Had a quick browse here in the morning before heading to the train station - loads of interesting things going on in this enclave right next to the art museum and towards the left of the station

I had the most fun here! It is more of an alternative place, but the people were more real and fun to be around. I ended up going to few bars and racing a couple of guys outside in pure fun. That might not sound like your kind of trip, but getting to know strangers and feeling like a kid... More

This is a great place to go at a weekend. I got to sit outside on a climbing frame and got to speak to some locals who love to share their history and ideas of what to see and do. Recommend going.

I went to Metelkova both during the night (and a Saturday night at that) and the day. It's a great place, very different from the rest of the city. It's not tidy and not very clean, but it's damn authentic. Just walking around appreciating the street art and crazy sculptures is quite cool, and you can get some great pictures... More

Stopped by here first during the day and from a photography stand point it's amazing. Soany things going one and maybe even some staggers from the night before if you go early. At night it has a bunch of different bars that are a very nice difference to the main bars in clubs down town. Check it out. It's super... More

Outside of the old city center, Ljubljana is largely characterized by Soviet-era apartment blocks. The Metelkova is a unique oasis among these buildings with its amazing murals and artwork that is well worth checking out. It's a great way to see a more contemporary, lived-in aspect of the city.

If you are into drinking, art and hanging out and you want to try something else than the clubs and bars in the city you have to go to Metelkova. The music, atmosphere, people and prices are amazing. But it's hard to find a toilet there.

Not a huge fun of such alternative places, but Metelkova has been my favourite meeting point in Ljubljana. The place where I used to hang out with my friends very often. It is for sure better place during a summer since you can sit outside, but during a winter it is good as well... No matter how scarry it might... More

I've been to Metelkova several times. It's a subculture center, interesting and kind of empty during the day and full of different people at night.There are a lot of clubs with music for almost every taste. Drinks are cheap.

Definitely is not the normal tourist attraction because only a few adventurous come here. If you want to see the other face of the city, this is the place. Located about 15 min walking from the old town this curious street is hidden. Full of weird sculptures and painted walls it really worth a visit even if doesn't take too... More
