If the blaring trumpets, lively percussion, and jazzy riffs don’t get you to stop, the swinging couples under swaying lights sure will. This Wednesday, at Plečnik’s arcade in Ljubljana’s marketplace, the lighthearted rhythms of swing music and dance will kick off Ples na Plečnikovi Ulici: a summer-long series of weekly, free social dance nights. From Latin tango and salsa to Angolan kizomba and Viennese waltz, each week is hosted by a different local dance school and begins at 8 p.m. with a free 30-minute lesson.

Plečnik’s outdoor arcade is named after its renowned architect, Jože Plečnik, and this event celebrates the 150-year-anniversary of his birth. Whether you choose to dance or simply nod along, this is the perfect way to take in Ljubljana’s cultural scene as couples twirl beside the arcade’s arches.

"Marketplaces are city centers", says Nino Kolarev, a marketing associate at Javno Podjetje Ljubljanska Parkirišča in Tržnice (LPT). "We want to show that the marketplace is not only a place for selling vegetables and fruits, but for the young and the old to socialize together."

With so many weekly events organized by LPT– from Odprta Kuhna, featuring food stands by local restaurants, to Gin O’Clock and Nights in Ljubljana's Central Market (free, live concerts starting July 7th)— this summer, Ljubljana’s marketplace is definitely the place to be.
