Vodnik Square (Vodnikov trg), Ljubljana

(4.1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Stretching between the Dragon Bridge and the Triple Bridge, Vodnik Square (Vodnikov trg) is best-known for an open-air market with stalls of fruits, vegetables, fresh flowers, herbs, and meat products. Built after the 1895 earthquake in the place of an old monastery, the square is named after Valentin Vodnik--a Slovenian poet, priest, and journalist whose statue graces the plaza. Walk through the market and buy some souvenirs, local honey, or a light snack. Occasionally you can catch sight of musicians playing traditional instruments. A path across the street leads to Castle Hill.

  • In the beautiful old town market, where farmers sell their products (especially on Saturdays). Week, for example, vendors have a lot, it is vegetables, fruits, berries, flowers and clothes, etc. We bought a kotiinviemisiksi from a nearby shop in Jerusalem artichokes and local wine. Restaurants and cafés are nearby.

  • This market is wonderful and allows to wander between the aisles led until about 14: 00. Then you have two alternatives: lunch in the cafes near the channel or go up to the castle on foot for the more adventurous, by funicular for the lazy!
