Make your own way to Ljubljana Castle in time for an 11am or 3pm tour departure and set out on a guided tour of the castle.
Follow your guide around the castle to six different ‘time stations’, where you’ll be met by costumed actors who will set the scene and reveal the secrets of the city’s history. Along the way, meet a Roman soldier at the observation tower, hear about St George’s heroic dragon slaying at the castle entrance, and be entertained by Emperor Frederick III of the Habsburgs in the courtyard.
Continue through the 19th-century as you visit the penitentiary to meet one of the guards or prisoners, and maybe even meet Mayor Ivan Hribar, who bought the castle in the early 20th century.
Your tour ends back at the castle entrance.
