Surroundings & Activities

Just a few minutes by public transport and you will be right in the heart of the Slovenian capital. The centre of the heritage-listed old town is brimming with attractions for you to discover, such as St. Nicholas’ Cathedral where the history of the past 300 years comes to life before your eyes.

Sightseeing & Culture

The site of St. Nicolas' cathedral was previously occupied by two different churches, both of which were lost in fires. Other places to find out more about the capital’s history include Ljubljana Castle and Maria’s Visitation Church. It’s well worth taking a stroll along the castle’s elevated grounds to enjoy the views of the city below. And if you want to take a couple of minutes away from it all, the beautiful grounds of the Tivoli Castle are the perfect place to escape the hubbub of city life for a while. The ancient city walls provide an idea of what Ljubljana, known as Emona to the Romans, must have looked like in the days of Caesar.
