Slovenia is slowly easing the coronavirus lockdown, with bar, café and restaurant terraces already back in business, along with smaller stores, public transport and Ljubljana Castle. More specifically, the building that’s watched over the city for centuries – and competes with Postojna Caves as the most visited attraction in the country – is now open every day from 10:00 to 18.00, including the exhibitions and Viewing Tower, plus the terrace of the Castle Café and Castle Wine Bar & Shop – although the latter are closed when it’s raining, as it is this morning in the capital.
There are also some restrictions to note under the current conditions at what. For one, the funicular isn’t yet working, so you’ll need to walk or drive up. For another, you’ll need a mask when entering enclosed spaces, such as the exhibitions, Viewing Tower or bathrooms. Finally, there are hand sanitizers everywhere that visitors are encouraged to use, plus further instructions and safety protocols at every checkpoint.
More details on the situation as it evolves in the days and weeks ahead can be found on the Castle’s website.
