Full description
Embark on a guided walking tour of the most important spots in the romantic city center of Ljubljana. Start at the Congress Square, home to the headquarters of the University of Ljubljana, the baroque church of the Holy Trinity, and the Philharmonia of Slovenia. Then head to Preseren Square, named after France Preseren, the most important poet in Slovenian history. See the beautiful church of Mary of the Annunciation which is part of a Franciscan monastery.

Next head over to the area of the 3 bridges, which are the link between the Preseren Square and the oldest part of the city. Learn about how the area was designed by the most important Slovenian architect, Joze Plecnik, who added 2 bridges for pedestrians to the main one. Admire the Bridge of Dragons, one of the most beautiful examples of art nouveau architecture in all of Europe with 4 picturesque statues of dragons. Find out why the dragon is the symbol of Ljubljana and the emblem of the city.

Visit the Cathedral of San Nicolo, a church with a long and rich history that has been renovated several times. Listen as your guide explains why nowadays it represents a significant cultural and artistic monument. Continue on to the town square which was once was the central square of medieval Ljubljana. Here you will find the Town Hall and the fountain of the 3 rivers, also designed by Francesco Robba. Finally, cross the Bridge of Shoemakers which takes it name from the craftspeople who once had their stalls here. 

This is a private tour so the guide will be open to suggestions and ways to adapt the tour to your wishes.
