Secluded square near the city centre. Home of the large obelisk dedicated to Napoleon as a representative of French revolution. Without going into sense of that notion, rather unexpected place to find monument to Napoleon. Also, very relaxing and quiet place. Worth visiting. Recommended.

This short street runs the length of the Monastery of the Holy Cross Summer Theater (Krizanke). At one end is the city museum. At the other end a fairly uninspiring square pillar honoring france. The best thing we saw on this street was one night they had a light show where they would draw on the exterior of the building... More

This is away from the river and not part of the usual tourist area. It is an interesting square with some history but not special. Further on there are some interesting parts of the city not normally visited by tourists.

I was trying to find the City Museum when I came across this obelisk which I understand is a tribute to Napoleon.

From a side street you walk in to a wider boulevard that ends in a big monument dedicated to the French revolution. Near the University library, with Le Petit Cafe just across the street, this quiet part of Ljubljana is really a nice sight to see. While you're walking around, be sure to take a few minutes of your schedule... More

A lovely statue in the center, with Le Petit Cafe (serving international as well as local food) across from Krizanke where concerts and outdoor events are held.

Again, the wrong picture. Regardless of that, the French revolution square is a monument to the time Napoleon's forces spent in our region which, surprisingly, was a rather positive experience. This is commemorated by a monument, but apart from that, all this square has to offer is a sit-down at Le petit cafe, where one can enjoy great coffe and... More
