The Town Hall is already nice from outside. Inside are exhibitions of various regional artists. It's worth exploring this beautiful building.

Ljubljana's Town Hall is one of the most represantative examples of city's typical architecture, which is, I must admit, gorgeus. 'Magistrat' building is situated in the city centre, so you can't really miss it, and you shouldn't, because it's really magnificent.

Originally gothic building, than baroque renovation with some Venetian inspiration. Before all the weddings took place here, bu now they are at the castle. Next to the town hall is a beautiful replica fountain of Francesco Robba, the original is in National gallery.

This is an attractive old structure along the main street in the old town. Due to limited time on this visit I didn't go inside, but even from the outside it's still a pretty looking building.

We were surprised, and thrilled to find this beautiful, historic building open to the public when we arrived late on a Friday evening. We enjoyed learning about the many awards received by the city - and some of the incredible history. Thank you for so many great experiences in the beautiful and incredible city of Ljubljana. We will be back... More

Interesting building from the late 15th century with old Renaissance courtyard with frescoes. Check also the exhibitions (there are several spaces for them)! In the July 2016 there were very informative exhibition depicting how the big part of Ljubljana has been transformed into a car-free zone during the last years.
