A pleasant place to walk to and take pictures, see around and that is about it. Away from the city buzz.

Pleasant, but nothing extraordinary. Near the University, and has a small dusty seating area hidden to side. Monument is beautiful like many are. Not a must-see. Close to Le Pettit Cafe and Pri Mraku.

This is just a small square located in the vicinity of the Krizanke monastery. There's no anything particularly noteworthy to justify a trip here alone, but the area is quite nice and it's pretty close to the old town.

On the square there is the Summre Theater (Krizanke), also a work of Plecnik. There is an obelisk to the memory of the French revolution and Napoleon.

Secluded square near the city centre. Home of the large obelisk dedicated to Napoleon as a representative of French revolution. Without going into sense of that notion, rather unexpected place to find monument to Napoleon. Also, very relaxing and quiet place. Worth visiting. Recommended.

An unique slovenien great obelique monument to the memory of Napoleon is in the centre of the square, with a very nice lunch bar in front of it.
