Tivoli Park & Mansion Tips (28)

Tivoli park - the lungs of the town

I just to live i Azbetova ulica and as marathoner my intention was to run a lot. The city is not a perfect place to jogging, but the Tivoli Park is, even in winter, of course there could rain a lot of snow and the paths are then more challenging.

Take a look to picture, on summer time it is perfect place for picnic!

Tivoli Park

A fun green space in Ljubljana is the vast park to the west of the city, known as Park Tivoli. You'll find a variety of activities here, but the best are either to relax or to walk. The building at the far west end is known as Cekinov Grad, which doubles as a contemporary museum of sorts. The featured exhibit was on video game heroine Lara Croft when we visited, so we skipped it. But the flower garden and lake are definitely enjoyable to visit.

Tivoli Mansion

Tivoli Mansion is located in Tivoli Park at the end of a long walk way designed by Joze Plecnik. Originally a tower stood on the hill where Tivoli Mansion now stands. The tower, known as Turn Tower, was burnt down during a siege on Ljubljana around 1450. Podturn Mansion was later built on the former site of the tower. In the 17th century the Jesuits bought the mansion and they in turn knocked it and built a new mansion. This mansion was to be used as a holiday home.
In 1835 an amusement park was opened next to the mansion. It was around this time that the mansion was given its present name. Under ownership of Emperor Franz Joseph the mansion was renovated.
In 1865 the mansion was bought by the city of Ljubljana and now houses the International Centre of Graphic Arts and holds printmaking workshops.

Tivoli Park

Tivoli Park is Ljubljana's largest public park and is located very close to the city centre. It originated from a French design and was opened in the early 19th century. The park covers 5 square kilometres. There is a pond, botanical garden and greenhouse, children's playground and many statues and fountains located in the park.
The Serbian Orthodox Church is located nearby and Tivoli Mansion is also located in the park grounds at the end of the park's main walk way - Jakopièevo Sprehajališèe which was designed by Joze Plecnik. Plecnik left his mark on Tivoli Park when he redesigned the park between the years 1921 and 1939. The park is a lovely place for a stroll and you might even make friends with a few friendly squirrels!!!

The park

Next to the park or it is more correct to say in the park itself you can find a car parking. I think it is the cheapest in Ljubljana's center and whats more important there is no parking time limit . That is where we left our car on the one day trip to Ljubljana.
The park is very nice, well kept and as you would expect, there are some nice flowers and big trees. Besides that there are lots of interesting sculptures to be looked at.
At the time we were there there was an open air exhibition of the modern art showing some city scenes from around the world.

The Mansion

The Mansion dates from 17th century. It was the residental building 'till 1967 and today is a home to the International Centre of Graphic Arts. For the fee of about 4 euros you can see a very nice colection of prints from last century to the present days as well as some very nice peaces of contemporary art. No need to mention that it is situated in beautiful well kept Tivoli park, very close to the city center.

Tivoli Park

Located a short walk from the old town centre is park tivoli, a gorgeous park famous for its boulavards and designs by Joze Plecnik whose architecture can be seen throughout the city. There's some nice areas for sport in the park as well as a lake, indoor leisure complex and the museum of contemporary history. The greenland beyond the main park is vast and perfect land for hiking or biking. There is even a zoo there.

Have some quiet moments @ Tivoli Park

Not that the city was overwhelmingly noisy but it was like entering a warped zone as you slip behind the curtains of silence at the serenely beautiful Tivoli Park. Broad promenades with rows of lovely ornate benches backed by lush greenery made for a most lovely backdrop. The sensation is further heightened should you have chosen to enter the park via Cankarjeva Road, meaning you would have taken the rather unmatching shabby looking underpass below the rail tracks.

Here you will find the white-washed Grad Tivolski (Tivoli Castle), which actually resembles a mansion and less a castle, and a staircase guarded by 2 pairs of cast-iron dogs (also painted white). Rumours have it that the creator was so distraught by wagging tongues that he had omitted the tongue of the dogs, that he shot himself.

I have not visited the following but guidebooks have also indicated that Tivoli Park is also home to a number of sporting facilities, the International Centre of Graphic Arts housed inside Tivoli Castle and the Sequin Castle which houses the Museum of Modern History.

Tivoli Mansion

Tivoli Mansion is set in the beautiful Tivoli Park which lies to the west of the city centre. The mansion is approached by the Jakopic Promenade which was designed by Plecnik in the 1920s and 30s. When I visited, the promenade was lined with huge boards showing pictures taken of famous buildings and landscapes from around the world.

The mansion was built in the early 17th century by Jesuits who used it as a holiday home for themselves and their students. Later the mansion became first the property of the Catholic Church and then the property of the Provincial States. In 1835, the Ljubljana Kazina Society opened a summer amusement park with a pub and a café next to the mansion. It was then that the mansion was given its present name. In 1852 it was bought by the Emperor Franz Joseph and let on a life-long lease to Marshall Joseph Radetzky. On this occasion the mansion was renovated. Its façade was redecorated in Classicist style and a number of new walking paths and gardens were opened to the public. The dog statues were created by the sculptor Anton D. Fernkorn around the year 1870. Until 1967, the Tivoli Mansion was a residential building and today houses the International Centre of Graphic Arts.

Tivoli Park

West to the city center, you will fidn Tivoli Park which is Ljubljana's largest park by far. The park dates back to the early 19th century and even here, Joze Plecnik made some major changes during the 1920s and 1930s. The most famous point in the park is Tivoli mansion, a center of contemporary art housed in a 17th century building with a cllassicist facade. A classic park is found here with many paths and the Jakopic walk as its central axis. Beside that, the woods, sport facilities and the adjacent zoo makes it a perfect area for recreation.
