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.

    We love the ambiance by the river. It is full of restaurants. We had a little trouble finding a table for dinner because most places were full.  more »

    A week in Slovenia in Ljubljana. Lovely is lovely. I'd say it's a city suitable for couples and adults. To do absolutely the Ljubljana card if you want to turn and deepen the culture. Certainly the old town is the most interesting part of the city, full of bars and entertainment as well as the more famous triploponte. Friday morning you go to city's market and you will be greeted by a multitude of stalls and stove ready of all nationalities. Sooner or later I will return to this city.

Where to stay in Ljubljana

One of Europe's smaller capitals, Ljubljana offers fairly limited sleeping options, with most of its three- and four-star hotel rooms concentrated in and around the expensive city center. Travelers on a limited budget can explore the city's hostels, which offer small rooms with access to shared restrooms and common dining areas. If you need more privacy and space, rent an apartment on the outskirts of town, or check into one of the family-run guesthouses near the city's international airport.
