The famous Slovenian poet Preseren is memorialized by statue in this square. The muse in this statue is topless, which was quite controversial when it was erected–especially for it’s proximity to the Pink Church. After attempts by the priest to cover her up with cloth, they ended up planting three birch trees in front of the sculpture to block the... More

What a stunning place to be. It is situated right on the river next to the triple bridge, this is a perfect postcard picture view with a castle in the background or river banks and bridges. It is very easy to find yourself around, so just take a walk. Everything is just around a corner. In the warm evenings of... More

What a glorious place to be. Situated right on the river next to the triple bridge (which is a major site in town), this is a picture perfect postcard place to visit. You don't need to organise a guided tour 0 - it's easy to find yourself around. Everything is within walking distance. It's not a big town but do... More

Another wonderful part of the scenery! It was buzzing with people, chestnut stalls and vibe. A beautiful area to walk and explore.

Right by the river and next to the triple bridge (another major sigh in town), the square is small and picture prefect. One doesn't need to join guided tours as all major sights are next to each other and just short walking distance away. Ljubljana is anyhow just a small town.

As the center of old part of Ljubljana, it has rich history. It's center is Prešeren monument that reminds everyone of Prešern's greatness. You can cross the river Ljubljanica with walking over the triple bridge or over one of many bridges. If you'd like to drink something, go behing the monument and straight forward, you will see many cafes. the... More

If you are walking through Old town, you can't miss Preseren Square. It's a must see, surrounded by the main sights like the Franciscan church. The triple bridge leads right into it. A statue of the poet Preseren is overlooking the square. There are restaurants nearby and a great crepe stand. Good place to take some pictures. It feels like... More

It's in the middle of everything so you won't miss it, and you shouldn't. Take a walk above the square to the small park, it's very charming.

The square is the main point which is known for the Franciscan Church and the monument of Preseren, not to mention the other architectural buildings around. The Triple bridge is nearby. The square is the a point which leads to all the roads for many other attractions in the area. This place has an amazing atmosphere and is a good... More
