Busy square with plenty of landmarks around, like the triple bridge. Nice restaurants and shops around. Musicians hanging around, like the one who encourages you to grab an instrument and play along. Great ambiance.

All the main attractions including Preseren Square are located in the centre of town. All these locations compliment each other and make for a great city to visit and walk around.
