Ljubljana Walking Tour

In the morning, meet your guide in front of the Baroque-era Town Hall building in central Ljubljana and embark on your walking tour of Slovenia’s capital. Throughout your tour, your guide will provide interesting and informative commentary on the sites you see.

Stroll through a lively fruit, vegetable and flower market and pass the Cathedral of St Nicholas and the Slovenian Tourist Information Centre. Cross Dragon Bridge, an Art Nouveau masterpiece adorned with dragons; your guide will explain why this animal is the symbol of Ljubljana.

Saunter along the Ljubljanica River to the centrally located Prešernov trg Square, where you’ll then cross the Triple Bridge, one of the most recognizable creations by architect Jože Plečnik.

Continue to Ribji trg Square, where the oldest building in Ljubljana is located. On your way to the center of Ljubljana Old Town, cross Mestni trg, Stari trg and Gornji trg squares, whose buildings boast beautiful Baroque facades. Then, cross the Cobblers' Bridge and arrive in Novi trg Square.

Make your way to Jože Plečnik's Križanke Summer Theatre and the famous Baroque-era Church of the Knights of the Cross. Walk along Vegova ulica Street past a line of houses whose walls incorporate the remains of the original Roman walls -- an interesting sight to see!

Lastly, take the funicular up to Ljubljana Castle, where you have the option to enter and take a self-guided tour of this medieval castle, which overlooks Ljubljana Old Town (admission not included). Your tour ends in Krekov trg Square after your return funicular ride.

Guide was very informative and excited about what he was doing. I have been on many walking tours in different cities and thought this one was one of the best. Not only is it about 2 hours, compared to 3 for most others, but you get to try some local food. Great!

Excellent local knowledge with good humour and historical facts. I really enjoyed the walking tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Once we found the correct group ( we waited outside the Town Hall instead of inside), we began the walk around the old town. There were a total of 6 of us in the group, a perfect size. Our guide was fluent in English and we could hear his comments just fine. It was a lovely day, and the guide took us through all parts of old town. He was knowledgable and we learned a lot. This is a perfect and reasonably priced way to get to know this sweet town!
