Meet here at 11am for free historic walks with guides.

Nice atmosphere in the city and easy to walk around in. Awful tourist office, don't bother with their advice (hopeless and rude) as well as inaccurate.

Very interesting and nice atmosphere. A local guy was singing with group of girls in traditional clothing, the flea market near by, the pink church and the river all add to this place essence.

This square called after the most famous Slovene poet France Prešeren has also the big statue of him in the middle. And also do not forget to see for example the Urbanc House or the Franciscan Church and the Tromostovje.
