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.

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!
