If you've never been to Ljubljana before, you'd better have a fair excuse. It is a new, forward-looking city with an Italian architectural inflection in the center of Slovenia. Ljubljana owes some of its beauty to the disaster: the earthquake of 1895 reduced whole towns to rubble. But this only freed visionaries like Jože Plečnik from the rubble to create Art Nouveau masterpieces. The bus company must admit that Ljubljana is young, very fashionable and green as it can be: in 2016 it became the European Green City, a part of Europe not always known for its environmental friendliness. Tour bus will take you the city center that is now completely car-free, public transport is low-emission and there is a modern bicycle network. The squat-turned-cultural area of Metelkova is a must-see for hipsters and live music, with nightspots, bars and public art installations in the former barracks.

Do you need ideas where to go in Ljubljana? Find here top 10 places to go in Ljubljana:
1. Prešeren Square
Prešeren Square is the main square of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. The name of the place was originally called Marien place, which was named after the church. In the middle of the square is the statue of the Slovenian national poet France
Prešeren. To the north of the square is the Baroque Franciscan Church (Frančiškanska cerkev Marijinega oznanenja or simply Frančiškanska cerkev) as well as the Urbanc House from 1903. One of the main streets in Ljubljana, Copova ulica, leads northwest to the NAMA department store. The Ljubljanica River flows south of the square and is crossed by the city's most famous bridge, Tromostovje (Three Bridges), designed in 1929 by Jože Plečnik. In the east is the building of the central pharmacy, while in the west the Wolfstrasse (Wolfova ulica) leads to the congress square (Kongresni trg) with the main building of the University of Ljubljana.
2. Ljubljana Castle
Ljubljana Castle is a magnificent medieval fort with a beautiful view of the city. The Bus Company must agree that when you visit Ljubljana, it's a must, but make sure you don't forget it! If you're a history buff, you're going to love the Castle of Ljubljana. But, you may skip the discreet funicular railway that links the street to the Castle. The funicular is available all year round and is one of the easiest ways to view the city from above. The trip is over fast, you're going to Castle Hill 70 meters in less than a minute.
3. Triple Bridge
A pair of three bridges lined with stone balustrades and lanterns will lead you off Prešeren Square. The central bridge of the three is a ton older than the two that connect it and dates back to 1842. This was meant for road traffic, while the two were introduced for pedestrians at the beginning of the 1930s and was the work of Jože Plečnik, Ljubljana's most famous architect. The riverside terraces filled with poplars and the temple-like flower shop that connects with the central market colonnade on the right bank are both dating from this era.
4. Dragon Bridge
Dragons are awesome, and Ljubljana has always had a lot of legends about them! As in Wales, you'll find dragons everywhere, just keep your eyes open! The main is the Dragon Bridge in Ljubljana, 7 minutes away from the Triple Bridge. It's one of the favorite sights of the tour bus in Ljubljana, as it represents power and courage. It's also a starting point for all the shops and restaurants in Ljubljana, so it's a nice afternoon out there. Bear in mind, though, that just like the Triple Bridge, sometimes it can be really busy.
5. Tivoli Park
In a few of the streets of Ljubljanica, you can be in a green space that pushes you out for more than two kilometers. It begins with the magnificent gardens and avenues landscaped in 1813 and continue to the Rožnik Hill woodland, lined with nature trails.
6. Central Market
Tour bus wants to welcome you to the market built by Jože Plečnik. It hugs the river between this bridge and the Dragon Bridge and is situated on the site of an old diocesan college for girls that collapsed during the earthquake of 1895. This lovely colonnade on the outskirts of Prešeren Square shelters stalls selling herbs , spices and crafts, while bakery stalls, cured meat, dried fruit and nuts, dairy products, fresh fruit and vegetables and fish are also on the way. Tour bus is able to say that the market is open every day except Sunday, while the areas served have somewhat reduced opening hours for open-air stalls.
7. National Gallery of Slovenia
It is located in the Restoration Palace at the end of the 19th century and has new extensions installed in the early 1990s and 2001.

8. St. Nicholas Church
Although if it may look like another church on the outside, the St. Nicholas Church (or the Ljubljana Cathedral) is one of the main landmarks in the area. Only take a look at the side doors and the main entrance that portrays the history of Slovenia in such an unusual way! It's one of the best sights in Ljubljana, in the view of the tour bus, as the exterior of the church is designed with such austere architecture that it pulls you inside where you'll be left speechless by interior decoration and jaw-dropping frescoes. Tour bus targets are at the ceiling; you 're definitely going to leave with a sore back.
