Ljubljana, Slovenia (4) – A Walk in the Night (Day 8)
Without the threat of rain, our second evening in Ljubljana was spent strolling through old town and a return hike to the Castle.
After a great meal at the Paninoteka Restaurant, we slowly cruise north through Mestni Street and Circil Metodov Street to reach the lighted pathway up to the Castle. After a wonderful visit, we decided to return back down in the unlit path (hooray for iPhone flashlight) to the river. As scary as it may sound, walking down the side of a hill in complete darkness was the coolest thing. Heading back to our hotel along the river with a stop at Presernov Square, we catch some beautiful night time scenes.
Warm enough for a outdoor meal from the Paninoteka Restaurant, we have a wonderful view.
