Prešernov trg square
Kongresni trg square
Its south end, the site of the former Provincial Mansion, where the Congress took place, is now occupied by the University of Ljubljana building. Not far away from it is the Slovenian Philharmonic building and next to it a Bidermeyer building housing the oldest Slovenian publishing house, Slovenska matica, established in 1894. The north end of the square is occupied by the neoclassical Kazina building. The Zvezda park, which stretches across the central part of the square, is the site of several historical attractions.
The Cathedral (Church of St. Nicholas)
The Butchers' Bridge, which was built in 2010, connects the Central Market's colonnade, designed by the architect Jože Plečnik, with the Petkovškovo nabrežje embankment. It stands on the site where Jože Plečnik envisaged a bridge almost a hundred years ago. Its concept is to some extent artistic – it is adorned with statues and sculptures by the renowned Slovenian sculptor Jakov Brdar.
Church of St. Michael
Due to the marshy ground, the church is built on piles. Its structure is partly made of wood. An interestingly designed stairway leads to the doorway in the church's slim belfry with multiple openings.
Volčji Potok Arboretum
Streams and lakes, offering habitats to water plants and animals, bring a special dynamic to the park. The Arboretum also features specially marked paths leading through beneficial energy points. In the old part of the park you can take a break in the summer café and there is also a large playground for children.
