Preseren Square, Ljubljana

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
The heart of the city's street life, Preseren Square features a monument dedicated to Slovenia's most beloved poet and several major examples of Art Nouveau architecture. The square emerged after the city walls were torn down in the middle of the 19th century and it stands on the site of a medieval road junction that had stood in front of the city gates. The muse of poetry holds a sprig of laurel above the poet's head. Notice how the statue of the poet symbolically opposes the statue of his great love, attached to the facade of a building just across the square. The square extends to the other side of the river over the Triple Bridge. To visit Preseren Square and other attractions in Ljubljana, use our Ljubljana vacation generator.

  • A beautiful square in the heart of this romantic city. Wide open spaces near the river. Perfect for people watching, meeting friends, or just relaxing. 
  • Very nice little market, great for a romantic evening or a date with clean water flowing under the bridge parapets and gives this place shine. plenty of cafes with terraces and nice shops. recommend
