Accessible getaways abroad: Accessible Ljubljana

It’s not one of the largest capital cities in Europe, but Ljubljana is rapidly becoming one of the most accessible. This hidden gem is the perfect destination for a short break and it’s often referred to as a ‘mini Prague’. With its beautiful Baroque architecture, medieval old town and rich history it is easy to see why.

But while the comparison is a fair one, we think that Ljubljana deserves a lot more attention than it gets. So, here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to some of the best accessible things to do in Ljubljana.

It is a city that has seen some dramatic events over the years and has many fascinating historical sites. With incredible architecture, great museums and galleries and peaceful parks, there is more than enough to keep visitors happy.
