Ljubljana is one of my all time favorite cities – super fun, artsy, beautiful, and historic.
Ljubljana is now one of my favorite cities, and has made it to My Top Favorite Cities List! I think everyone should go check out this city at some point =)
Money / Prices
Slovenia uses the Euro, and prices are average to below average (not too expensive):
€1.20 » Bus ride to city center
€2-€5 » Beer
€4-€10 » Average food price
What To See/Do
When I was at the castle, there was a fancy event taking place, so I didn’t take any pictures (because I didn’t want to disturb the event), but this is the view from outside of the castle:
City Center & Old Town
Located under the castle, it is the historic and old part of the city… Nice shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, etc.
Along the river there are beautiful cobblestone walking streets. Take a stroll and pop into cozy cafes and nice shops.
Akc Metelkova (Autonomous Cultural Center)
This is a MUST! This is my favorite place in all of Ljubljana! It’s a section of the city that is very artsy and creative with a bunch of bars…. graffiti all over the buildings and art in the streets! The bars are more like houses that sell alcohol because there’s no regulation to stay inside. Most people go in, buy a beer, and then walk outside and sit on the playground or in the tree house.
If you’ve been to Copenhagen, Denmark, then you might know of the crazy area of town called “Christiania.” Metelkova in Ljubljana is just like Christiania in Copenhagen =)
