Plan your visit to the National Gallery
National Gallery was renovated in January 2016 is one of the main attractions at the moment in the city of Ljubljana. The beautiful gallery that is located approximately 5 minute walk from our hotel and is really worth a visit. Here are our tips for a full and varied day.
Start your morning with a late and rich breakfast at hotel Cubo. It may be a cliché, but we’re proud to say we really do believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Our staff will be more than happy to welcome you during the week from 6:30 to 11:00 and on weekends from 7:00 to 12:00 in the hotel restaurant, located on the first floor of hotel.
After continue to The National Gallery of Slovenia which is the main art museum in Slovenia and holds the country’s largest fine art collection from the late medieval period up to the early twentieth century. It was founded as early as 1918 as the National Gallery Society with the aim of establishing a museum for Slovenian fine arts. A completely reorganised and expanded permanent exhibition of the collections returned to public view in January 2016, following an extensive renovation of the Narodni dom palace. For all of the current exhibitions and projects, that are going on click here.
After your visit, you enjoy a cup of coffee or a piece of cake in the café and confectionery, which is next to the gift shop inside the gallery. It is perfectly suited for all those who simply wish to take in the magnificent ambience of the National Gallery and having a reviving break. It has a view on one of the most important Baroque monuments in Slovenia – the Fountain of the Three Rivers by Francesco Robba.
National gallery is located on Prešernova street 24 and just across the street, you can then take a short walk along Plečnik’s Promenade that brings you from the roads and cobbled streets of Ljubljana to Tivoli Park, Ljubljana’s largest and most beautiful Park, considered being the city’s green lungs. You can also stop at Cekin Mansion, that is located at the end of the promenade and houses the Museum of Contemporary History of Slovenia.
The perfect ending of the day would be a late lunch at our brand new summer terace in front of the hotel, where you can enjoy daily lunch or a variety of snacks on a sunny day. You can also treat yourself with a glass of wine or one of our summer cocktails. In case you would preffer more private dinning choose our picnic basket and enjoy relaxing evening in Tivoli garden.
National Gallery is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10am – 6pm and on Thursdays from 10am – 8pm. The price for the regular ticket is 7 euros and they have free admission on the first Sunday of each month.
