Located at the centre of Ljubljana Basin, Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and its most impressive point of attraction for tourists. The city has many attractions that anyone would like to see. This article is about the top five impressive things to see in. The Ljubljana Castle has the touch of both the Gothic and the renascent architecture. Built in the 12th century, this castle served as home for the Margrave and later the Dukes of Carniola. Its present features still reveal a touch of art that dates back to the 1848.

The next stunning sight to see in Ljubljana would be the Town Hall whose existence dates back as far as the 18th century. This building was built into a Gothic style between 1917 and 1919 and later renovated by Gregor Maček with a Venetian touch. The Ljubljana Cathedral which is consecrated to Saint Nicolas is one of the sights to behold. Its green dome and twin Towers make it stand out as a stunning work of art. It is one of the historic monuments that tell of the faith and the religious tradition of the people of Slovenia.

At the Prešeren Square is the Franciscan Church of the Annunciation which is another religious relic. It is the Parish Church and it was built between 1646 and 1660. The altar was designed by Francesco Robba and the frescos within the church were painted by the famous Matej Sternen. The 13th century building, called the Nebotičnik is another thing to see before leaving this city. Designed by Vladimir Šubic, this structure has served as a centre of business and residences to many people. It has coffee shops on the upper floors and a deck of observation.
