You can not miss Prešeren Square if you are strolling down the streets of Old Ljubljana. By day and night time this square is frequented by tourists and citizens. Also this is the starting point for various guided tours.

I love that it is pedestrianised so there's no cars. It is a great location to enjoy the historical architecture, people watch, and where locals meet.
