The tour, beginning in front of the Ljubljana Tourist Information Centre (TIC), takes you through the historical city center, whose unique architecture is the legacy of the Baroque and Art Nouveau periods and, most notably, the work of the famous 20th-century architect Jože Plečnik.
From the Town Hall and the Robba Fountain in front of it, you will go on a walk around the historical city centre during which you will learn about the history of all the city's major sights. The walk will take you across the Cobblers' Bridge and past the National and University Library and the Križanke Summer Theatre to the Kongresni trg square, from where you will continue to the Prešernov trg square, dominated by the Franciscan Church and connected to the Triple Bridge, and further on to Plečnik's Market and the Cathedral.
Ljubljana Castle, standing on a hill above the city for about 900 years, is Ljubljana's main attraction. On this tour, you will learn about its history and enjoy beautiful city views afforded by the castle's ramparts.
