From there you have 5-10 minutes to go to bars, restaurants, pubs, clubs, Metelkova, posh clubs scene, you... More

There the old town starts, you can spot the Ljubljana castle from here and look at some bridges over Ljubljanica river. This is striclty pedestrian zone, so... More

Prominent statue of Slovenia's greatest poet besides Trmostovje bridge marks one of the most memorable places in Ljubljana. Give it a try and visit surrounding coffee shops.

This square is THE center of Ljubljana. A beautiful place, especially in the evenings. From here you can visit the castle, wander from terrace tot terrace or visit nice restaurants. Everything for a nice evening is on walking distance from here.
