“a car free square great for people watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is the main square in town & it was nice to be able to enjoy it as it was just lovely. It's a car free zone that is just made for wandering around. We loved it! It's great for people watching or just soaking up the sights. There seems to always be an activity around it with street performers & all.

I just wish they had some benches around it as there weren't many. We did enjoy wandering around here & took lots of photos.

Not to be missed!

“Busy! Busy! Busy! Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

This site is in the center of Ljubljana and is, arguably, the most vibrant location in the city. It is vehicle-traffic-free and a great place for people watching, enjoying the ambiance of Ljubljana, and the energy of the city. The open air market is a stone's throw away, the three bridges at the edge of the square go over the Ljubljanica River, which is lined on both sides with restaurants and outdoor cafes. All during the day, there is some kind of ad hoc music (accordionists, small bands, guitarists), amateur performers (musicians, singers, mimes), and hordes of people walking, bicycling, sitting on the benches and walls lining the river, or simple standing and talking. There is often some form of city or national exhibition on part of the square. A great place to spend a hour or two -- and it's free.

“Great vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We visited on a Saturday morning, and the atmosphere was great. There was a youth accordion band playing on the statue, and people dancing. We passed through again later in the day, and they were still playing.

“Historically beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

A really nice place overllooked by the statue of the brilliant poet who wrote the National Anthem. It was interesting to read all about the history of this talented and clever man who put so much feeling into his pride of the country.
