Overview
Discover authentic Ljubljana on this immersive walking tour, led by a local. Strolling the charming streets of Slovenia’s capital is the best way to soak up its rich history and local culture. Follow your expert guide through lively squares, walk across the iconic Dragon Bridge, and hoof it up to Ljubljana Castle for panoramic views and an optional tour (additional cost). You will also have a chance to sample Slovenian cuisine.
What to Expect
Meet your expert guide in the morning in the center of Ljubljana, at the stunning Baroque-era Town Hall. After an introduction, set off with your guide and the rest of the group for a day of exploring this charming and walkable city. Listen as your expert guide illuminates the sights with insightful history and commentary throughout the day.
Visit the bustling stalls offering local produce and bounties of flowers near the Cathedral of St Nicholas, as your guide informs you about Slovenia’s rich agricultural culture. Stroll over the Art Nouveau Dragon Bridge, named and modeled after the city’s mascot, the dragon. Continue along the river, to Prešernov trg Square, after which you’ll traverse the Triple Bridge, created by famed architect Jože Plečnik.
You will also stop at a traditional restaurant and sample Slovenian food.
Next up, you’ll encounter Ribji trg Square. Here, you’ll learn about the city’s oldest architecture from your guide before continuing on to Old Town. Admire more Baroque facades as you walk through more popular squares taking a break in Novi trg Square, just after the Cobblers’ Bridge.
Pause at other local points of interest, like Church of the Knights of the Cross and Jože Plečnik's Križanke Summer Theatre. Cruise past the Roman ruin walls of Vegova ulica Street on your way to the tour’s crescendo: Ljubljana Castle. Soak in increasingly breathtaking views as ascend up the hill on a funicular ride. At the top, snap some photos of the skyline and choose if you want to go on an optional self-guided tour (additional expense). Make your way back down the hill in the funicular, to Krekov trg Square, where your tour ends.

We've booked this tour based on multiple outstanding reviews and were very disappointed when our guide seemed like he didn't want to be on the same tour as his group. We have been on many city walking tours around Europe, many of which were free...More

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and we appreciated being guided around and taught about the history. We would have preferred a smaller group, and maybe more history about how Slovenia was effected during the wars etc.More

It is a set time i believe as there were about 18 persons in the tour. You can always do without the castle at the end as that takes extra time.

One hour is enough but you can spend more time. At the Castle there is a restaurant and a cafe where you can relax . There is also a museum.
