I introduce Ljubljana that is the capital of Slovenia.

This city was a capital city of Balkan Peninsula that I visited in this trip first.

I had expected a different culture of former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.






 2 地図

< 2. This map indicates our sightseeing route >

< 2. 徒歩の順路を示す地図 >

S, G: We started from and returned at this place.

We walked in order of these numbers from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm Sunday, August 30, and these indicate the shooting locations.


We saw the sights of the old city by the guidance of a local guide, and enjoyed a stroll.

This city was a European small and calm town rather than the capital city.

There aren’t large buildings and old history inheritances here.

Tourists on the street are not many and this place is a little desolate as tourist spot.

However, I noticed people were living richly and leisurely in this city while we went through this city on foot, and by listening to advice of the guide.

The same architect built this bridge and the church in 1930s.
