Vodnik Homestead

Is reading one of your favourite things to do, but you like it even more when someone else reads to you? This house of reading, writing and storytelling is a centre for all those who love nothing more than to curl up with a book under a blanket. Time is forgotten as soon as you enter the Vodnik Homestead, and many visitors are inspired to write something themselves. Test your skills in the Writers’ Hub, or draw inspiration from other masters of the written word. Not only is Ljubljana a UNESCO City of Literature, the Homestead is named after one of the greatest Slovenian literary figures – Valentin Vodnik. The space is ideal for gathering, reading, talking and lengthy discussions on all things literary. And we suggest you don’t leave without buying at least one original print by a Slovenian illustrator, to remind you of your visit and decorate a wall.


From the end of January, Vodnik's homestead is under construction. During the renovation, the programs of Vodnik's Homestead Šiška with the gallery, Fairy Tale Studio, Center of Illustration and Ljubljana offices, the UNESCO City of Literature and the Library under the Canopies, will move to the city center, in the Trubar Literature House, at Stritarjeva Street 7, where they will be held under the name of Vodnik's Homestead Center.
