Vodnik Square (Vodnikov trg), Ljubljana

(4.1/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • Beautiful and colorful market to make grocery shopping. It is surrounded by traditional places to eat. Some nights are food fairs. Safety pin!
