This square is a small area in the old part of Ljubljana. A great place to walk around, dine and shop. Also a nice place if you want to park yourself in one of the roadside bars and cafes and watch people go by.

Really nice place to walk around special on this time of the year. Not too crowded so it's really nice. To take pictures around is amazing time of the year not cold not hot.

Like most of the city this spot is beautiful and very pleasant to walk around. Lots of nice buildings and a good atmosphere. When we visited it wasn't too busy. The fountain is nice too.

This is a nice quiet square that we probably would not have even found if we had not been on a tour of Ljubljana as part of our Collette tour of Croatia and Slovenia. This square contains the town hall and is used for many events.

Calm old city square in the center of Ljubljana. Ljubljana as it once was. Lovely restaurant Second Violin is the best place to enjoy this square and support a good cause at the same time.

Situated in the very heart of Ljubljana, Old Square represents an authentic and amazing architectural style of Ljubljana. You can admire its beauty just by walking around, and you will be amazed, if you are into old squares.

Old square is street between Shoemaker’s bridge and Hercules’s fountain (hidden in winter). On left and right you can admire Baroque, art nouveau and other historic buildings with different shops and restaurants as Romeo or Valvasor. Best choice is Tea house near the bridge and on the other side ŠKUC gallery with different exhibitions and performances. Square is less colorful... More
