The enchanting Jakopič Promenade, a picturesque walkway, has been gracing the city since 1930's. Named in honor of the esteemed Slovenian impressionist painter, Rihard Jakopič, this charming path bears witness to the rich cultural heritage of Ljubljana.

Designed within the scope of Jože Plečnik's visionary urban planning, the promenade's creation is a testament to Plečnik's renowned architectural brilliance. Carefully crafted with attention to detail, the promenade seamlessly blends art and nature, providing a serene escape for both locals and visitors.

As you amble along Jakopič Promenade, prepare to be captivated by the outdoor gallery, a showcase of artistic talent that adds a touch of magic to the ambiance. In addition, the "Tičistan" area, thoughtfully renovated for our feathered friends and avid bird enthusiasts, invites you to partake in the joy of feeding the birds, fostering a delightful connection with nature.

The path leads gracefully to the majestic Tivoli Castle, gracefully nestled at the foothills of Rožnik hill. Before the castle's grand entrance, you'll discover a delightful and mesmerizing fountain and an exquisite staircase adorned with the famed cast iron sculptures of tongueless dogs – an unforgettable sight that shouldn't be missed.

Wander through history and artistry on the Jakopič Promenade, a timeless gem woven into the fabric of Ljubljana's cultural tapestry. With each step, you'll find yourself immersed in the beauty of architecture and creativity, experiencing the very essence of the city's soul.
