Saturday 4th July: train to Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana and Hostel Celica formerly the city's military prison. I stayed in cell 119 designed, in part, by London sculptor Antony Gormley famed for his Angel of the North in Gateshead. Ljubljana is a small (easy to walk everywhere in the centre) attractive city with a cultured almost provincial feel about it, a bit like Stratford-on-Avon with national institutions, sparrows and Tivoli Gardens. Unfortunately, like most European cities it suffers from graffiti, though some of it is better than others. Pictures of Ljubljana.
