Prešeren Square, Ljubljana

Prešeren Square, Ljubljana (must see)

Prešeren Square (Slovene: Prešernov Trg) is the central square of Ljubljana, amid which stands a statue of Slovene national poet France Prešeren; hence the name. The statue faces the window where Prešeren's "muse" once lived. In that building is a small statue too. On the north side of the square stands the Baroque-style Franciscan Church of the Annunciation. Hauptmann's House represents an architectural masterpiece considered to be one of the few buildings in Prešeren Square to have survived the earthquake of 1895. The Prešeren Monument is a centerpiece of Prešeren Square and is one of the most notable monuments in Ljubljana. Stretching nearby is one of the city's main shopping venues, Cop Street, heading northwest towards Nama department store. To the south, flows the River Ljubljanica traversed by Ljubljana's famous Triple Bridge (Tromostovje), built in 1929 by Joze Plecnik. In the eastern part of Prešeren stands the Central Pharmacy building; to the west, the square is lined by Wolf Street (Wolfova Ulica) bound for Congress Square (Kongresni Trg).
