Preseren Square, Ljubljana

4.6
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. Plan to see Preseren Square and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ljubljana online trip builder .

  • The presenter was in the vicinity of Serendipity square because it's come here several times a day. Are people always bus King from morning until late at night this summer, the beautiful music flowing from the fountain, the water came out and it was a cool feeling. The presentation centered around a statue of laid-back people gathered in the square, serene looking great.

  • Drew Blythe because tourism here is starts and ends here. Triple bridge located in front of the square the statue and the assumption Cathedral, the chef Len presenter and Chef Len statue and bust can be seen facing Yulia. Crowded with tourists, but it's a very good place, giving a safe feeling.

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.
