Create an itinerary including Prešeren Square
The heart of the city's street life, Prešeren 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 Prešeren Square and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ljubljana online trip builder.

  • This is the most important square of Ljubljana. It has great bridges, statues and a church. The very special fountain in the middle is weird, but great. You won't miss this square when visiting...

  • Attractive square next to the triple bridge. Look across the triple bridge and you will have a nice view of the castle in front of you.

  • Serves as the central square of old town Ljubljana, can be reached via the Triple Bridge from the two square, filled with amazing collection of stores, restaurants and national monuments and dotted with artworks. Very typical and representative of a European city with baroque buildings and cobblestone streets built along the stretch of the Ljubljanica River.
  • A small square in the heart of the old city of Ljubljana. Walking friendly close to few of the famous bridges spanned across the river such as the Triple bridge. You can have an ice cream, do some shopping or admire the beautiful and interesting architecture of the city.
  • This walking square is famous ⚡️ Seems like a center of the World 🌎 Such a beautiful place to make a memorable evening ❤️..make a good 📸 If you ever come in Ljubljana, this is very nice part of the city.
  • Feels like its the heart of this city with no much going on around it. Its impossible to miss and well worth a visit surrounded by the Franciscan church, the famous triple bridge and the Prešeren poet monument! It was quite busy during a Sunday after in mid-September but not too busy!
  • Prešeren Square – It is always crowded as it is a local meeting point. In addition to the statue of the famous poet, right in the center of the square, pay attention to the Franciscan Church of the Annunciation which is right next door.
