Our greatest poet France Prešeren, got his monument in this square over a hundred years ago. Above him there is a Muze, and that is what the people did not like, because she is not wearing enough clothes. But just over on wolfova street, you dan see a portrait of Julija, his beloved, but they were not together, and he... More

This is the busiest part of the city. The prominence of the church gives it a particular characteristic. There are some designer shops around the church and a couple of good restaurants. The triple bridge is nice as well. It is a relatively small square and overcrowded at times. Still worth visiting.

Most roads lead to this square. There is a statue and a few places to sit and take in the ambience. The local drunks give you something to look at, but they were no trouble to anyone. There was a stage set up on our last day, and irish music and dancing provided free of charge. Not the prettiest but... More

this is the best point to pass the river. I don't shop but Karl L. has an amazing opening right on the square. if you have time, check the shopping mall. Just contrast between fashion and old square is worth seeing. The statue itself is not astonishing but i love the bridge and the old ladies that sell balloons. (they... More

Preseren Square is the centre of activity of the Old town of Ljubljana. A short walk to all the main attractions in the town from here. A good place to people watch and there is always something going on here.

Preseren square in December had a good vibe with hot wine stalls,food,chestnuts etc.. Where people were mingling and Preseren statue dominating the square. If you come to Ljubiana you will stumble upon it. If you see the small green taxi ride. Hail it and they will take you in the old city for free.

All streets lead to this square and its where all the action is. Can stand in the middle and take selfies or sit in a nearby cafe and people watch! Grab the little shuttle train for a few dollars and take it up to the Fortress or stay on it and return to the square to keep wandering around this... More

Lovely square. I visited on a weekend and it wasn't that packed. Lovely place to just chill out and admire the bridge or surrounding landmarks and buildings. There was also music performers which added to the atmosphere.
