Ljubljana is an interesting and pleasant city that attracts many visitors. It is known mainly for its picturesque old town, above which the symbol of the city, the Ljubljana Castle, proudly stands.
The revival of the old core and the embankments of the Ljubljanica River gave the town a new, attractive beat. The Karst river Ljubljanica flows lazily across the city of Ljubljana. The rich archeological finds from different archeological periods make it an important cultural monument not only in Slovenia but also in Europe. In the ancient past, the river may have had ceremonial significance, but it has certainly been an indispensable traffic road for many centuries. Its natural ring road was first changed by the Romans, who needed a quicker traffic connection, but later it gained a new look mainly through the construction of the Gruber Canal between Castle Hill and Golovec in the 18th century, with the construction of a riverbed in the 20th century, and the redesign of embankments and bridges in the 21st century. The present image of the beautiful Ljubljana embankments is based mainly on Plecnik's ideas and the effort of contemporary architects. They followed his designs, supplemented them with contemporary urban and architectural solutions and received the European Urban Public Space Award for their work in 2012. The Ljubljanica River, with its tidy banks, lush greenery in the warmer months, and the bypassing fauna, is perfect for walking and hiking. The city center from the Dragon Bridge to Spica and along Gradascica - which was also regulated by Plecnik - all the way to Trnovo Church is one of the most beautiful, most pleasant and romantic areas of the city. Hribarjevo nabrezje Embankment along the Ljubljanica River begins at Preseren Square with the famous Preseren Monument and the Church of the Annunciation, leads past the Fish Footbridge, Dvorni trg Square and ends at Cobbler's Bridge.
The banks of the Ljubljanica River are a lively gathering place with many outdoor cafes. The tourist boats offer the possibility of experiencing the old town with picturesque bridges, facades of buildings and embankments from a different perspective.
