Ljubljana city tour and Ljubljana castle
Let me guide you, so that you will have an unforgettable experience!
Get to know Ljubljana and its castle, a key landmark of the city. Behind its walls it hides many curiosities and adventures.
The Viewing Tower is the highest point in Ljubljana, and thus provides fantastic views of the city, surrounding hills, all the way to the Kamnik and Savinja Alps.
Throughout history, the castle has had various functions, and for many decades it was also used as a prison. Do you maybe know which famous Slovenians and foreigners have served their sentences there?
The permanent exhibition is on display in the renovated spaces of the penitentiary cells below the Palatium.
In today’s Erasmus’ tower, there was a prison for noble prisoners named after Erasmus of Predjama, the Slovenian Robin Hood.
Before the castle was restored and some parts were rebuilt at the beginning of the last century, the ruins were home to many families, students of the newly founded university and some famous citizens of Ljubljana. Perhaps you know which ones?
