Ljubljana Castle

ljubljana-castlePerched on top of Castle Hill (Grajska planota) and dominating the city skyline to the south, Ljubljana’s magnificent castle stands on the site of several former defensive buildings in a hilly area of land stretching away to the south of the old town.

The current ensemble of buildings originates from necessary 16th-century reconstruction work following the earthquake of 1511, with several later additions. The main points of interest for the visitor are the Outlook Tower (Razgledni Stolp), built in the 19th century and raised a further 1.2m by the government in 1982. The tower’s Virtual Castle screens a 12-minute film showing an interesting and informative history of the castle.
