This is the main center of Ljubljana. It is just across the river by the triple bridge with the landmark red building and a statue.

Popular with Locals especially at times of celebrations and excellent to walk around and discover as a tourist, while sipping hot cooked wine. Lots of lovely old buildings, statues, bridges and more. A friendly place with lots of fun things to see and do for free.
