Ljubljana Castle stands in the centre of the city. It's an important part of the city and it has been so for almost a thousand years. It was a home for the carinthian Dukes, Habsburg monarchs, prisioners, military stronghold and in 1905, the castle was bought by the Ljubljana Municipality, who settled it. The residents stayed there until the mid-1960s. Now it serves as a touristic attraction, museum, monument and a romantic place to get married.
