Discover the Joys of Castle Life

Castles usually had the most beautiful vantage points, and the Ljubljana Castle is no exception. Castle cellars and storerooms were always full of the finest selection of delicacies, and castle halls were the stage of the best artists of their time. It is the same now. Yet there is one big difference: today, everyone who appreciates history, art and the joys of everything that is good is welcome at the castle.

Walls with Stories

Above Ljubljana, the nobility of medieval architecture goes hand in hand with the art of contemporary architecture. The renovated rooms and halls preserve the stories of the past while also hosting new ones. The castle dungeon whispers its dark secrets and the Viewing Tower opens a unique view of the horizon.
