Preseren Square, Ljubljana

(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ 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.

  • This place is absolutely charming. Animated and serving as a crossroads of the old city, it is very pleasant to stroll or sit on the markets to observe onlookers while enjoying the present accordion music here every day. A place in the image of the city: cute
