Postcards from Ljubljana

Travel throwback to a beautiful day last June, wandering around Ljubljana.

You shouldn’t miss Metelkova (above) if you visit Ljubljana. It’s an autonomous cultural center, and due to the autonomous aspect people have compared it to Christiania in Copenhagen. There you can find art spaces, concerts, bars and of course a lot of interesting details already in the buildings.

Rog is another alternative sort of place in Ljubi, with its art spaces and skateparks. It used to be a bike factory, then it was abandoned and squatted, and last summer it was supposed to be demolished. So I stumbled upon a situation when I walked there, with a lot of spectators and construction workers and police officers. Apparently at the moment the demolition is in halt, waiting for a legal process.

Dragon Bridge. Dragon is also part of the City of Ljubljana’s coat of arms.

Another surprising element of the day was this peacock in the center of the city!

There was a “little sister” of Flow Festival Helsinki (highly recommended) in Ljubljana a couple of years ago.

As you can see, Ljubljana is a beautiful place. And as I was mostly there for short periods of time, I would really like to go again with enough time to really get to know it.
