The Urbanc House, built in 1903, is an art nouveau gem on Preseren Square. On the exterior take a look for the clamshell shaped glass awning and a statue of Mercury, the Roman god of commerce.

The building now houses Centromerkur, Ljubljana's oldest department store, and while I didn't stop in to shop, I did take a peek at the interior where you'll find an elegant staircase, a figure representing craft since fabric is sold here and mostly original wood furnishings.

Address: Preseren Square
