Congress Square Tours

Ljubljana’s Congress Square (Kongresni trg) is an historical Baroque piazza uniting some of the city's most beautiful buildings and popular attractions—yet it's best known as a place to relax. Built in 1821 just a street over from the main area of old town, the peaceful square and verdant Park Zvezda (Star Park) that sits in its middle offer locals and visitors a quiet place to eat, read, and soak in views of the city's iconic hilltop castle.

The University of Ljubljana and Slovenian Philharmonic line the southern flank of the square, while the Baroque-designed Ursuline Church of the Holy Trinity and popular Kazina are found on the square's north end. Also nearby are excavations of the Roman settlement of Emona.

Though most popular in summer when an open-air cinema plays free movies in the park in August, the square's surrounding Biedermeier-style architecture, convenient cafes, and beautiful scenery make it a major stop on most walking and cycling tours of Ljubljana.

Practical Info

Congress Square, or Kongresni trg, is located in old town Ljubljana. There is no admission fee and it is best accessed on foot, but most bus lines stop in close proximity to the park.

Did You Know? Congress Square plays an important role in the national psyche as it was here that Slovenia’s independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire was celebrated in 1918, and here where the Slovenes gathered to demonstrate for freedom from Yugoslavia in 1991.
