Best things to do in Ljubljana

Are you wondering how to use up those extra vacation days? Why not check out the best things to see and do in Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia.

This charming capital is becoming an increasingly popular short break destination by those wishing to find out first-hand what all the fuss is about.

Ljubljana is a compact, green, historic city of 165 square kilometres. With a young, friendly population of just 290,000 people (average age 30 years), it is a wonderful, forward-looking town of exciting contrasts that seems to blend together wherever you look.

After a devastating earthquake in 1895, leading architects of the time began designing buildings and infrastructure in a mix of Art Nouveau, Italian baroque and latterly, a more modernist style.

Some years ago the city was voted Europe’s Green Capital. That trend has continued, with fabulous green parks, low emission public transport, increasing pedestrianised areas and cycleways spreading through all regions.

Perhaps you’re visiting to study the numerous architectural styles. Or to soak up the history and friendly culture of the city. Or maybe to enjoy the mouth-watering cuisine and famous local wines in its numerous restaurants and bars. 

Whatever your preferences, I’ve put together this list of of the best things to do and see in Ljubljana, to help with your research.

25 Best Things to Do in Ljubljana

1. Short on Time? Book a Guided Walking Tour of the city

Sometimes, with so much to see at your chosen destination, a short break of just two or three days isn’t enough to cover it. Or is it? The beauty of picking out the best things to do and see in Ljubljana is that so many are close to each other.

On a guided walking tour of the city, your guide will know the streets and squares, alleyways and avenues, museums and churches like they know the back of their hand.

They will put the attractions in order, so your party is not backtracking back and fore, covering the same ground over and over. They will know the shortest route between two attractions, the best place to stop for refreshments, and point out the best restaurants to enjoy your evening meal. 

If time is of the essence on your city break, consider a guided walking tour, and increase the number of attractions you can explore within your limited time.

2. The Dragon Bridge, the go-to place for your social media selfies

The Dragon Bridge

Built between 1900 to 1901 in Art Nouveau style, the Dragon Bridge was the first bridge built in Ljubljana of reinforced concrete, and crosses the River Ljubljanica between Kopitar Street and Ressel Street. 

Today it is a protected monument, and a prime example of Art Nouveau in the Vienna Secession construction style.

Why dragons? Four in total, two at each end, stand sentinel on the bridge, but Ljubljana’s association with dragons goes back much further than just the bridge. 

Mythology has it that, when Ljubljana was nothing more than a swamp, Jason, of Jason and the Argonauts fame, fought and killed a dragon in the swamp to save the Golden Fleece. Or maybe the life of a local damsel.

No matter, Ljubljana’s coat of arms includes a dragon, and you can find other examples around Ljubljana Castle, dragon statues dotted around the city, and even find dragons included in ornamental iron fencing and gates.

3. Ljubljana Castle, top visit to do in Ljubljana

Whether you’re exploring one of Ljubljana’s great squares, or strolling the river bank, wherever you are, you can see the city’s imposing castle towering over the town from its hillside location.

A visit here should be near the top of your list of things to see in Ljubljana. 

It is believed to have been built in the early 11th century as a fortress, then rebuilt in the 12th century. Finally, in the 16th century, it became a military arsenal for defence purposes against invading Ottoman hordes.

Ljubljana Castle is one of the city’s most popular attractions, and offers several alternative ways to enjoy your visit. 

You can do the standard room-to-room audio tour, or the Time Machine Tour (extra charge), which involves historical events, guides in period costume and 3D animation. It also includes access to the watchtower and its panoramic views across the city.

If visiting with young family members, why not get the kids involved and sign up for the Castle Escape. A cross between a scavenger hunt and escape room, you have one hour to solve the riddles and save the dragon.

There is no entrance fee to the castle’s central courtyard, and you will find a café, restaurant, galleries and nightclub available for snacks, meals and even dancing, (in the evenings).

4. Preseren Square, spend a couple of hours soaking up the atmosphere

A one-time road junction leading through the medieval city gates into the town, it wasn’t converted into a square until the city wall was demolished in the mid-19th century.

Sitting beside the Ljublijanica River, today, it is the hub of many of Ljubljana’s numerous celebrations and events that are held throughout the year. 

The square is a lively, bustling area full of locals, students and visitors relishing the hospitality of the many bars and cafes as they enjoy a coffee or glass of wine in the sunshine.

Here, you will also find the pastel red Franciscan Church of the Annunciation, circa 1795.

During the hot summer months, while you’re enjoying the frescos in the church, the young (and young at heart) can be splashing about the square under the many sprinklers that intermittently jet streams of cooling water into the air.

5. Triple Bridge, three bridges in one, for those romantic night-time photo shoots

Triple Bridge Ljublljana

Two of Ljubljana’s biggest pluses are its compact size, and the fact the vast majority of streets and roads in the city centre and old town areas are wholly pedestrianised: making the things you want to see and do in Ljubljana an easy and pleasurable experience on foot or cycle.

This unique trio’s central bridge was constructed in 1842, while both outer spans were built nearly 100 years later. Designed by Ljubljana’s son and renowned designer and architect Jože Plečnik, both outer bridges were designed for pedestrians only.

In contrast, the centre bridge at that time carried increasing volumes of motorised traffic.

Now wholly pedestrianised, the bridges are decorated with ornate balustrades topped with old-style lanterns, providing a beautifully intimate atmosphere for those after-dark romantic photos.

Close to the Triple Bridge, you will also find attractive avenues alongside the river lined with poplar trees. A pretty area for a relaxing stroll in the sunshine as you enjoy an ice cream or coffee-to-go.

6. Butchers Bridge, where you can lock up your love on that romantic weekend

In recent years, the idea of a love bridge seems to have grown in popularity in many of Europe’s capital cities, including Ljubljana.

Constructed in 2010, Butchers Bridge is wholly pedestrianised and joins areas of the city’s Central Market to the Petkovsek Embankment. The name is believed to have come from it being built on a site once populated by the city’s butchers.

Along the bridge, you will find several rather out-of-the-ordinary large statues, and equally as strange small sculptures by the Slovenian sculptor Jakov Brdar. 

At the same time, the safety railings on either side are a mass of those locks, many of them engraved, left by visiting starry-eyed lovers.

7. Central Market, the place to soak up the atmosphere of everyday Ljubljana

As you cross Butchers Bridge, you will enter Ljubljana’s Central Market and it’s a great place to get the feel of day-to-day living for the residents of this delightful city.

Part open-air and part covered, the market stretches between the market squares of Vodnikov and Pogacarnev, with the covered street food and cafe area running alongside the Ljubljana river.

Market stalls sell ultra-fresh seasonal fruit and veg, as well as spices, herbs and handicrafts. In the covered market area, stalls and shops offer cured meats, locally baked bread, local cheeses, dairy products, and fresh and dried fish.

The market is open six days a week, Monday through Saturday.

8. Metelkova Mesto, take a peek into an alternative lifestyle

What to see in Ljubljana: Metelkova

Located in an area of around eight square miles (12.5 sq km), this interesting, vibrant district has a somewhat chequered history. It was built originally in 1882 as an army barracks, and later became a military prison, before being abandoned in 1991 when Slovenia gained its independence.

Falling into disrepair and decay, it was taken over by squatters and demonstrators in 1993. They didn’t want it demolished to allow new commercial construction projects to be built close to the historic city centre and old town.

As word travelled, they were joined by like-minded academics, designers, hippies, artists and sculptors. Before long, an alternative, bohemian lifestyle began to develop

Properties were refurbished and new ones constructed from salvaged materials. Street art became the norm, and weird and wonderful sculptures appeared. The area was also becoming increasingly popular, with visitors looking for different things to see and do in Ljubljana.

Watched from a distance by the city fathers, the project had become so popular that in 2005 it was saved from the wrecking ball, when it officially became a part of Slovenia’s National Cultural Heritage.

Now known as Metelkova, or Metelkova Mesto, it is one of the most successful alternative lifestyle collectives across Europe

Artisan tradespeople set up market stalls on a weekly basis. Street artists regularly arrive from across the continent. And Metelkova is now a leading European venue for underground music and alternative art.

Just a short ten-minute walk from the centre, during the day you can visit the small workshops to see how things are made. Then, stroll the markets for everything from home-grown produce to hand-crafted goods and bric-a-bac. 

Or, if you prefer, while the kiddies play in the playgrounds, you can enjoy a coffee, brunch or lunch in one of the cafes.

In the evening, the bars begin to open, many offering live music or DJ sets. There are also open-air music concerts held throughout the summer. A definite excursion to include when marking off different things to do in Ljubljana.

9. House of Illusions, find another perspective in everyday situations

If you’re holidaying with young (and not so young) family members, everyone will enjoy doing something away from the usual tourist attractions.The House of Illusions is a great educational experience that will give the whole family a different perspective on how things seem.

There are several different rooms of illusion and over 40 exhibits, including holograms and optical illusions which will appear in front of you, and disappear in the blink of an eye.

The various rooms include:

  • An Anti-gravity Room
  • The Rotating Room
  • An Infinity Disco Room
  • Ames Room, where you can grow tall or small
  • The Vortex Tunnel Room, can you keep your balance?
  • Enigma Playroom, solve the puzzles and conundrums

10. Republic Square, a trip back in time

Originally known as Revolution Square, construction on the largest square in Ljubljana began in 1961. It was finally completed in 1982, when the country was a part of Yugoslavia and lived under the communist regime.

Architecturally, the building style is similar to many communist-era constructions using drab, grey concrete in a brutalist, socialist style. 

The square is home to the Monument to Revolution, circa 1975, the Slovenian Parliament, Ljubljana Bank offices and the TR3 office building.

Even today, with its increased level of greenery, the square still looks colourless and bleak compared to the city’s many other courts and plazas.

Nonetheless, it has a prominent place in the hearts of Slovenians, being the place that Slovenian Independence was declared in 1991. During the colder winter months, a large area of the square is flooded and turned into an ice rink for all to enjoy.

11. Tivoli Park, let the kids run wild while you enjoy lunch in the fresh air

Best things to see in Ljubljana: Tivoli Park

If your little ones begin to get fidgety after sitting for more than five minutes, think outside the box. Buy a few baguettes and soft drinks and head for a lunchtime picnic in Tivoli Park.

Tivoli is the largest and prettiest of Ljubljana’s numerous parks, and has an entrance just a few minutes walk from the city centre and old town areas.

Designed in the early 19th century, it covers an area of five square kilometres and is full of woods, horse chestnut lined avenues, numerous colourful flower beds, fountains, statues, kiddies play areas and a lake with café.

You can follow the various nature trails on the lookout for local wildlife and plant species on Roznik Hill. 

Pick up the Jakopič Promenade and head for the 17th-century Neoclassical Tivoli Castle, previously known as Podturn Manor. Or just relax in the grounds or in the shade of a tree and enjoy lunch.

Other places of interest in the park include the Baroque Cekin Mansion, which houses Ljubljana’s Contemporary History Museum, and the city’s Botanical Gardens on the lakeside.

12. Visit Ljubljana Zoo, one of the best things to do in Ljubljana with kids

Just a pleasant 20-minute stroll from the city centre, Ljubljana Zoo is located on the edge of Rožnik Hill in Tivoli Park.

Covering an area of nearly 20 hectares and with 6.5km of walkways, the zoo has a selection of over 500 animals from 119 species and 14 breeds.

Although compact compared to many European zoos, the animals are maintained in pristine condition, and the zoo goes the extra mile regarding customer satisfaction.

Visitors, including children, can choose a personal guided tour. Or can get involved in the many workshops run by the zoo on animal husbandry and history. 

They can join in at feeding times, enjoy the petting area, and even become a zoo keeper for a day. The zoo also has a café, restaurant and souvenir shop on site.

Opening hours are generally 09.00am to 7.00 pm through the summer months, with closing at 16.30 through the darker winter months.

13. Visit Ljubljana during festival time

Did you know Ljubljana has over 14,000 cultural events every year? If classical music, opera, symphony orchestras, musicals, live movie soundtracks and modern music are your passion, consider a visit during Musical Ljubljana.

The music festival runs from 21st July through 8th September, with different programmes running from various concert halls and outdoor venues around the city.

14. The National Gallery of Slovenia, with over 600 pieces of art on display

If art and artists are at the top of your list of things to see and do in Ljubljana, pencil in a visit to the National Gallery of Slovenia. Located at the front of Tivoli Park, it is a 19th-century Revivalist building, with extensions added in the 1990s and 2001.

There are over 600 pieces to be enjoyed in the museum. From Gothic liturgical art to many works by Italian Baroque sculptors and artists who were in high demand around Ljubljana during the 1700s.

You can also enjoy examples of medieval sacred art, neoclassical paintings, works by Realist painters and Slovenian Impressionism by popular artists Ivan Grohar, Rihard Jakopic and Matija Jama.

As well as this permanent exhibition, the museum’s itinerary is regularly enhanced with temporary displays by various artists and sculptors of the day.

15. Slovenian Gastronomy, dining out offers much more than just a delicious meal wherever you are

Best things to do in Ljubljana: Slovenian Gastronomy

When you’re out and about, strolling from attraction to attraction, do you stop for a snack at a street food cart, taste the offerings in a local food market or seek out a small independent eatery?

Wherever you are, local cuisine, culture, and tradition play a big part in the lifestyle, and you will notice it in the café/bars, restaurants, food halls and produce markets you visit.

In the UK and other European countries, a high proportion of the vast array of fruit and veg you see on supermarket shelves has spent weeks in gas-filled ships holds, sailing from one side of the world to the other.

In Ljubljana and surrounding Slovenia, food preparation is all about local and seasonal. In the ground in the morning, on your plate in the evening. With ingredients added or omitted depending on the season.

16. National Museum of Contemporary History, discover Slovenia’s modern history

Housed in a grand mansion in the Siska district of Ljubljana, on the edge of Tivoli Park, the National Museum charts the modern history of Slovenia from the early 20th century.

The imposing mansion was built between 1752 to 1755, and known as the Cekin Mansion. Towards the end of the Italian occupation, circa 1812, it was commandeered and used as the temporary residence of the then Viceroy of Italy, Eugene de Beauharnais.

Beginning with World War1, the exhibition covers the fighting between The Austro-Hungarian and Italian troops in Slovenia’s Alps, and the effect it had on the country. The action resulted in over one million casualties.

The exhibition continues between the wars, through World War2 and into the turbulent post-war years of Marshal Tito, before ending with Slovenia’s Independence in 1991.

With authentic documents and photographs, artefacts including period costumes, furniture, uniforms, weapons, medals and various farming tools and implements, it makes for an interesting and thought-provoking tour.

The Museum is open 10.00am to 6.00pm six days a week.

17. Enjoy an evening Ljubljanica Riverboat Cruise for Two

With the River Ljubljanica gently meandering through the centre and out into the countryside, why not get a different view of the city, with a relaxing daytime or evening river cruise to take in the sights.

As your vessel slides under some of the many bridges in the city, you can enjoy a different perspective of the works of Jože Plečnik and his fellow designers. 

You can choose from a traditional wooden boat, or a more modern glass-topped boat. Trips take one hour with English commentary, and guests are offered a complimentary glass of wine to enjoy on their cruise.

18. Visit the house and studio of revered architect Jože Plečnik

If your passion is architecture, commercial construction and infrastructure, add this attraction to your list of things to do in Ljubljana. You probably already know of the architect and designer Jože Plečnik, and his many contributions to rebuilding Ljubljana after the 1895 earthquake.

Having returned to Ljubljana in 1922 after living for periods in both Prague and Venice, Plečnik took up residence in a house and studio on Karunova Ulica until his death in 1957. 

It was here that many of his ideas to revamp the city before and after the second world war took root, and went from ideas to completed projects.

The house, garden and studio are now open to the public. The home remains very much as it was during his lifetime, with the same furniture, fittings and decoration. Many of his original plans, sketches and models are on display, as are the tools and drawing equipment used to turn his dreams into reality.

19. The Cobbler’s Bridge, the oldest bridge in Ljubljana

When you have a river running through the city, you’re going to get bridges – lots of bridges. In Ljubljana, that’s 17. The Cobbler’s Bridge is reputed to be the oldest of them all. 

Originally an old wooden bridge connecting Mestni and Novi squares, it gets its name from the time when many cobblers would set up their stalls on the bridge to sell their footwear.

Between 1931/32, the bridge was rebuilt by Jože Plečnik, using the same construction style of artificial stone as he used to build the Triple Bridge. The construction is topped off with a series of short and tall balustrades.

Legend has it that back in the day, university students (there are 50,000 currently in the city), would detail their name, date and country on the soles of their shoes, and hang them from the bridge on graduation. 

So keep a lookout for the odd pair of dangling shoes during your visit. Who knows, maybe the practice is making a comeback.

20. The Rooftop bar at the Skyscraper Building (Neboticnik), get a birds-eye view of Ljubljana


In 1933, on Štefanova ulica 1, the skyscraper Neboticnik opened its doors to visitors as one of the tallest buildings in Europe and the highest in the Balkans.

Considered cutting-edge for its day, the construction boasted air-con and oil-fired heating throughout, and super-fast elevators covering its 13 storeys.

There is also an impressive spiral stairway which runs up through the centre of the building that, if you have the stamina, you can climb from the bottom to the top floor.

The building is a mix of shops and businesses on the ground and first floors. Floors two to five are primarily offices. Floors six to nine are taken up by private apartments, while floors ten, eleven and twelve are open to the public, with a café/bar, restaurant and observation deck.

When you’re exploring the things to do in Ljubljana around the city centre and fancy a comfort break, head for Neboticnik. Jump in the fast elevator and push the button for the café/observation floor.

The little extra you pay for your latte and snack is repaid with the most fantastic 360-degree perspective of this beautiful city. Enjoy the birds-eye views of Ljubljana Castle, and on a clear day the fabulous vista right across the mountain range in the north.

21. Congress Square, a square steeped in Slovenian history

An extension of an existing small square thought to date back to the Baroque period. Congress Square was completed in 1821, to celebrate the Congress of the Holy Alliance during the same year.

It is a square surrounded by impressive buildings, with a small park in the centre. At the square’s southern end is the Provincial Mansion, where the Congress was originally held and is now a part of Ljubljana University.

You will also find the imposing Slovenian Philharmonic building. Slovenia’s oldest publishing house circa 1894, and the Neoclassical-style Casino.

The central Zvezda Park has been the venue for numerous historic occasions. Slovenia’s independence from the Austria-Hungarian alliance was announced there in 1918.

At the end of WW II, Tito visited and made a speech from the university building’s balcony. In 1988 on Congress Square, Slovenia’s first free public protest took place. It was to start a movement which ultimately led to Slovenia’s independence in 1991.

And in 1999, President Bill Clinton visited, and read out the Slovenian National Anthem’s opening lines to the square’s large gathering.

22. The Open Kitchen Festival, a gourmet spectacular for all

From August to the end of October, Ljubljana hosts its Open Kitchen. Held every Friday in the city centre from 10.00am to 9.00pm, a host of different eateries get together to raise funds to help those less fortunate put food on the table.

A variety of Slovenia’s broad and diverse culinary tastes will be on offer, with some of the city’s top chefs stopping by to offer their personal twists to some of the dishes.

To help things go with a swing, street musicians, buskers and DJs will be at the venue banging out everybody’s favourite tunes, making it one of the best things to see and do in Ljubljana for foodies.

23. The City Museum of Ljubljana, a definite must-do in Ljubljana

Established in 1935, the City Museum of Ljubljana is housed in the Renaissance-style Auersperg Palace, and is considered the city’s most comprehensive history of the town, its people and the surrounding area.

Between 2000 and 2004, the museum was refurbished and expanded, with the addition of extra buildings to house the increasing displays.

In the four-storey castle’s basement is the permanent archaeology exhibition, including the world’s oldest wooden wheel and axle, and a wooden point. Both are over 40,000 years old.

In 2005 the exhibition ‘Power and Authority in the City’ was added, and in 2007, ‘The Faces of Ljubljana’. An exhibition which charts the history of its population from the Lake Dwellers circa 4500BC, right up to the present day.

The museum includes a pretty café and souvenir shop where you can buy a memento of your visit.

24. A day trip to Bled, a picturesque village on the edge of Lake Bled

Bled Lake

If you’ve decided to spend a few extra days in Ljubljana, you may consider one or two day trips out of the city, to explore some of the magnificent countryside.

Lake Bled sits in the northwest region of Slovenia, around 50 km outside of the city. It is an hour’s drive by car, or about the same on one of the many tour buses that run the route.

The lake, its village and Bled Island is an area of outstanding natural beauty, where tourism is strictly controlled. The wooded Julian Alps, capped with snow during the winter months, tower behind the lake and village, providing a backdrop of unrivalled beauty.

It is an area of strict ecotourism. No vehicles save those parked in dedicated areas around the village are allowed. And on the lake, no motorised or plastic craft, just the wooden ‘Pletna’. A traditional, oar-powered dingy capable of carrying ten or twelve passengers: And wooden rowing boats that visitors can hire.

It is an area where getting close to nature takes on a whole new meaning. No shouting to be heard above a passing bus here. Instead, you are more likely to find yourself whispering, so as not to disturb the hidden wildlife. The tranquillity and silence is deafening.

You can wander the many trails around the lake on foot or by bicycle. Hire a rowing boat to explore the shore from the water. Row, or get rowed, to the islet. Learn about the legend of the church and then go ring the church wishing bell before visiting the chapel.

Before leaving the islet, you can enjoy a hot mug of tea and a slice of ‘putizza’, a traditional Slovenian cake.

Back on shore, you can walk uphill to Bled Castle sitting on a rocky outcrop, and tour the castle, a shop, a chapel and two museums.

If you only have time for one day trip from Ljubljana, you should seriously consider Lake Bled.

25. A day trip to Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle

Another excellent day trip to do in Ljubljana is a combined visit to Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle. Both attractions are situated about 10 km apart in Postojnska Jama Park and an hour’s journey from Ljubljana.

What makes these two attractions so popular is that you will find nothing like them anywhere else in the world.

Postojna Cave is known to stretch 25 km into the mountain and has been carved out by over 3 million years of erosion by the Pivka River. However, the tour covers just the first 6.5 km from the cave entrance.

5 km are covered on the unique, electric underground train, and the final km on specially built walkways. Good walking shoes should be worn, and a warm coat or jacket should be carried as the cave will be damp and chilly.

The inside of the cave is spectacular indeed, with stalagmites, stalactites, columns, curtains and numerous other shapes created by calcite in the water as it permeates through the rock.

The cave operates guided tours only. Each one takes about 90 minutes and they are very popular, so an early start is recommended.

The cave also has its own vivarium, where you can study some of the life that permanently lives in the dark. A separate ticket is required or can be included in the package.

Predjama Castle lies 10 km from the cave. On an organised dual tour from Ljubljana, your transfer between the attractions will be included. 

However, if you make your own travel arrangements, a free shuttle from the cave to the castle is available during July and August. Out of this time you will need to find a cab or, if you prefer, hike through the countryside.

As you approach fairy-tale Predjama Castle, the largest preserved cave castle in the world, you can’t help but be amazed. 

The fort, sitting 70 metres above the ground, was built on a rocky plateau Gothic style in the 13th century, and backs into the large cave. In the 16th century, due to siege damage, much of it was refurbished, which accounts for the Renaissance appearance you see today.

Before you enter the castle the cameras will be clicking, taking in the beautiful panorama of the valley below and the remarkable rock face that towers above and behind the fort.

Looking down into the valley, you can see one of the secret cave exits, used if any castle occupiers had to make a quick getaway.

The fort can be toured alone or on a guided tour, and audio guides are available in 17 languages. You can see weapons, armour and various other artefacts from the medieval period. And gain an insight into life as it used to be for the soldiers and their families holed up in the fortress.

It is an excellent attraction for families looking for things to do in Ljubljana.
