Ljubljana dragons

Four-hour excursion

The Slovenian capital is an architectural gem. The mixtures of baroque style with the Art Nouveau and the work of the architect Jože Plečnik are among its special treasures. The city boasts several cultural events and an impressive social and nightlife.

We will start the visit in the main square called the Prešeren Square with the famous Triple Bridge, the Franciscan Church with its red facade and the statue of the most important Slovenian poet France Prešeren that watches his beloved Julija. We continue to the Congress Square, a magnificent open area with plane trees, the palaces of the Philharmonic Academy and the headquarters of the University of Ljubljana. We will continue discovering architect Plečnik's main works: the peculiar National and University Library, the outdoor theatre Križanke and the Shoemakers Bridge over the river Ljubljanica that leads to the old city. In the courtyard of the City Hall we will learn the legend of the dragon that found its way into the coat of arms of Ljubljana. Before ending the walk, we will pass by the cathedral dedicated to San Nicola and the always-colorful market. Lunch at the castle restaurant.

Before ending the tour, we will embark on a boat that will take us on a cruise along the river Ljubljanica: We will meadow through the old part of the town, passing below numerous bridges that mark the image of Ljubljana.
