“Small for making a great impression”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

The square is right at the hart of Ljubljana and it has the statue of a famous Slovenian poet. Surrounded by the famous Church, caffes and the river i t is a little small in order to make a big impact in the City. If you walk through you cannot miss it.

“The central area of the old town of Ljubljana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Other reviewers have discussed the shops, the famous bridges here, etc., but we particularly enjoyed this area in the evening, and we are senior citizens. After dinner, we would enter this area to return to our lodging, and there was always something going on here. The restaurants and bars in this area pay for a musical group each night, and they were quite good. Different groups each night and a variety of styles of music. Friday night brings everyone out and there were young people dancing to the music. It was so much fun for all ages, we stayed out later than we normally would.

“Center of walking tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

From here you can go around old town of Ljubljana. If you look to the river Cacao is left of you (ice cream and cakes) if you are going to shop expensive Gleria Emporium is behind left. Behind you is Copova where you can find H&M, Zara and other shops. Across the river is food market where you will go on Saturday. Across the river on the right is is old town with old houses bars and restaurants. On Sunday you will go to flee market which is far right. Far left is Dragon Brige where you will take foto of Dragons :-) . Above you it is Castle hill where you can walk (after the Dragon Bridge) or go with municipal.

“A wonderful place for tourists, lovers and lovers of architecture.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

This is a beautiful square with the famous three bridges over the Ljubljanica river below the castle of the city. It is a buzzy place and extremely elegant with many cosy and chic bars and cafes to visit alongside the river.

“The Center of Action”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Preseren Square is at the Triple Bridge over the river running through the center of Ljubljana. The entire area is pedestrian only, with scores of restaurants, shops, the market. Everything you could want. Bridges galore, including the glass decked Butcher's Bridge, the Dragon Bridge, and others.

Practicalities at the square include the Ljubljana Central Pharmacy for your medical needs, and SiMobile to obtain your cellphone SIM card.
