Preseren Square, Ljubljana

4.6
The heart of the city's street life, Preseren 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 Preseren Square and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ljubljana online trip builder .

  • Nice place, but it rained heavily. If you have time, you can have a coffee here. Otherwise ok place, there were some street singers

  • Place to drink coffee and sit down to watch the time pass and doubt between observing the Renaissance houses, sculptures of the walls, palaces, churches or bridges.... Enjoy it without haste
