Ljubljana is an interesting city that boasts many historical and cultural attractions. It is known as a green city with many beautiful parks and a Botanical Garden. Ljubljana's central park is Tivoli, which is a popular spot for relaxation and socializing.
The symbol of the city is the dragon located on the Dragon Bridge, and the most powerful feature of the city is certainly the Ljubljana Castle. From the castle lookout tower, visitors can enjoy the most beautiful view of the city, and there are several museum and other exhibitions in the castle premises. Ljubljana is known for its many squares, the most famous being the Town Square with the Town hall, the diocesan mansion and the well in the middle. It is one of the most beautiful Baroque ambiences in Central Europe. The most important building on the square is the Town Hall, also called Rotovz or Magistrat, today the seat of the Town of Ljubljana. The building was built in the late 15th century and was built by Peter Bezlaj. It got its present appearance between 1717 and 1719, when it was built by Gregor Macek according to Carl Martinuzzi's plans. The building was later rebuilt many times, most thoroughly in 1963. The facade is one of the finest examples of mature baroque in Ljubljana. The motif of the open shed on the massive pillars and the pentagonal tower above the front facade was certainly taken over the old town hall. In the lobby of the Town Hall are preserved a statue of Hercules with a late 17th-century lion that once stood on the Hercule well in the middle of Old Square, and a late Gothic plaque with the coat of arms, which is a remnant of an old building.
Inside the house is one of the most beautiful baroque arcade yards in Ljubljana. The following exhibitions are on display at Town Hall: Historic Atrium, Glass Atrium, Right and Central Atrium. The tour introduces visitors to the rich history of the building.
