Dragon Bridge Tours

star-4.5
9 Reviews
Dragon Bridge
At each entrance to Ljubljana’s dramatic Dragon Bridge, a pair of menacing green dragons stand watch, their stone-sculpted wings poised for flight and fire-breathing tongues darting out of their mouths.  Erected in 1901, the striking quartet of dragons have become one of the city’s most memorable landmarks, but the statues are more than just aesthetic monuments. The mythical creatures are not only symbolic of the city’s founding (allegedly settled by Jason and the Argonauts after valiantly defeating a dragon) but local legend dictates that the dragons will swish their tails when the bridge is crossed by a virgin. 

Crossing the Ljubljanica River just east of the equally impressive Triple Bridge, the Dragon Bridge is now one of the city’s most important bridges, connecting the modern city with the Old Town. Originally built and named for the Hapsburg Emperor, Franc Jozef, the more fitting nickname of the ‘Dragon bridge’ soon stuck, but the inscription of the side of the bridge still reads his dedication. The masterpiece of Dalmatian architect Jurij Zaninovic, the bridge is a much-celebrated example of the city’s Art Nouveau architecture, constructed from reinforced concrete and decorated with elaborate balustrades and original 20th-century street lamps.

Address: Connecting Kopitarjeva ulica and Resljeva cesta, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana private walking tour with a local

Ljubljana private walking tour with a local

star-5
This tour is definitely different for many reasons: - it is run by locals and locals only. We are not only licensed tour guides but have also lived in Ljubljana for decades and know the city like our own pocket. - most of the guides have high formal education, and are glad to explain more also about economy, art, politics, contemporary social issues and how people of Slovenia live today. - the tour is a private tour. Which means we dedicate our time and knowledge to you and to you only. It also means you do not have to share the attention and squeeze with 30 other tourists, which often happens at "free" or other non-private tours. - we are aware of negative impacts of tourism on local environment. We will always present you locally made products and not products of multinational companies and will introduce you to sustainable tourism practices in Ljubljana. - the tour can be customized. - we will not bore you with numbers and years of every laid brick. The tour is also fun :).

Ljubljana on and off the beaten track with a local

Ljubljana on and off the beaten track with a local

True, you heard it right. Ljubljana is a beautiful old town with centuries-old historic buildings, narrow streets, beautiful Baroque churches and monuments, numerous street cafes and restaurants. But Ljubljana is more than that. There are also buildings and areas in the center of town that once served military or manufacturing purposes and were abandoned due to contemporary political, social and economic circumstances. Since then these areas have been populated by squatters, artists and bohemians, who have turned them into zones of creativity, liberal thought, solidarity with marginalized social groups and into zones of independent arts. Join us on this tour, where we visit alternative parts of town, and we also walk through the old town past the sights that testify to the rich history of the city from the ancient Romans through the Middle Ages to the present.

Run With Me Ljubljana

Run With Me Ljubljana

star-5
THE CASTLE RUN Our goal is to make our way up to and back from the historic, Ljubljana castle. Although we have some uphill running in the first half of the tour, the magnificent city view we experience from the castle makes it all worthwhile. Before we start the ascent, we will visit park Tivoli to see the exhibition of large-format photographs, open throughout the year. We take a different route to and from the castle, so manage to explore all of the city's major attractions, like the works of the famous 20th-century architect Jože Plečnik, Dragon bridge, Prešeren Square, Central market, Robba Fountain and many more… We will take care of the route, but you are in charge of the pace :)

Ljubljana bike cruise | Private trip

What a great way to explore Ljubljana – on wheels! Not only the main attractions, located in the pedestrian zone, but an unique opportunity to cover a wider area without skipping the cozy stops where locals enjoy soaking up the city vibe. Hop on a comfortable fat-tire stylish beach cruiser bicycle and enjoy Ljubljana from a different perspective. The main advantage of exploring the lively capital on two wheels is the ability to see interesting places outside of the pedestrian city center.
