The capital city of Slovenia is a center of alternative culture, and many abandoned or old buildings have been transformed into generators of cultural events, exhibition halls and galleries, clubs, non-profit centers, gathering places for artists... Amongst them are Metelkova mesto, a former army barracks, the former Rog bicycle factory, and the formerly legendary Šiška cinema now hosts world-renowned musicians. The old power plant, a magnificent monument of industrial architecture, now houses the center for performing arts, while at Križanke, which was designed by the most famous Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik, global stars perform concerts on an outdoor stage.

The Modern Gallery, National Gallery, Contemporary Art Museum, Ethnographic Museum, and Mestni Museum are just a few of the museums worth a visit in Ljubljana.

Where to eat?

How to tour the city?

If you would like to enjoy traditional Slovenian dishes, visit Vodnikov hram or Pivnica Union, which is owned by the famous Ljubljana brewery of the same name.

A boat tour on Ljubljanica is always a good choice and bicycles can be rented at every step, so you can head out to tour the city on the bike routes, which are everywhere.

It is best to reach Ljubljana castle, which offers an unforgettable view of Ljubljana and the surrounding mountains, by cable car, and then head down with a short walk. At the café-restaurant at the top of Nebotičnik, the first skyscraper in Ljubljana, sung about in a song, enjoy the panoramic view of the city.
