A path across the street leads to Castle Hill. Make Vodnik Square (Vodnikov trg) a part of your Ljubljana vacation plans using our Ljubljana trip planner .

  • Behind the Cathedral's square in Ljubljana and agricultural products markets market opens. There is also a vending machine, and one corner of the square milk this milk is so good that you can buy from the vending machine.

  • The Council never lost the cities visited for tourism: a quick way to understand the culture and cuisine of the place. Not exterminated and very neat, the Ljubljana market presents interesting points. Rated "average" because it cannot compete with other structures and popular locations, but still worth to dedicate a half hour.

  • Very nice square which houses a market during first part of the day. Quite near the Tromostovje, so easy to check it out.  more »

Where to stay in Ljubljana

One of Europe's smaller capitals, Ljubljana offers fairly limited sleeping options, with most of its three- and four-star hotel rooms concentrated in and around the expensive city center. Travelers on a limited budget can explore the city's hostels, which offer small rooms with access to shared restrooms and common dining areas. If you need more privacy and space, rent an apartment on the outskirts of town, or check into one of the family-run guesthouses near the city's international airport.
