Interesting but less known part of the medieval Ljubljana.The former monastery with church and some later added structures is worth a quick visit. There is an inviting restaurant. Far the best time to visit it is during different events

This is an old monastery which was transformed to a theater by Plecnik. Very close is the School of Desigh and Photography which became famous, as one of the students was Trump current wife. The small church is worth to visit too.

This open air summer theater is a wonderful place to be! It used to be a monastery, so it is really interesting to see, but I would advise to visit it during a concert when it's full of people - only then you get the...More
