Create an itinerary including Prešeren Square
The heart of the city's street life, Prešeren Square features a monument dedicated to Slovenia's most beloved poet and several major examples of Art Nouveau architecture. The square emerged after the city walls were torn down in the middle of the 19th century and it stands on the site of a medieval road junction that had stood in front of the city gates. The muse of poetry holds a sprig of laurel above the poet's head. Notice how the statue of the poet symbolically opposes the statue of his great love, attached to the facade of a building just across the square. The square extends to the other side of the river over the Triple Bridge. Plan to see Prešeren Square and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ljubljana online trip builder.

  • Really fun spot! Lots to see and a great place to people watch. The buildings are eye catching and it is just across from the market.

  • A pretty area overlooking the canal and Three bridges. Lots of shops, the local antiques and various sellers along the streets out door market and of course, places to eat and people watch. I definitely would like to return and stay in the area to explore and experience more of this delightful area.
  • A small square in the heart of the old city of Ljubljana. Walking friendly close to few of the famous bridges spanned across the river such as the Triple bridge. You can have an ice cream, do some shopping or admire the beautiful and interesting architecture of the city.
