There is a Museum of puppets (extra... More

It has a good view of the city. It is nice to climb to hill but there is not too many things there. There are couple of place to see and you can climb to tower. There was a concert that evening when we were there. It could be a nice nightout for the summer nights.

You can get there for free, if you walk up the hill, it's a 15 minute walk if you take a certain shortcut, but be prepared for a hundred "penguin" steps that are only 3 or 4 centimeters high. It looks really nice from below, when you get up there the view is amazing! If you take the funicular it's... More

Impressive castle, set at the very top of Ljubliana (Loobeeana) A steep walk to the top, but a very impressive view. Funicular cost €2.10 going down. Round trip is cheaper.

Using the Ljubljana Card, the castle can be accessed by funicular and/or road train. Well preserved, its history is fascinating, with much to see and learn about.
