Your walk continues to nearby Tivoli Park, and while at the Tivoli Castle café why not try a refreshing cocktail? Can you believe that in times gone by the Romans drank something similar on this very spot? Continue on foot along the Jakopic promenade past the National Gallery of Slovenia as far as the medieval heart of the city, where at a Slovenian inn you will experience the taste of dishes dating back to the 16th century, a period when Slovenian Protestants wrote the first Slovenian book on our soil. Continue past Zmajski most Dragon Bridge and the lively Plecnik market area and you come upon the Cathedral of St. Nicholas. From there it is not far to the funicular up to Ljubljana Castle. You can also simply climb to the castle on foot. Lunch or dinner at the castle can be postponed until the following day.
