A walk through Škofja Loka

Only 23 km (cc 14 miles) from the capital Ljubljana, you can spend a day back in time in a small town of Škofja Loka. Its medieval town center is the best preserved in the whole Slovenia, and it is really worth seeing. A walk through the narrow old town alleys, with the stop at the Town Square for some tea or coffee, will add some more flavor to your cultural experience of Slovenia.

From the end of the square you can rise to the Škofja Loka Castle. The castle stands on the edge of the slope above the town and dominates the image of the town. This grand building is nowadays the home of Loka Museum, which is a great place to have a look at local history (closed on Mondays).

On our visit we captured many beautiful photographs of Škofja Loka, which will make you put Škofja Loka on your list of places you would want to see when visiting Slovenia.
