Stari Trg, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Even with a smattering of tourists, the cobbled streets around Stari Trg look like something out of fairytale, as befits the oldest part of Ljubljana. The Herculov Fountain, just off Stari trg, is a replica of the 17th century original. Built between 1628 and 1630, the Stična mansion, which originally housed the abbots of a Cistertian monastery in the village of Stična, is one of the most impressive buildings in the neighbourhood.
