Event is part of the festival Festive December in Ljubljana

Feel the vibrancy and cheerful atmosphere of festive Ljubljana at the four Christmas markets held in its historic city centre.

Warm yourself up with a cup of mulled wine or aromatic tea and browse the green stalls to find some gifts for your loved ones. The Christmas markets are accompanied by a programme of festive events held daily in the nearby streets and squares throughout December.

This year, the Christmas markets are held at four locations, namely at the Breg embankment, at the Petkovškovo nabrežje embankment, in the Central market at Pogačarjev trg square and in the courtyard of Ljubljana Castle. They are offering fashion accessories, products by Slovenian designers, headwear, gloves, scarves and other things to keep us warm on cold winter days, arts and crafts items, various Slovenian culinary products, desserts, honey, schnapps and festive souvenirs.

They are accompanied by catering stalls, scattered all over the city centre, offering mulled wine, warm tea, liqueurs, sausages, various grilled dishes and other foods.
