Preseren Square (Presernov Trg)
Located in the New Town at the foot of the iconic Triple Bridge, Preseren Square (Presernov Trg) is one of Ljubljana’s most famous public spaces and a popular meeting place for both locals and tourists. Perched by the riverside on the cusp of the Old Town and feeding many of the city’s main thoroughfares, Preseren Square makes the perfect spot from which to explore the city.
This is the busy heart of Ljubljana, lined with elegant shopping boutiques and atmospheric cafés, and ringing with the sounds of street musicians and entertainers. Although laid out in the late 19th century by architect Maks Fabiani, many of Preseren’s buildings underwent a makeover in the 20th century, bestowing an array of impressive Art Nouveau façades on the square. Additional architectural highlights include the 16th century Franciscan Church of the Annunciation; the Secessionist Hauptmann House, designed by Ciril Metod Koch; and the exquisite Urbanc House (Centromerkur).
Dedicated to beloved national poet France Preseren, the square’s namesake is honored by the prominent central statue, a poignant sculpture by Ivan Zajc, which depicts the poet gazing over at the statue of his great love across the square.
