment was the enormous, white rat we spotted scampering up the banks in an area where people were throwing bread for the pigeons. Note for pigeon-feeders - rats like bread too!

“Calm peaceful river”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

This river meanders through the town. Lovely to stroll along the river banks here.
Lots of nice places to sit and eat along the river.

“Very pretty”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

I didn't do anything on the water, but it is very calming and picturesque. Besides the bridges (which there are many for pedestrians) there are some nice places to sit by the river. Plus, we were there during some sort of science festival and there were lots of things going on around the river.

“Guided tours are best”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

There are lots of boats on the river but not so many that have guided tours. We got one with a guide and he was amazing. The find this one, it is about 100 m from the visitors centre.

“A different perspective of Ljubljana”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Seeing Ljubljana from the river gives you an entire different perspective of the city. We did it by taking the boat tour; luckily enough we were alone so had the boat to ourselves which was nice and relaxing. In addition, the captain explained us interesting stuff about Ljubljana as we cruised down the river.
