November in Ljubljana is the ideal time to enjoy good food and Slovenian wines. You won’t be hungry, that’s for sure. There is a also special and new November Gourmet culinary festival. We prepared a selection of events and we’ll take care that you’ll enjoy your stay in our capital.

Ljubljana Wine Route

Let's start this November with the glass of fresh Slovenian wine! The event named Ljubljana Wine Route takes place in the old city centre and marks St. Martin's Day, when, according to Slovenian tradition, grape must officially turns to wine. Ljubljana Wine Route brings together winemakers from all the wine-growing regions of Slovenia. Wines and traditional food are available to visitors both for tasting and purchase at favourable prices. This is also the first bigger event of this year’s November Gourmet Ljubljana Festival. So, join in and cheers!
