Sightseeing of Ljubljana – two hours walking tour

Time of departure: 17:00

Meeting point: Registration desk of IAU, Cankarjev dom


Ljubljana is one of the smaller European capitals, but we are convinced that many bigger cities can be envious of what Ljubljana has to offer. Its medieval city centre is squeezed between the castle hill and the Ljubljanica River. The river banks and many other important buildings were designed by renowned Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik. Strolling through the city streets, one enjoys the pleasant view of the remnants of the Roman settlement Emona, the medieval old town, works by Plečnik, Baroque architecture and modern buildings specked with parks and squares.
