'French Revolution Square' was for centuries the headquarters of the Teutonic Knights of the Cross (Križniki ). They built a commandery here in the early 13th century, which was transformed into the Križanke monastery complex in 1714. Today it serves as the headquarters of the Ljubljana Summer Festival , with an open-air theatre seating 1400 people. The Ilirija Column in the centre of the square is dedicated to Napoleon.
