Place is a paved area between parliament, fine shopping mall, biggest bank, congress and cultural center and another huge building. It is not communist architecture – too small, no classicism, no realistic sculptures around. On small figurative monument and some abstract sculptures are far away from pathetic socialist buildings and sculptures. People visit mainly the shopping mall (Maximarket) or the... More

One can imagine mass rallies taking place here during the communist era. It's a large square, nothing too much to see in itself, but for the history of the place it's still worth a visit. A few communist style monuments to admire.

The Slovenian Parlament is across the street, on the other ens Cankarev Dom, the big congress and cultural center. There are some metal statues on the square. Surrounded by ugly huge office buildings.

Apart from it being the biggest square in the city, it's also adjacent to the National Assembly building. Across from the square from it there are two big corporate buildings. Other than this, not much to see or do here.

There's not much to see so if you spend 10 minutes there, that'll be enough. However you should definitely go there because the buildings are quite fascinating and represent the communist era quite accurately.

The square is just big piece of concrete. It used to be a parking ground, but now is empty - there is only underground parking- usefull in this part of town. There are some small parks around, socialist monuments and the Parlament.

Most of this square is modern minimalism that leaves a lot to be desired. Even the parliament building is function over form until you get to the entrance. Maybe they make the rest of the building plan so that this bit stands out more. Surrounding 8 doors are 54 statues of Slovenians at work and play all without the benefits... More

If you are at the Square of the Republic take some time to find the Slovenian Parliament building across the square. The face of the building is covered with carvings in the Socialist Realist style. Local people are shown in their everyday lives doing things that benefit the whole society. I wish there was an explanation about the artwork but... More

This square is actially a parking lot. There are hudreds of cars parked on it. Nothing else. However, there is a parliament across the street from this sqaure on one side and there is Cankarjev dom, the leading cultural venue, on the other side of the square.
