Ljubljana is a pleasant city to live in. Although it is not among Europe’s largest cities, it has everything one finds in other capitals: museums and galleries, one of the oldest philharmonic orchestras in the world, other orchestras, many theatres, a university, institutes and libraries.The city’s increasingly vibrant commercial and trading life and the rapid increase in foreign diplomatic representatives are giving it an ever greater cosmopolitan touch. It offers a wide variety of cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants. Relief from the hustle and bustle of life in the capital can be found in the numerous parks and woodland areas, which in some places reach nearly into the city centre.
