Explore UNESCO’s newest World Heritage Site

Ljubljana – Slovenia’s capital – is often referred to as “Plečnik’s Ljubljana”. It is hard to walk down a street in this beautiful city without encountering a structure designed by the famous architect, Jože Plečnik.

Plečnik’s work is considered to be one of the 20th Century’s most important oeuvres – so much so that Ljubljana’s landmarks have been included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Following the breakdown of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Plečnik contributed to the city’s redesign, in a uniquely “human centred urban design” – blending the medieval identity of the city, with an emerging need for public, green spaces and institutions.

Notable examples of his work include the Triple Bridge, Žale Cemetery, and enchanting market buildings along the Ljubljanica River.

Travelling aboard our opulently appointed, Danube Express, you will have the opportunity to explore this city – so charming that you will believe in fairy tales again.
