“Je v Siski se kaj odprtega?”

“Is anything still open in Šiška?” sang Vlado Kreslin, Slovenia’s most popular folk-rock musician, in one of his songs. Back in the early 90s, the answer would have been “not much.” Today, it’s an entirely different story. Šiška is a lively cultural quarter of Ljubljana, with many points of interest to draw the intrepid tourist who is in search of something alternative and intriguing, beyond the bustling touristic center of the city. But it’s also something of a secret—ask folks from elsewhere in Ljubljana and they might not be aware of just how cool Šiška has become, and how many points of interest await visitors willing to explore beyond Ljubljana’s cozy center.
