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.

  • Preseren Square is the epicenter of old town Ljubljana. The sights and party begin here. The Preseren statue with his muse looking over his shoulder as he sneeks a peak at his 14 year old crush...

  • A beautiful square with three bridges. Well visited and lots of tourists. Downtown, always lively. Magical and beautiful especially at Christmas time, very beautifully decorated every year.
  • The focal point of the town. It is very lively. Some of the town's top monuments are here but the main thing is the atmosphere.
