The most important sights and shopping hotspots in Ljubljana

Always among the top-10 sightseeing tips: the Triple Bridge that connects the “old” and the “modern” riversides. The Prešernov Square, Ljubljana’s main square, is also worth a visit. And the Dragon Bridge and the castle are other noteworthy symbols of the Slovenian capital.

And in case you’d like to go on a shopping spree: Visit the central market right at the riverbank of the Ljubljanica. The picturesque Old Town with its many little shops invites to a varied shopping tour as well. And the BTC City Ljubljana at the edge of town is one of the biggest shopping malls in Europe.

 

Popular destinations in and around the Slovenian capital

Be it the Slovenian National Gallery or the Metelkova Mesto Alternative Culture Centre – culture and the arts are essential in Ljubljana. The most important art museum in Slovenia awaits you with its art collection spanning from the late middle ages to the early 20th century. And as a stark contrast to that: an old barracks complex occupied by artists and activists as a space for creative exploration and cultural events.

 

Lovers of music and the theatre, listen up: The Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir is one of the oldest in the world. It turns every performance into a unique experience and offers a taste of the city’s truly rich history. Ljubljana’s history is also at the centre of attention at the city museum. That’s where you can admire the cultural heritage of the renaissance palais while walking along a Roman street from the 1st century AD.

Enough culture, more nature? Find your personal highlight little ways south of Ljubljana! A natural and archaeological treasure is waiting to be discovered: A pristine moor landscape as far as the eye can see – and you’re right in the middle of it! Find out more about the remains of the oldest wooden wheel  in the world and the pile-dwellers that used to inhabit the area and build their houses on stilts.
