Ljubljana Old Town, Ljubljana
(4.8/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
Walk down the cobbled streets of Ljubljana Old Town, nestled between the river and the hilltop castle. The historical center features local designer shops, cafes, and restaurants, a farmer's market, several historical bridges, and the only row of 19th-century buildings that survived the 1895 earthquake. The charming narrow lanes lead to two squares: the city square with the city hall and a copy of the 18th-century "three rivers" fountain, and the upper square. Taste local specialties, enjoy watching street artists, and take in the architectural details, such as wall carvings, sculptural decoration, or elaborate metalwork on fences and balustrades. The nearby castle and tower provide panoramic views of the city. Use our Ljubljana itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Ljubljana Old Town and other attractions in Ljubljana.

  • Walk around the Old Town of Ljubljana really is like stepping into the past, you will not stop to hold its head up to admire, in addition to the landscape, the buildings in the present
