Ljubljana

Ljubljana Travel Guide

Slovenia’s intriguingly minerally whites—especially those produced by iconoclastic vintner Ales Kristancic—are a cult favorite among grape geeks. If you can’t make it to Movia, his winery on the Italian border, visit his wood-paneled wine bar in Ljubljana.

Make a tour of the modern architectural masterworks of prodigious local talent Jo_e Plecnik, who took the Secessionists Art Nouveau style he learned in Vienna back home (via Prague) to remake his native city along his own, idiosyncratic lines.
