Ljubljana questions

Jump to last reply

Meant to post these earlier. Here goes. I'm leaving Friday, probably ariving in town around 6-7 pm on Friday and returning on a flight at 5 pm on Sunday. Think I need to leave though around 1 or 2 pm ... have to check bus schedule:

1) How much do I tip at restaurants?
2) Any ideas on how much money to take out? I was thinking maybe 10,000 - 20,000 SIT? I really have no idea, though. I won't be eating in expensive places, and aside from a few museum entries it doesn't seem to be too expensive. I'll pay hotel with credit card.
3) Restaurant help.

I have two dinners and 2 lunches.

I'm thinking of:

Friday dinner at Operna klet.
Saturday lunch at Lunch Cafe
Satruday dinner at Trta
Sunday lunch at Chez Eric, or somewhere else? Maybe Tomato?

Ideally, I'd like to spend under 10 Euros, not including wine. I'd like to have 1-2 nice meals that include a glass of wine, as I'd like to experience Slovenian white. I could also try a wine store like Vinoteka Movia

4) The real question is about itinerary. As usual, I have way too much stuff planned.

Here are musts:

Preseren Square
Triple Bridge
Cathedral (6-12, 3-6)
Town Square – Mestni Trg
Stari Street/Trig and Gornji trig
Castle (grounds 10-9, tower 10-6)
Kongresni Trig
National Gallery
Tivoli Park
Library (Trg Francoske Revolucije)
River
Cobbler’s Bridge
Dragon Bridge

Maybes include museums:

City Hall Museum
National Museum of Slovenia
Museum of Modern History

And Churches:

CHURCH OF THE ANNUNCIATION
ST JAMES CHURCH
SERBIAN CHURCH
ST FLORIAN CHURCH
URSALINE CHURCH

Wondering about help with choosing between the other museums and churches. Are there some that are don't miss versus others that are just okay?

Also, does anyone know anything about Gruber Palace or Kazina? Are they worth visiting and/or possible to visit? Do they require special permission or reservations? What about the library?

I could also take a 45 minute free tour of the town hall on Saturday, or a 2 hour city walking tour.

5) My thought was to spend Saturday just basically walking, hitting the bridges, streets and squares listed, Library, maybe the town hall tour, the cathedral early and the castle late (i.e. after 6, unless this is a bad idea b/c I won't be able to see things from the tower or access the tower), and maybe a church or museum along the way.

Then, Sunday I could spend early in Tivoli Park and then the National Gallery, with maybe another museum and/or church if possible. I'd plan on maybe Two hours in National Gallery, unless it merits more? I'm especially interested in impressionism.

I could potentially visit the Castle late on Friday when I arrive, but then again I'm not sure what access I'll have or if it will be worth it.

Thanks, and sorry for all the questions.

By the way, thanks to everyone for their help with my Paris trip. I had a fantastic time and have been meaning to write a trip report. But I'm totally behind with my coursework and applications, so that may have to wait!
