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.

Great tour and fantastic guide.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2013

A really good way to see the city, and the 2 hour tour is just enough to cover some of the key areas for tourists. Our guide was very good and gave a good historical overview of all the buildings, and also some unique stories about the city. A good way to start your trip to Ljubljana as this tour helps you to get your bearings.
