A great place to take in the bridge views, find architectural landmarks, take pictures, look at the river or just stroll around and enjoy yourself, buy some delicious snacks from the street and market stalls.

This square bears the name of romantic poet France Preseren. An enormous bronze statue of the poet anchors the space. The handsome salmon pink Franciscan Church, the impressive Preseren monument, and the elegant Triple Bridge anchor this huge square - everybody meets here. And visitors and locals alike pass through this square again and again. Come; sit; enjoy!
