Ljubljana Old Town, Ljubljana

4.8
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 road trip planning app to add Ljubljana Old Town and other attractions to your Ljubljana vacation plans.

  • Ljubljana’s old town is small, quaint, and very quiet. Cars are not allowed inside the old town so it is extremely pedestrian friendly (watch out for bikes though).  more »
  • Lovely mix architecture with all sorts of shops, cafe's and bar's to wander in and out of. Really friendly place to visit and found everyone to be helpful and polite.  more »
  • I visited Ljubljana 12 years ago for work seeing a very small part. This time I came back in the camper with the family and we crossed it far and wide and it is really pretty, full of life and local and well kept.
