It’s getting cold and we prepared a selection of great events that will make you warm in October. There is something for everyone in Ljubljana this month. And if you’re not too cold, you can still enjoy colourful autumn in Tivoli Park.
Weekends are always wonderful in Ljubljana. Embrace the liveliness of the farmers market, take a walk around and do a bit of locally inspired shopping. An unique souvenir, new piece of jewellery or an interestingly designed piece for your home? That's what art markets are for! Visit one this weekend and be amazed how arty Ljubljana and its residents can be.
While Ljubljana is very family friendly and there are plenty of things kids can do here – from museums to the zoo and galleries, kids’ favourite are playgrounds. And the capital of Slovenia has plenty of them. So, I asked my kids to help me pick a few of the best ones. Make sure you include them in your visit of Ljubljana.
If you have visited Slovenia before or were even born somewhere in the Balkans, you probably know what štruklji are. For those of you who don't, štruklji are boiled or baked rolls of filo pastry, which can contain various fillings.
Vast plains underneath a playground of jagged peaks, slow paths, unique oval huts for shepherds, friendly people and good food. Velika Planina, arguably the biggest and oldest shepherds’ settlement in Europe that remains active up to date, is a hiking paradise for families, photographers, and those who seek a relaxing day out in unspoilt nature.
It’s so hard to say goodbye to a beautiful summer. Slowly we’ll have to except evening chills but we still have a few days before the real autumn arrives. Let’s see what will be going in Ljubljana and its surroundings this month – we prepared a selection of very diverse events for you!
