Although just a small city, Ljubljana has a lot to offer photographers. This is a lively city and its old town is always full of locals and tourists alike, which makes street photography very rewarding. Beautiful architecture, influenced by Italian baroque, Austrian Art Nouveau and local architect Jože Plečnik makes for a variety of subjects, classic city views and intriguing details.

Visit in Summer (May to September) for vibrant scenes of the old town. There are so many open air events that even locals cannot keep up. Street artists come from all over the world and riverside cafes are always full. Even on the hottest day you will find many subjects around the Ljubljanica river and city fountains.

Another great time to visit is in December. Ljubljana’s festive decorations make low light photography a joy and the city at night looks stunning. You can warm up your cold hands with mulled wine or a hot chocolate from one of numerous stands around the old town.

Ljubljana has few restrictions for photographers, other than respecting the usual limitations re tripods and flash photography in most museums and galleries. In most churches tripods are allowed, but be respectful when people are praying. Most of the venues do not require a property release and you can photograph freely at all public places.
