The scenery of castle buildings will bring us picturesque images of the city’s history. Stories and testimonies take us to a time when the fate of people was shaped by the will of the noblemen. Ljubljana, as the capital of Slovenia, hides some beautiful smaller and larger castle buildings that stretch throughout the entire area of Ljubljana.
The most famous is, of course, Ljubljana Castle, which is located on Castle Hill and already in the Middle Ages protected old Ljubljana from invaders. The second, slightly less known castle is Fužine Castle, located on the outskirts of Ljubljana.
This trip is suitable for all the enthusiasts of castle architecture and all those who want to get to know Ljubljana a little bit differently. First, the trip will lead us to the outskirts of Ljubljana, where in the middle of the workers’ housing estate lies the pearl of Renaissance castle architecture – Fužine Castle, which offers a home to the Museum of Architecture and Design.
After a guided tour of the museum, we will head towards the center of Ljubljana. After a guided tour of Ljubljana and free time, we will take the funicular to Ljubljana Castle, which, in addition to a beautiful view of the capital, also offers an insight into the history of the city and its surroundings.
I’m always fascinated by architecture, so my family and I decided to go together on this trip with the agency Mi znamo to explore castle architecture. It was wonderful!
