There are plenty of things to do in Ljubljana, but how do you deal with "sweater weather"? Sure, there are museums, galleries, indoor events, exhibitions etc. but if you are not in the mood for any of these things you can always find a cosy place to hang out - alone or in company.
There is always something going on in Ljubljana - you step out of your apartment, hotel room or hostel and instantly find yourself right in the thick of it. Bustling food markets, impromptu concerts and big gala events are right at your doorstep, sometimes even literally. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t dig a bit deeper. The locals will tell you that some of their favorite events are the indie festivals, the ones that haven’t been on every blog and in all the guidebooks yet.
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.
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.
