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 .

  • This square is the very heart of the city, at the foot of the three bridges and chaired by the reddish Franciscan church. Place of cultural activities, terraces, and gateway to the narrow streets of the old area of the other side of the River as well as the ascent to the Castle. It is a wonderful and magical place with a great atmosphere at any time of the day.

  • Poznacete Ljubljana in Presernovom square in the Centre. Large, bulky square with a view of the city of Ljubljana and three bridges over the Ljubljanica. Beautiful monument to f. Preserna in the Center and the history is very interesting. Surrounded by the beautiful gradjevinama as she left the Austro-Hungarian Empire, there is also a church right behind the monument. Winter is wonderful. Everything is near from Presernovog square.
