Friderik the Castle Rat Souvenir Shop

With Ljubljana's spectacular castle proudly overlooking the city there's surely no better place to purchase souvenirs and keepsakes than from its very own gift shop. 'Friderik' is named after the castle's oldest resident, Friderik the rat, who was one of the first inhabitants some five hundred years ago. Friderik is the castle prison rat. Although he shares his name with Emperor Frederick III of Habsburg, who erected the fortress on the Castle Hill, he has in fact lived here much longer. He knows all of the castle secrets and every castle stone. If you meet him, he can tell you many interesting stories or give you an idea for an attractive gift from the Castle Shop. You'll find a superb range of goodies including hats, slippers, jewellery, stationary, mugs and clothing as well as a delightful range of consumables such as honey, chocolate and liquors. To find out more about Friderik and his wonderful stories visit the shop where you'll also see him emblazoned onto some of his favourite products. Or visit the online store here.
