In the centre of the city, at the top of the hill, above the slow Ljubljanica river, there’s a castle. Not just any castle, it’s Ljubljana Castle. A mighty medieval fortress, a symbol of the Slovenian capital Ljubljana is an interesting tourist point, the idyllic grounds for long strolls just a glance away from the lively city centre. Although much smaller in size than most famous castles around Europe, it has a characteristic shape with one tower sticking out. The green/white flag hanging from a pole at the top viewing platform can be seen from the city centre, and the platform is a nice viewing point for the city and even surrounding villages and towns. And climbing the inner circular stairway is an adventure on its own.
