I love this part of town. Old architecture, lovely coffee shops with outside seating even in winter and access to the castle trail from the square as well

While staying in Old Town Ljubljana we were acts Ly staying in Stari try. The Old Town Square was only 200m from our apartment. This whole area had an air of authenticity about it, clean and quiet. A very photogenic location, interesting building, columns and fountain. Definitely worth a look if you are in Ljubljana.

This square, which features a statue of the young Hercules is quite small, but has a number of beautiful buildings around. It is towards the edge of the old town and is quieter than the bigger squares in the middle. The shops and restaurants around this area are more exclusive and expensive than in other parts of the city, but... More

This square is right in the heart of the city. You will find your way back here often. We came here as part of the walking tour to hear about the fountain. There's lots of cafes and restautants around here and it's close to the canal.

We kept being drawn back to this lovely place. There are market stalls to peruse by day and musicians to listen to by night. Refreshments are never far away with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. The jazz combo that played when we were there on our first night were brilliant. Keep your ears open for them.

Running on from Mestni Trg is this old town square framed in period buildings. It is now stocked with many restaurants and shops that make it nice for a walk. Towards the end is the Hercules Fountain.
