Ljubljana Castle (Ljubljanski grad) was built at the top of the hill. It had various purposes over the time. . The oldest part of the castle are outer walls of the Chapel of St. George built 1489. All other buildings are rebuilt or built later, mostly in the 16th and 17th centuries. It served as a fortification, as a seat of the provincial rulers and even a regional prison. Nowdays it hostes numerous events, cultural and other, like the official receptions and congresses .
The castle is surely major attraction of the city, so it is not to be missed.
