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.

  • Beautiful tour with companion River. A quiet place, full of history. Go up to the bridge of dragons, take the three bridges, climb up to the Castle and dinner at the luza of lamps with the murmur of the river.
