From its earliest days through to Napoleonic times, Ljubljana has been shaped by the constant changes in the Slovenian cultural landscape. Throughout the city the Roman, medieval, Baroque and Habsburg influences have left its own distinctive legacies on the city.

Major Places of Interest

Ljubljana's architectural styles reflect the many influences of the city such as St. Nicholas church (13th century) and St. Florian Church (17th century), Ljubljana castle which overlooks the city from the hills, the Robbas fountain, the famous bridges, Miklosik park, the Roman walls, antique monuments and the Philarmonic Hall which counted among its members Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms.
