What To Do In Ljubljana?

Tue Jan 11, 2005 10:19 pm


Hey there

I am going to Slovenia this Friday for a weekend. What is there to do for fun in Ljubljana? Are there any good bars or clubs you can recommend?

The best part about Ljubljana is that it's a fun, lively city and everything's no more than 20 minutes' walk away!

1. Go to 3 Bridges (forgot the Slovenian name, something Trg). There's lots of little bars, restaurants and cafes up and down the river.
2. The Metelkova neighbourhood is full of clubs, bars, some interesting shows and acts etc.
3. Walk up the hill to the castle and get your weekend exercise!
4. If you have time, go to Bled (lake) or Postojna (caves or jama)
5. Send your friends postcards saying "Having a Ljublj time in Slovenia!"

Have fun!

I was there for a week this past summer. Jasepl has covered pretty much everything. I have a couple of things to add:

1) Try the local Sokol beer.
2) The 3 bridges area is really lively at night. At least it was in the summer.
3) If you are an architecture buff, come prepared to take lots of pictures. There is quite a diverse array of architecture in that city. I took about 400 pictures.
4) Take in the National Gallery, National Museum, and the Natural History Museum. They are in the same area of town and only a short walk from the 3 bridges area. There are more, but those are the ones I visited.
5) There was a great daily market there in the summer near the 3 bridges area. I don't know if there is a winter equivalent, but it's worth checking out.
