With all the tours of caves and lakes and hills, it’s only right to in­dulge in Slovene gourmet cui­sine at Gos­tilna Na Gradu in­side Ljubl­jana Cas­tle. A tast­ing menu of six cour­ses for €45 sees dishes art­fully pre­sented — scampi, cut­tle­fish and corn come in an inky mix, while ma­tured beef with goose liver and veg­etable bou­quet is so fancy and heav­enly. Food, wine, cof­fee and de­li­cious ice-cream are very af­ford­able all over the city — an Amer­i­cano or glass of lo­cal wine costs less than €2. Prešeren Square (named after their fa­mous poet) leads to ideal bou­tique shop­ping on pedes­trian streets, and big open parks, all walk­ing dis­tance from the ho­tel, so you can burn off the cals and not feel too guilty.
