Above the city, quite typical for a Medieval European city, stands the castle. Ljubljana castle. It was built in 15th century by the Habsburgs, later renovated and in 19th century turned into a prison.
Today it hosts a few permanent exhibitions, like Slovenian History and fun Museum of Puppetry, and often changing temporary exhibitions. There are two restaurants, a cafe, wine bar, souvenir shop and during the summer many events are organized in the courtyard.
From the top of the castle's tower, which is a bit younger, build in the middle of the 19th century, is a fabulous view all over the town.
You can reach the top of the castle by walking on one of the many paths from all sides of the hill or take the easier way by embarking the funicular. Castle is fun to explore on your own, with a guide or in an escape-room style.
And don't forget to find the escape route from the castle. They say every castle has one.
After writing a blog in Slovenian language for 10 years I have finally come to my sense and started writing one in English as well.
