Step back in time at Grand Hotel Union. This hotel located just steps away from the main square and old town boasts more than 100 years of tradition. Visitors are impressed by the classical elegance of architecture and opulent Art Nouveau character. The 4-star hotel offers a wide selection of meeting venues, a professional Concierge service and the historic Union Café, which is a popular meeting place among the locals. An exclusive penthouse wellness centre is also available at the adjacent uHotel. Perfect for guests who wish to experience authentic Slovenian hospitality.
A top tourist destination attracting over a million visitors a year with its picturesque cobbled streets. The Old Town offers visitors a range of different architectural styles as well as numerous fascinating monuments. Inconspicuous from outside, the city cathedral with its stunning Baroque interior is a must for visitors to Ljubljana.
Built between 1929 and 1932 to a design by architect Jože Plečnik, the Triple Bridge is a truly unique sight. A group of three bridges leads visitors over the river from the historical district to the more modern part of the city. Visitors can linger by its magnificent white balustrades, imagining all the historical figures who have passed this way over the years.
This oval-shaped city square is a favoured meeting spot for tourists and locals. Admire the statue of Slovenia’s national poet France Prešeren and savour the magnificent architecture of the elegant late 19th century buildings.
Visitors to Ljubljana can also opt to see the sights of the city on a boat cruise down the river. On disembarking they can stroll through Plečnik's colourful covered market, a series of small food shops along the riverbank.
Dating back to the Middle Ages, the historic castle on its wooded hilltop offers a spectacular view of the town from the ramparts. The castle is served by a funicular for anyone unable to cope with the steep climb to the top. Once there, visitors can choose from a number of different attractions: a museum devoted to puppetry, an exhibition on Slovenian history or a 3D multi-visual describing the development of the castle over the years.
