Petkovškovo nabrežje is located in the very city center. Just two years ago it was really quiet part of the city center, but then in 2013 after complete renovation it really revived. Within this renovation new ground surfacing was placed, new trees were planted and two viewing platforms were built. So it became an urban pedestrian-only area with lots of cafes, bars, and restaurants.
From viewing platforms you can see the Ljubljana Castle and river Ljubljanica. During the walk along Petkovškovo nabrežje, you can see the new glass bridge, named the Butcher’s bridge, which is known as the Ljubljana Bridge of love. Countless lovers have symbolically locked their love on the locks and then threw the keys into the river Ljubljanica that flows underneath.
If you cross the Butcher’s bridge from Petkovškovo nabrežje, you come to Ljubljana marketplace located on Pogačarjev trg, which is the largest and most important marketplace. The marketplace is open every day in morning hours. Here you can find all kinds of homemade fruits and vegetables, mushrooms and berries, meat and meat products, flowers and plants, medicinal herbs and of course also souvenirs.
From the end of March to the end of October, on Fridays, you can visit the open kitchen in this marketplace, where you will have the opportunity to experience preparation of food in front of you. Dishes are prepared from selected restaurants from all over Slovenia and they are preparing everything, from traditional Slovenian cuisine to international cuisine.
Twice per year in April and in October whole weekend is reserved for Beer&Burger fest, where Slovenian restaurants present their burgers in an Open Kitchen and different suppliers present various types of beer, from small domestic brewers to large international brewers.
As this area is very lively during the day, but yet quite at night, it’s also a great place to stay overnight.
