“A Must visit when in Ljubljana”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

When in Ljubljana one must visit the Castle. Either day or night it is necessary to walk around the castle and enjoy the wonderful view over Ljubljana. If hungry you can visit two restaurants: Na Gradu or Strelec. Na Gradu is my favorite. Price/Performance winner.

“unique place to visit”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Cable car is a great approach. Make it to the top of the tower, and the views are stunning. Very cool castle, with terrific historic info about Ljubljana. Only 8 euros. Go!

“An Historical Point of View”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The best way to get to see the castle would be to take the funicular railway. The ticket is 8 EUR and includes return trip, a virtual tour of Slovenian History dating back to 1400BC and a panoramic viewing tower that allows a magnificent 360 degree view of the picturesque city of Ljubljana. The castle grounds also house the 15th century Chapel of St George (patron saint of Ljubljana) which has wondeful frescoes and coats of arms of famous Slovenian dukes on its walls and roof..

“Best view of Ljubljana”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

the Ljubljana castle is situated on a small hill in the centre of the old town Ljubljana. You can walk up the castle, drive up (by car or bicycle - rent BicikeLJ) or take a funicular with 360 glass walls (there's a fee, but it's worth it for the views - if there isn't a crowd). The entry to the courtyard is free of charge. Then you can decide what you want to do - have a coffee/luch in the courtyard, go up the viewing tower and see Ljubljana beneath your feet, see the art gallery or one of the collections or even go see a 3d movie about Ljubljana history.
If you are in Ljubljana in the summertime be sure to check if the Movies under the stars are playing - a selection of movies are shown every year in the courtyard after dark and it is a fun experience!
