All great capitals of the world have something in common - little pockets or enclaves of culture, entertainment and fun outside the city centre. These areas, neighborhoods or streets are often the pulsing hearts of cities and offer experiences that are usually the perfect foil to the more sanitised and predictable ones in the more central locations.
Brunch = a long, indulgent mid-day meal in the company of a brewed coffee, sparkling cocktail or freshly squeezed orange juice. The decision is yours; all I can do is offer you my selection of the best brunch places in Ljubljana. Lucky for you, Ljubljana has quite a lot to offer.
If you are like me and always try to explore a foreign country on a deeper level, museums are great to do so. Just around 25 kilometers away from Ljubljana, tucked away in a small village of Bistra, Technical Museum of Slovenia can be found. The museum is perfect for a half-day trip from the capital.
If you are visiting Ljubljana, here are some of the most popular hiking destinations for a quick stretch of legs near our city, which you can do separately, or combined in an enchanting half-day tour like me the other day.
You can call it vandalism or you can call it art, one thing is for certain: Ljubljana is rich with creative street art and colourful graffiti. Some are just regular funny writings on the wall and some are true art pieces that should probably hang in someone’s living room. Take a walk around town and see them for yourself.
We can hardly wait that this years' winter will leave Slovenia and allow flowers, trees and other plants to colour our city green. Until then you can catch some interesting events in our capital. Check out this month’s selection.
