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.

  • You can’t travel to Ljubljana without walking to the Triple Bridge and seeing the old city. The ambiance with the street musicians playing is very nice. Don’t forget the photo op.  more »
  • Very nice and clean old town, the houses are almost all renovated. The cafes and restaurants along the river invite you to linger.

  • The historic quarter of Ljubliana is precious. The Esplanade at the foot of the three bridges and adjacent streets make up a wonderful monuments. Plagued with terraces at the edge of the River, and notable palaces, is a real party wander through the squares and narrow streets. Wonderful
