The Travel Dudes team visited Ljubljana, Slovenia to explore and experience one of the lesser known capitals of Europe.
The city is amazing and on point as a genuine hidden gem of travel, quickly being realized by those looking for an incredible experience. Ljubljana is full of hip neighborhoods, delicious restaurants (serving up traditional and international cuisine), quaint cafes, spacious parks, and stunning surrounding countryside.
We spent a total of 7 days exploring the city and the Ljubljana regional area. The focus of the trip was on activities and culinary. This video is a contemplation of some of our best moments highlighting pieces of those experiences.
We also made 5 additional Vlog videos going into much more detail during each experience which can be found beneath.
