On the hill above the city …
… on a 376 metre hill stands a mighty fortress – the Ljubljana Castle.
Its unique position has long ensured its role as a safe refuge, a strategic point or a residence. Due to its dominance, the castle soon also became a symbol of the city. Through the centuries, it has experienced various fates, frequently changing its function, but there is no doubt that it is and will remain a symbol of the Slovene capital. The Ljubljana Castle is the most visited and interesting tourist attraction of the capital, with more than a million visitors each year.
