This old castle has seen many changes over the centuries. It was worth the visit and walking around was a nice way to spend a couple of hours. There are movie shows some evenings and the museum and historical details are very interesting as one learns about the gradual evolution of the buildings over many years.

I myself was way more impressed by the walk up to the castle than I was with the castle itself. The view of the city on top of the tower made it worth while though. I can recommend a sunset when you are up on the tower...

Almost all old cities have castles, but Ljubljana Castle is on the hill in the middle of the town with perfect view of the city and its surroundings. The yard inside the walls is also a perfect stage for music events on summer evenings.

Lovely castle to tour with much to see. A little over-modernised for my liking but then we have no idea what work was needed to keep it open and in use; perhaps it was necessary. Restaurants, guides, history and the funicular - then there are the views! 360 views of the entire city. Stunning.

Quite the walk up the hill on a hot summer day, but the views were great! The renovation has been huge and there is a bunch of info about it in the castle. Guided tours also available. I didn't take the tour but wandered by myself so I didn't get the whole 9 yards of info, therefore only 3 starts... More

A great place to visit and explore. Also a fantastic view point for the old town from the terrace. We dined in the Strelec Restaurant at sunset which was sensational.

it was 90 degrees when we visited, but it was cool in the castle, baought some local wine, somewhat rustic, for my taste, but very drinkable,metal work was interesting, the only problem we had were wasps at the table when we had cake and coffee., well worth a visit.

The castle is lovely with multiple activities to keep young and old happy. A lot of small exhibits going on that could be confusing (Puppet Musuem, History Musuem, Bee Exhibit etc) but fun in their own right. However, we did sign up for the time machine guided tour and not only was it informative, it was also fun as they... More
