Ljubljana, the largest capital city in Slovenia offers many tourist attraction sites like the old Town. It is also an economic hub for many commercial activities and services.

Compared to other Western European capitals, this place offers an affordable standard of living. Irrespective of the visit to Ljubljana, one must have a place for accommodation.
