Slovenian Rhapsody- New York Times Travel Extravaganza

Ljubljana- “a graceful city full of cultural energy” says Seth Sherwood, New York Times Travel writer, in his article, Slovenian Rhapsody, published this past Sunday, August 7, 2011, in the Travel section of the Times.

In this travel extravaganza, encompassing several entire pages, Sherwood expresses his delight with his Slovenian travels in the capital city, Ljubljana, the charming seaside Piran, and  the Capital of European Culture 2012, Maribor,  and throughout the countryside.

Seth introduces us to a new traditional restaurant, Gostilna na Gradu, situated high at the Ljubljana Castle overlooking the city, which serves Real Food. He also reflects happily over Slovenian beers and wines, and the oldest vine in the world.

The Photo, which shows a dance group performing outdoors in the Ljubljana city center near the River Ljubljanica, was taken by Andrew Testa for the NYT.  For other New York Times articles on Slovenia see,  Slovenia Tourism.
