The perfect base for exploring the beauty of Slovenia, the vibrant city of Ljubljana is one of Europe’s greenest capitals. Ljubljana is a delightful concoction of Italian Baroque, Art Nouveau and Habsburg-inspired architecture, marked with the indelible stamp of beloved architect Jože Plečnik. Where its willow-fringed banks are lined with attractive riverside cafes, the Ljubljanica River divides the city’s charming old town from its bustling commercial hub.
After breakfast, embark on a tour of Ljubljana’s old town. Walking through a lattice of cobblestone streets and arched alleys, your guide will outline the city’s fascinating five thousand year history. Beside the politically significant Town Hall in the ancient Town Square, Ljubljana’s finest cultural cornerstones feature Plečnik’s architectural masterpieces – from Križanke open-air theatre, the Napoleon monument, Central Food Market, Prešern Square, Congress Square to the famous Three Bridges, each is a modern work of art.
The festival is performed as a Concert Cycle. Your repertoire is your choirs own selection. The beautiful hall at Ljubljana will provide the setting for Choirs In Concert, with local and international participating choirs performing a diverse programme.
