Ljubljana Old Town and the Castle hill with the Private Guide
Ljubljana is often called an European jewel or a small blend of Prague and Amsterdam. . . It's a 'town with a soul', as visitors often comment.
The vibrant old town is concentrated along the Ljubljanica river and the Castle on a hill still looks like it's protecting the romantic city below.
We are going to stroll along medieval streets, admire an interesting blend of different architectural styles, 'see' and 'be seen' on several famous promenades along the river, discover some of its hidden monuments, enjoy in the town's greenery and learn about stories and fairy tales which connect present and past.
We will see all mayor Ljubljana sights: the main square with Prešeren monument, Franciscan church and Three Bridges, the Congress Square (Park of the Star), the National University Library, The New Square, The Cobbler's Bridge, The Old Square (the oldest street), the romantic river promenade, the Municipality Square, St. Nicholas Cathedral (enter if open), the famous Open Air Market, Butcher's Bridge, Dragon Bridge and Ljubljana Castle on Castle hill.

On a cold but thankfully dry day, Barbara was the perfect guide to assist my crutch wielding husband! She called the free inner city Kavalir bus to assist us around, and paced the walking according to his needs. Her knowledge was impressive but not overwhelming; just enough! She even arranged an impromptu visit for the following day to visit the Lipizzaner Horses in the Sth East of Slovenia. A local guide really is the way to see a city, and Barbara was the best. Thank you for a great day.
