Ljubljana Tourism

Next year the Slovenian capital Ljubljana will be Green Capital of Europe 2016, recognition of a decade of transformation for a city that 10 years ago was dominated by cars. The city has always been blessed with green space, with around 46% covered with forest. This was complimented in 2007 by the creation of an ecological zone in the city centre, which is now closed for motorised vehicles, and has been enlarged in the past five years by almost 620%. As the city has become more popular with visitors, Tourism Ljubljana has worked to ensure residents approve of any changes, with surveys measuring local satisfaction and inclusion of the community in the planning process.
