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.

  • In December a lot places take on a magic tied to Christmas ornaments, flea markets ... Ljubljana is no exception and the Preseren's anteroom to visitors. Dedicated to a great Slovenian poet, moreover, also the author of the verses of the national anthem also includes the Church of our Lady and a galleria shopping boutiques. Gives access to the triple bridge from which you pass in the old town. The interesting part runs along the banks of the Ljubljana and is dominated by the castle which can be accessed by cable car near the Dragon bridge. Along the river banks frequented by young local teem (60,000 students) even in winter outdoors thanks to refreshment offered by radians. Quiet nice to visit with many popular markets supported by locals eat at a low cost. Beautiful and colorful Christmas garlands and decorations with the flowers on the topic. The Cathedral of San Nicolò.

  • From this square you can see the bridges, the River, and at sunset it is very nice, all the buildings that surround it are precious. The name is of a poet. It is the meeting point of all and to begin to discover the city.
