How great is it to have your national poet be the center of the old town. The monument of France Preseren has a muse hovering over it and a few trees that are supposed to mask the fact that she is naked. His real love is depicted straight across from him as a young wealthy girl looking out a window.... More

The main centre of the city and where you will also see the Triple Bridge. Always busy, and while we were there, a whole host of events taking place. Some good bars surrounding it too. Great for people watching.

This busy, large open very attractive square contains two Ljubljana’s main attractions – the Church of the Annunciation and the Triple Bridge. It bustles with people as several important and pedestrianised streets converge here. One street heading north from this square is Miklosiceva cesta which contains some very fine grand buildings built after the 1895 earthquake. All of these can... More

A great place to grab gelato and waste away time. The old town has classic charm and is very welcoming to visitors -- even first time travelers.

it's in the middle of Ljubljna, next to the pink church, Franciscan Church. There were musicians and artists doing their performances.

Beautiful and peaceful square. You can enjoy looking at really beautiful buildings. You can also see the castle. Not many tourists (at least in May), which makes it an even nicer experience. In the evening, just seat around and enjoy some music from some amateur artists.

In old town where you won't miss it, small but effortless so worth a visit. You can also visit other major attractions from there such as the Triple Bridge and the Cathedral.

Large square with river views and historic buildings. We stopped for some gelato in the square to enjoy our snack and view. The square offers many places to eat and drink.
