Ljubljana Old Town is simply wonderful. So clean, relatively small and compact. I really loved my time there. The Old Square is lovey. Shops, cafes, street concerts.

Its in the middle of the pedestrian area, surrounded by domestic products markets, a few monuments and few minutes away from it there is the Dragon bridge, the chain bridge and Ljubljana river passes around in the area.
