  • A nice “old town” that is great to explore. The Škofja Loka Castle took me 3 hours ( I’m a geek). The women at the ticket desk are amazingly informative and friendly. There are quite a few vignettes....  more

  • Unlike Ljubljana castle, this has been preserved in an authentic manner. The museum is interesting, diverse and cultural. Much better than the one on Ljubljana

  • An enjoyable walk and a cup of coffee + a piece of cake. Just spend 2-3 hours here 😊
  • I saw the castle from the outside, looks cool. There is a nice bar that is newly renovated and where they serve nice nice cocktails.
  • Only visited cafeteria today. The prices are a little bit high, but when compared the prices, quality, services and everything else with the Ljubljana Castle, they got 5* from us. They beat Ljubljana in every category...
  • Professional museum with real fireplace heating. Strongly recommend.
