Ljubljana Old Town, Ljubljana

(4.8/5 based on 4,200+ 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.

  • Really gorgeous and fun to walk around and just soak up the atmosphere. There are lots of great little shopping streets, but I recommend walking along the river most and exploring the bridges and the ...  more »
  • A nice old town, starting at the market, the stands along up to the Dragon bridge, to the Cathedral and then the Cyril and Metod along, at the town hall over. Pedestrian zone, many nice restaurants, cafes and shops. Fun to stroll around.

  • Ljubljana is a pretty town, with its castle, its typical houses, the river which crosses the city, its bridges, its pleasant squares, its lively market, the Cathedral, the Town Hall, a very interesting in the capital of the Slovenia tour.
