Ljubljana Slovenia’s central region earns its name in many different ways. The nation’s lively capital Ljubljana dominates the area, and acts as Slovenia’s political, educational, economic and cultural centre in the process. All roads lead here, and the city is the nerve centre of Slovenia life. It is by no means the biggest capital city in Europe (one of its smallest to be precise), but it crams more than enough into its elegant streets to keep even the most avid traveller enraptured.
