The imposing landmark castle towers over the city, offering spectacular views of the Ljubljana River and the attractive skyline of the old town, with the distant Alps providing a backdrop. The medieval castle with its impressive tower, which was added in the 19th century, is linked to the old town by a steep cobbled street. The castle complex includes a museum, restaurant and chapel.
