GREEN CITY SIGHTSEEING: Broadening the pedestrian zone

GREEN CITY SIGHTSEEING: Broadening the pedestrian zone

Sightseeing visits in line with the monthly themes that mark the event programme in the European Green Capital 2016 lead to two of Ljubljana’s central green attractions, Tivoli Park and the Botanical Garden. Guides from Ljubljana Tourism will showcase to you the projects that earned Ljubljana this prestigious title, new sustainable acquisitions in the city and its green corners. This month we are walking from the city centre to Tivoli Park. The tour lasts two hours. Price: €10 per person.  Tour languages: Slovene or English.

Did you know that Ljubljana is the first European capital on the road to becoming a ‘Zero waste society’, and that we have already exceeded EU recycling targets for 2020 by 10%? That apiaries and beehives can be found in various locations in the urban heart of Ljubljana and that drinking water in Ljubljana is not treated with technological procedures?

You are invited to explore with us each month one of the aspects of Ljubljana’s sustainable development.
