Prešeren's Monument reviews
This dramatic sculpture became even more dramatic when I learned that originally it was far too big and a clever bit of cut and paste was needed. Remember to visit the restored Preseren Memorial... more »
Is the monument the obelisk shown at the top of the TripAdvisor entry or is it the bulky statue of the man a stone's throw away shown in other photos? It seems unclear, either way both are decent... more »
Old city centre in Ljubljana is an amazing place to be, day or evening, alone or with your family. With a lot of places to discover, the place is both historical and lively. The only recommendation is take enough time to wander on all the streets and discover the hidden gems of this city.
Come next summer please. It is STILL in the works, like forever, and badly unpleasant due to masses of tourists. The centre of Ljubljana as a whole, this year, is the worse experience for me, as someone who lives here. Mostly because of uncontrolled tourist masses and this year, because of massive street-works everywhere. And lack of wandering police officers. Back in the days when they closed the centre for traffic, it was a real joy to go around with kids. Today, every minute is a danger for them and we have to watch out for them not to get bumped by a bicycle, electric scooter, maybe a narco (there is more of those every day here and you can encounter used needles on very busy places also!) or a beggar, or a group of tourists who don't look where they walk. Really hope it gets better, or I'll have to move out of the centre.
