The Tivoli Park is the largest park in Ljubljana. It was opened in 1813 and renovated before the Second World War according to the plans of Slovene architect Jože Plečnik. Together with Rožnik and Šiška hill, it forms the Protected Area Tivoli, Rožnik and Šiška hill (Landscape Park), which covers 509 hectares.
