Besides, cuddling with a loved one is even nicer in the cold, so a winter boat ride has its advantages!

Note: a free glass of sparkling wine is only served on the 1 PM trip. Enjoy the ride!

L is LUV. And LUV is love. If you’re looking for ideas on how to find it, we have a few suggestions.

If you fancy dating in the most comfortable way, you can simply have a drive-in date in your car.

If you prefer conventional forms of dating, you can try speed-dating in person.

In February and March, you can go on a matching date, where the dating agent Ninka will use a completed questionnaire along with a photo to find good matches, and then provide you with their contact details.

If you’re not sure how to get out there and start dating, we recommend Coffee with Ninka, who will share advice on the best ways to meet singles of your age, or how to maintain a focus on living a full and positive single life.

Alternatively, if you’re feeling bold, you could just go to the Valentine’s Ball and perhaps meet your soulmate or make new friends in a more spontaneous way.

Loom with cloth.

Weaving from A to Z Workshop (for 1 to 4 persons)

How would you go about getting clothes, if you found yourself in, let’s say, the 17th century? You’d sit down at the loom and first weave the cloth, most likely from flax, hemp or wool in Slovenia. Weaving used to be a widespread craft on Slovene territory, with a loom in almost every household. Now you can weave your own cloth in Ljubljana in one of the rare weaving studios that still remains. This is where you can learn the basics of hand weaving by trying it yourself and creating a unique souvenir from Slovene wool.
