This unique little artists' community is a museum, gallery and site all of its own, with some intriguing and photogenic art on display. It's made all the more special by the fact that the rest of city-centre Ljubljana can seem a little staid and uniform by comparison.

I have been to Ljubljana 3 times and discovered Metelkova only this time. Getting there from the old city was fun because we went through small streets with graffiti till we got there. Metelkova is a very small alternative and counter culture neighborhood. It has the Ethnography museum, a nice hostel, pubs with varied kinds of music to your liking:... More

If you are looking for a place away from all the commercial places in the city center, this is the place to be. Got there to an electronic party where the party went until 9 am or so... People were great, many students, artists and alternative people.

Located on the site of former military barracks, this 12,500 sq m site has graffiti walls, outdoor sculptures, funky mosaics, alternative music bars and even a really nice hostel. We went with our young son and he couldn't have enough of it. There are so many pieces to explore and so much detail, it makes for a great afternoon.

Its definitely not the type of neighbourhood i would be comfortable roaming at night. The artwork in the form of spray painting, metal work, and ceramics that decorate the eerily absent buildings create an unsettling atmosphere that i can only describe as "twisted". The artwork that portray deformed creatures and trippy psychedelic experiences left me at a loss for words.... More

One of the most unusual and colorful places around Slovenija! Had an awesome time there. Don't forget to Visit Celica and go for a drink at the many bars around . A very unique experience!

I stumbled on this area after it being mentioned in a tour group and thought it would be interesting. It is the most bizarre yet cool place in the city with its grungy artwork and vibrant graffiti. I only went during the day so it was quiet but I really enjoyed all the visuals in the area and it sparked... More

We visited in the day time so it was quiet, it is very grungy and unusual and for people with a certain taste. It is worth a visit as its not to far away from central area.
