Found this area by chance after visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art. Very unusual outdoor art, graffiti and use of recycled objects. Worth a visit in the day time too, not just for the students...keep an open mind.

I was hoping for more "art" and less "bohemia." I was glad it wasn't dark when we were there. I did not feel entirely safe.

If you're like me and you don't like clubs with loud electronic music, metelkova might be a place for you! People are great, they have many different clubs with different music and drinks are very cheap! I visit Metelkova everytime I'm in Ljubljana.

This was such a pleasant surprise and so much fun! It's an old army base converted into artistic hipsterish clubs/bars with fun and inventive facades on the outside. Cannot reccomend this more! Bar Tiffany (a gay bar) was so much fun and my friends and I had an absolute blast!

Once you get over the looks of the place, it's really a lot of fun :) there's something for everyone - it even has a LGBT bar

An amazing place with good vibes, great people, extremely lively and fun. Quite unlike any place I've seen in my life. Worth visiting, even if you go alone, as its extremely easy to find interesting company!!

Metelkova was a bit smaller than I expected. Still lots of things to see there. I would recommend going at night (during the weekend) as the place is a bit desolate at daytime, because there are no residential properties there.

Beer is cheap and interesting company is easy to find. Cleanliness is not to be expected. Avoid bathrooms at all cost. Seriously, pee behind a car.

If you are interested in different places than your usual museums and castles, this is a great location to visit. Located just off the museum square (which in itself is pretty boring). Sometimes called Metelkova market, it has got nothing to do with a market and is mostly a "city within a city" as the locals like to call it.... More
