10 Things to do in Ljubljana, Slovenia Travel Guide Video Transcript:
Prešeren Square is a central meeting spot in the heart of the Old Town, so it made sense to start our tour of Ljubljana here. You’ll find the Franciscan Church of the Annunciation, lots of gelato shops, and the baffling bridge we just mentioned.
As for the reasoning behind the Triple Bridge and the famed dragon bridge, which is guarded by four dragons.
Ljubljana’s Central Market is another spot worth checking out.
We needed to sample some Slovenian food so we went to Allegria.
Sam ordered Zlikrofi (zhlee-krofi), a Slovenian dumpling stuffed with potato + lamb goulash along with Slovenian sausage with cabbage & potatoes.
Ljubljana Castle, which sits on Castle Hill overlooking the city. Built as a medieval fortress in the 11th century, Ljubljana Castle has seen many redesigns and renovations. Climb the Outlook Tower for 360 degree views of the city.
There are departures for cruises down the Ljubljanica. We boarded a cruise directly underneath the Love Lock Bridge, which is actually called Mesarski Most. It was our favourite activity in Ljubljana and it was a super relaxed way to watch the city.
Metelkova is home to the best street art.
One place we really enjoyed was Sarajevo 84, a restaurant specializing in Balkan cuisine. The portions massive & everything we ordered was delicious.
We had a feast featuring: grilled meat with pita and onions, baked beans and sausage, roasted peppers, and a flaky pastry stuffed with cheese. It only came to 23 Euros.
Speaking of galleries and museums, a few you’ll find include: the National Gallery, the Museum of Modern Art, and the National Museum of Slovenia.
We finished off at Tivoli, which is the largest park in Ljubljana.
And that’s it for our time in Ljubljana. Our visit was short, tasty, and relaxing, and we’re really glad we made some time to visit this underrated capital.
Now you guys know the drill; if there are any other things to do in Ljubljana that we may have missed in this travel guide, feel free to share your suggestions with fellow travellers below.
This is part of our Travel in Slovenia video series showcasing Slovenian food, Slovenian culture and Slovenian cuisine.

10 Best Places to Visit in Ljubljana | ljubljana travel 2018
1. Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most) – Dating back to 1901, the bridge was built for the 40th anniversary of Emperor Franc Jožef I’s rule and it symbolizes the history, beauty and architectural style of Ljubljana. Those dragons have been integrated into the city’s coat of arms, and as a result they are found all around Ljubljana.
Central Market – The lively open-air market has always been a place for the locals to meet and enjoy themselves. Ljubljana Central Market is open daily (except Sundays). You can buy all kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and dairy products, flowers and plants, spices, medicinal herbs, textiles and footwear, local arts and crafts.
Tivoli Park – Tivoli Park is the green heart of Ljubljana the its biggest. Located on the northern outskirts of the Center District, it offers facilities such as playgrounds, fountains, ponds, exhibitions, mansions and sports facilities.
Ljubljanica River – The Ljubljanica River is the main river that runs through the old town of Ljubljana and divides the medieval center with the rest of the city. There is an abundant amount of cafes & restaurants lining the Ljubljanica river which makes it the perfect spot for sitting and watching how the world goes by. A walk along the river is a good way to discover the beautiful Ljubljana decorated by many bridges throughout the river.
Triple Bridge – Ljubljana`s Three Bridges are probably the most beautiful and well-known of all bridges in the city. It is made up of three bridges that connect the modern city to the Old Town. This area is packed with bars and restaurants, and it is a popular spot for photographs.
Preseren Square – Located in the old town, Prešeren Square is the central square of Ljubljana. Surrounded by exquisite architecture (such as the salmon pink Franciscan Church), the cobbled plaza is a major meeting point, where Ljubljana’s carnival, concerts, and festivals take place. At the eastern side of the square, you will find a bronze statue of the influential Slovenian poet France Prešeren.
Ljubljana Castle – Ljubljana Castle, a hard-to-miss symbol of the city, is situated on a small hill in the center of Ljubljana, 60 meters (196 ft) above the old town. Some parts of today’s structure date back to the 15th century; this mighty medieval fortress has served as military housing as well as the royal residence for several centuries. Inside the castle there is the Chapel of St. George (1489), redone later in Baroque style, and decorated in 1747 with the colorful coat-of-arms of Carniolian provincial governors. Nowadays the castle represents an oasis in the middle of the Ljubljana’s old town, where people can relax or go for a walk. Moreover, it serves as a venue for cultural and entertaining events.
Cathedral of St Nicholas – This magnificent Baroque cathedral with its twin towers and the green colored dome was built to honor Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of fishermen and boatmen. It dates back to the early 18th century, but was renovated and had beautifully carved bronze doors added for the Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1996.
Metelkova Mesto – Metelkova Mesto is an alternative cultural center that developed from a squat in a former army barracks and became one of the liveliest cultural, artistic, social and intellectual urban areas in Ljubljana, it brings together a variety of different artistic practices and events. The area is now home to countless bars and clubs and it is also where you will find some really unique exhibitions, public art and graffiti. It is very colorful, with people from all walks of life, including anyone from students and underground music fans to visitors of Ljubljana and professionals enjoying a night out.
Congress Square (Kongresni trg square) – The square was built in 1821 and it was used for ceremonial purposes during the Congress of Ljubljana. It is surrounded by leafy green trees and some of the most important buildings in Ljubljana such as the Ursuline Church, the Slovenian Philharmonic and the University of Ljubljana.
