Studio Na Stolbi - Where the Past Meets the Present

It is mainly thanks to Frederick III of Habsburg that, in the late Middle Ages, a mighty fortress grew on the hill above the city – the Ljubljana Castle. Well, not only Frederick – thanks to his wife Eleanor of Portugal, too.

Would you like to know more about Frederick and Eleanor? Try the interactive guided tour the Time Machine.

That is why we named the modern four-star studio apartments after Frederick and Eleonor. They are located on the first floor of the Na Stolbi building, which lies along the route of the funicular railway in the green surroundings of the Castle Hill. The Na Stolbi building was completed in 2022 and handed over to the management of the Ljubljana Castle Public Institution. The institution’s offices are located on the ground floor of the building. The Na Stolbi building is a technologically modern, sustainable, low-energy, two-story building, and the studio apartments are designed according to the same principles. You’ll feel like you’re in your own living room – but with a view of the Slovenian capital.

It is thanks to me, Frederick, Duke of Styria, Carniola and Carinthia, Archduke of Austria, King of Germany and first German Habsburg Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, that this fortress stands above Laibach, the capital of the Habsburg hereditary lands of Carniola. Every time I return to these lands and see this magnificent fortress, it fills me with pride over and over again.

Frederick’s wife, Eleanor of Portugal, adds with even greater enthusiasm: “He could easily afford it, as I brought him a substantial dowry in marriage. A mighty fortress with solid walls, powerful towers and a wide defensive moat soon grew here.

This is how Frederick and Eleanor proudly introduce themselves at the Ljubljana Castle, and we proudly designed the Friderik and Eleonora studio apartments as spacious and bright rooms, distinguished by a modern design. The studio apartments offer a sleeping area, a living room, a kitchenette, a bathroom and a terrace with a view of the city.
