Castles in Ljubljana
The castle, situated on the hilltop, majestically overlooks the city. Visible from all around the town, it is an excellent orientation point for a tourist, as well as a popular point of interest. Although the castle is generally open to the public for free (except for the tower, for which you have to pay an entrance fee), it is perhaps a good idea to join a guided tour to learn the most about its history and legends. With Ljubljana tourist card entrance is free.
Situated near the city centre, the Tivoli park offers a pleasant walk.
Initially used as a dancing hall for rich citizens, the castle was built in 1752 by count Leopold von Lamberg in the Baroque style. Located in the Tivoli park, the castle houses the National Museum of Contemporary History.
