Swathed in forest and surrounded by Alpine peaks, Ljubljana is green in more ways than one, finds Chris Moss, as he explores Slovenia’s newly crowned eco-capital.
Chris Moss | Issue 167 | May 2016
If all that sounds a bit ‘green’ – well, it was only fitting. Ljubljana was named the European Green Capital for 2016, an award given to the city with the most environmental savvy. Previous winners include Stockholm and Bristol, both known for their creative approaches to raising eco-awareness.
Ljubljana Castle (Matej Kastelic)
But Ljubljana is green in very elementary ways too. Almost half of its surface area is forested, and when you make the obligatory trip up to its castle – the only significant high point – you’ll see vast verdant swathes pierce the heart of the capital.
Take the train from Ljubljana to Kamnik (35 min) and catch a taxi to Kamnik-Savinja, or book a guide with the Kamnik tourist board. On arrival, ride in an enclosed cable car before taking a chairlift up to 1,666m, rising over the flat-topped Velika Planina and enjoying sweeping views over the steep-sided valley.
At the top, wander wooden huts used by local shepherds during the warmer months. There are also chalets nearby that have the same rustic architecture, but come fitted with kitchens and even saunas, and there’s good skiing here in winter.
