Ljubljana Castle

Perched on a hilltop above the Old Town, Ljubljana Castle is the biggest of the city’s several castles and one of Ljubljana’s most popular tourist attractions. Dating back to the 15th century, the impressively preserved medieval fortress is much more than just a city landmark – the castle is a hub of activity with hundreds of tourists climbing the lookout tower to enjoy the unbeatable views of the city. 

Although there’s a fee for climbing the tower, the castle courtyard is free to enter and the castle chambers often host temporary art exhibitions and handicrafts markets. Other highlights include the castle chapel, an increasingly popular wedding venue; the Museum of Slovene History, which offers a fascinating introduction to the small eastern European nation; and the Virtual Museum, which presents a 3D film of the city’s history. 

Throughout the year, Ljubljana Castle also hosts a number of events in its grounds (including the Ljubljana Summer Festival), so look out for medieval reenactments, theater performances and open-air movie screenings in the summer months, or evening concerts and festive entertainment around the Christmas season.

The castle is reachable by funicular from Krekov trg square, but many choose to walk – an easy 10-minute climb offering great views along the way.
