This tour is an excellent combination of learning about the city's history, art, and architecture and enjoying a tourist boat cruise along the river Ljubljanica. It allows you to get to feel Ljubljana to the full in just two hours.
In the company of your guide, you will take a walking tour of the historical city centre during which you will be immersed in the history and stories behind Ljubljana's major sights. From the Prešernov trg square, dominated by the Franciscan Church and connected to the Triple Bridge, you will head towards Plečnik's Market and the Cathedral, continue to the Town Hall and the Robba Fountain, cross the Cobblers' Bridge, pass the National and University Library to reach the Križanke Summer Theatre, and continue towards the Kongresni trg square.
In the heart of the city, you will embark on a tourist boat that will take you along the Ljubljanica, whose interesting bridges and picturesque embankments give Ljubljana its distinctive appearance. The boat, which will afford you completely new views of the city, will sail past well-maintained embankments lined with medieval buildings with uneven roofs and pleasant riverside walks, taking you all the way to the Špica embankment, once the site of the city beach. Špica, whose name, translating as 'Pointed End', refers to the embankment's pointed shape, still somewhat resembles a beach due to its pleasant grassed and wooden surfaces where numerous locals and visitors bask in the sun on fine days. Ljubljana will reveal itself to you as a relaxed city with a vibrant life and an amazing mixture of city and nature.
