Autumn in Ljubljana is the perfect time to enjoy good food and wine, with traditional culinary events lining up one after the other. Most them have united under the November Gourmet Ljubljana festival, taking place throughout the whole of November.
Go for the local flavours! Within the framework of the Taste Ljubljana project, selected restaurants offer the traditional dishes of Ljubljana, which are made from local ingredients and prepared by using modern cooking methods.
Go for the local flavours! On your trip to the Central Slovenian region, you can enjoy Slovene cuisine in its authentic environment - in traditional village pubs and on homesteads.
Traditional Slovenian cuisine and its modern variants reflect the huge diversity of Slovenia's landscape found in a relatively small area.
Even though Central Slovenia is not a wine-growing region, Ljubljana has been awarded the international title of a "City of Vine and Wine", and that is no coincidence.
The culinary diversity of Ljubljana can also be experienced at numerous small restaurants and bistros offering a wide and varied choice of food and good wines.
The culinary variety of a city is perhaps best reflected in the choice of fast food and street food on offer. Ljubljana, whose fast food is most obviously influenced by Balkan and Mediterranean cuisine, is no exception in this regard.
In Central Slovenia you can taste an immensely varied choice of delicious sweet treats, from superb cakes and other confections available from the renowned cake shops to sweet delights typical of Ljubljana and Central Slovenia.
On Fridays from mid-March to October, the Ljubljana Central Market hosts a street food market that you simply should not miss. At the market, called Open Kitchen, you can experience the delights of freshly cooked food prepared by different Slovenian chefs right there in front of you, on the market stalls.
