Probably one of the most exciting cultural places in the world. Former prison that was transformed into clubs, galeries, hostel ect is really friendly, colorful and nice.

I had a chance to see it only during our bike tour, stopped there to have a break and it was unfortunately raining, but the place is great for street art photography and to hang out with some friends in the evening, when the bars there are open.

A bit outside the centre, in former barracks that would have been used in a different way, artists squatted there years ago. Plenty of cool up to date works. Well worth the walk out.

I've never been to Denmark but I hear Christiana looks something like that. At night, it's definitely appropriate for people who are a bit edgy. No heels and fancy dressed here. Usually metal and rock music is playing, but there is also an amazing gay bar there with awesome pop music. During the day the atmosphere changes and is appropriate... More

It was closed when we went, but it was still great to see all the street art and alternative architecture. Must be even better at night!

On first glance, it looks a little intimidating but it's one of the friendliest and most fun places I've been to for a night out. Everyone is there for the same reason - to have fun. We went into a couple of the clubs and could take drink between them and they only cost a couple of euros each to... More

As the shops are closed on Sundays I walked to Metelkova. Unfortunately this also was closed. However I took many photos of the incredible graffiti and had the cheapest coffee in Ljubljana, only one euro at a very pleasant outdoor cafe. I would like to have seen more, but I was only in Ljubljana for the weekend. Go on a... More

If you are curious to see Ljubljana's urban culture, visit Metelkova in the night. Dozens of people are hanging outside among graffiti and strange pieces of art, eating, drinking, having fun. There are several music clubs in the area where live gig lovers of rock, metal, punk or any alternative music can have great time. It is a unique place... More
