Attractions near the Grand Hotel Union Central
Home to the city's sights
The small but perfectly formed Old Town is the only central area of the city to have survived the devastating earthquake of 1895 intact. Located along the right banks of the Ljubljanica River, the area is the home to the densest concentration of sights, attractions, restaurants and bars in the city.
Be captivated by the cobblestone street lined with historic buildings, including the atmospheric Gornji Trg with its well-preserved medieval houses, the 15th-Century Town Hall and its Gothic courtyard, and the pretty 13th-Century Cobblers Bridge.
The 45-minute drive out of the city is entirely worth the outstanding natural wonder that awaits at Postojna Caves. The adventure starts as you take the miniature electric train through the first few kilometres of the enormous 20-kilometre-long system of caverns and passages. Once you reach the Big Mountain Cavern, the walking part of the guided tour takes you through a web of tunnels and passageways, complete with jaw-dropping two-million-year-old stalactites and stalagmites in a variety of wondrous shapes.
With temperatures of around nine degrees Celsius in the deep underground cave system, make sure you bring a jacket to wear while you discover the amazing sights of these world-famous caves.
