In honour of the Oscars, we've decided to launch our very own Interrail Oscars! Whoop whoop! And kicking us off in grand style, the award for the Best City To Be Hungover In goes to... Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The Slovenian capital, Ljubljana is, first off, a cracker of a city to party in (50,000 or so students can't be wrong). And, while, waking up anywhere with a banging head, a mouth like a dried up leaf and a dodgy tum is literally awful, doing so in Ljubljana might just be bearable.
For one, car traffic is restricted in the city centre, leaving the leafy banks of the gentle Ljubljanica River free for pedestrians and cyclists. Ah the calmness and lack of pollution. And the city centre is not only beautiful but also very walkable too, so no need to cram yourself onto a bus or taxi to get out and about either.
As if that wasn't enough, laid back and lovely, Ljubljana boasts a fairly temperate climate - think hot and sunny summers and pleasant spring. In the summer, you can even drop your weary carcass down at a terrace cafe along the river and soak up the chilled atmosphere, along with lots of coffee.
And if you really, really have to do something touristy with a hangover (because there is always someone in your group who insists on seeing EVERYTHING) then a day trip to Lake Bled isn't too bad. It's cool, its gorgeous, you can go at your own speed - and it sure beats climbing hundreds of steps to enjoy another panoramic city view!

So these arrived today 🚞 they were a bit of an impulse purchase but we're going Interrailling and I'm super excited!
Pretty sure the plan is to travel through Eastern Europe and the Balkans, so if anyone knows of any not to miss destinations or has any tips for these regions they would be very much appreciated 😊 @celinakow planning starts now! #interrailplanner #interrailing
