Ljubljana Castle
Not surprisingly, this hilltop fortress dominates Ljubljana and can be seen from all around the city. You can huff and puff your way to the top or give your feet a rest and take the funicular, but either way you’ll be rewarded with some breathtaking views. The guided tours are totally cheesy, costumed actors spouting predictably over-dramatic lines, although they do provide a decent historical overview of the fortress. It’s the site’s museums that really seal the deal here. There’s a well done history exhibit and the adorable Museum of Puppetry is a big hit with visitors of all ages.
