TOUR AND RUN DETAILs
 

THE CASTLE RUN

The meeting point of this approximately 8 km long guided running tour is in Congress Square, in front of the Museum of Illusions (Kongresni trg 13), where the tour starts and finishes. 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 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 for the route, but you are in charge of the pace :)

Price: 1 person: 35 EUR, 2 people: 50 EUR, 3 or more: 60 EUR (maximum 6 per group).

THE BEST OF LJUBLJANA

This run covers many of the same areas as The Castle Run, covering the highlights of the centre mentioned above, but we avoid running up and downhill. Therefore we will see the castle from the city, but not visit it. In addition to visiting all the major attractions in the historical part of the city, we will also run to Europe’s most famous urban squat, “Metelkova City Autonomous Cultural Center". It has gone from being a squat in a former army barracks to one of the best known attractions in Ljubljana, and is full of interesting art. This guided tour is 6 km – 7km long, but we can extend it on request. The meeting point is in Congress Square, in front of the Museum of Illusions (Kongresni trg 13).
