Ljubljana CastleThe imposing Ljubljana Castle towers over the city, offering spectacular views of the Ljubljanica River and old town skyline with the distant Alps providing a stunning backdrop. A steep cobbled street winds its way from the old town to the medieval fortress, which dates back to the 11th century. The castle complex includes a museum, restaurant and chapel, with access to the castle provided by a scenic funicular ride. Visitors can admire the view from the castle's impressive tower, stroll through the tranquil grounds, learn about Slovenian history at one of the museum exhibitions, or attend one of the many cultural events hosted at the fortress.
