Full description
You cannot go wrong if you choose this guided walk around the historical city center combined with a visit to Ljubljana Castle. It includes all of Ljubljana's major sights and offers an insight into numerous interesting stories about life in Ljubljana from the past and present. The tour begins in front of the Town Hall, a building with a rich history now used as the seat of the City Municipality of Ljubljana. From the Town Hall and the Robba Fountain in front of it you will go on a walk around the historical city center during which you will learn about the history of all the city's major sights. The walk will take you across the Cobblers' Bridge and past the National and University Library and the Križanke Summer Theater to the Kongresni trg Square from where you will continue to Prešernov trg Square dominated by the Franciscan Church and connected to the Triple Bridge. Then, head further on to Plečnik's Market and the cathedral. Just a short walk from there is the bottom station of Ljubljana's funicular railway, which wil whisk you up 70 vertical meters in just a minute and bring you to Ljubljana Castle, the city's most prominent sight. The castle's outlook tower offers the most beautiful views of the city, while its interior houses several museum displays and other exhibitions including, among others, 'Slovenian History,' 'The Prison' and 'Virtual Castle.'

Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke quickly, so we got a lot of extra info in! We learned all about the architecture of Ljubljana and it’s influences. The ride up to the castle was so cool! And the castle was nice inside and had a bit of info to read but most things in the castle require additional payments.

I enjoyed this. We loved hearing about the dragons and architecture, but also details like the underground trash can system in the downtown area. I’m glad we visited! I wouldn’t say this is a quintessential tour, but she shared a lot of good tips for getting around the city center, from free water and bathroom sites to free transportation if needed (inside the city center). Great information.

Urban is an extremely knowledgable local guide and knows Ljubljana (and its many peculiar oddities and idiosyncrasies) like the back of his hand! Really enjoyed the history, humor, and hospitality on the tour. Hvala, Urban, and hope to see you again soon!
