Dead on a Sunday but looks cool

We went on a Sunday afternoon which was a mistake - there was hardly anyone around and the bars were all closed. If you only have time to go on a Sunday then I'd say still go, if... read more

We went on a Sunday afternoon which was a mistake - there was hardly anyone around and the bars were all closed. If you only have time to go on a Sunday then I'd say still go, if only to see the area and take photos, but I wish we'd had more time to go back because it looks like... More

I'm fond of modern art's and hippy stile, for me it was an amazing experience to be there. I offer for everyone, who likes those things. i think it's cool, that there is a place in Ljubljana, where alternative young people meet, I really missed it in my hometown, when I was a teenager.

I walked from the city center to Metelkova on my last afternoon in town and I am so glad I made the time to visit. I only wish I also had time to visit at night to see it when all the clubs are going. If you are at all interested in art or seeing the underground side to a... More

A place for alternative culture, art, music and other cultural activites that don't get support outside Metelkova. It's also a great place for concerts, art exhibitions or just hanging out with friends. There is also a cool hostel in the area (Celica), which has been voted one of the best in the area (it's located in an ex-prison). It's a... More

If you like something a bit different, and enjoy art in all its forms then you should take the short walk out to this area, we visited on a Saturday afternoon and we were the only ones there, wandering around looking at all the art, some sculptures some graffiti and some street art.

We went here on a bike tour and wanted to spend the whole day here. So much original art and graffiti in a small area. We loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting.

Went to one of the bars tonight and asked for half cover charge so 5/2=2.5 euro each and had a great time.

I have been there several times and I never got bored. This place is different than others I have ever been. It has its own vibes, a lot of urban art and it's not the typical crowded place.

It is like strange little town in the city. Weird buildings and street arts are the highlight of this place. I was there during the day once, the place is quite dead. I return again at night, it is more lively. Imagine an area of the city with bars, it is just like that. Young people drinking and hang out... More

Some of the art was interesting, but I went during the day and it was fairly empty except for some characters that were heavily intoxicated...I've heard there is nice nightlife there but I didn't go, as far as the day time, the art didn't blow my mind.
