Ljubljana

Slovenia


I’m enthusiastic for everything, I love new places and sometimes I don’t have to go far away to experience them. Journeys to Ljubljana are always short but very rewarding, rich in atmosphere.

It seems this little capital is one of those hidden secrets of Europe. Architect Plečnik for me is the first association to Ljubljana, his work is all over the city.  But the weirdest part of Ljubljana is the area referred to as Metelkova. This area was squatted by artist and now is a nightlife heaven. I love coming back and spending time adventuring with good friends.

My favorite time to visit Ljubljana is during Christmas holidays. Ljubljana city center has unique light installations, contributed by artist. On the river bank are situated stands serving roasted chestnuts and mulled wine. Seemed like the perfect fit.  

TIP: Don’t forget to visit Ljubljana castle, it offers an outstanding view over the city.

I hope you like this little photo diary I put together to share my time adventuring through Ljubljana. Let me know if you have visited Slovenia and how did you like it. If anyone has any feedback I’d be so appreciative to receive your comments and questions below.

  5. Haven’t been to Slovenia for so long that it feels as if I’ve never been :) Ljubljana looks beautiful and I keep hearing nothing but great impressions from people who visited. Might have to look into booking a weekend trip.

  6. What a cute city, I’m always fascinated by how cosy and tiny a European capital can be, and Ljubljana definitely has those features. I haven’t been there yet, the only part of Slovenia where I’ve been was just across the border from Trieste, on the mountains. Such a pretty areas, and we stayed in a lovely quirky hostel in the middle of nowhere and it was so peaceful!

  9. I really enjoyed my time in Ljubljana when I was there in summer, so this does bring back memories :) Metelkova was pretty cool, but I saw it during the day, so guess I have to go back!
