We went here during the day and marveled at the amazing works of art on the walls, which can be inadequately described as graffiti. We went back in the evening but must have been unfortunate as there appeared to be very little going on, although we stopped in one of the "clubs" and had a beer and listened to some... More

This place is great either during the day or night. If you come during the day you will definitely have a chance to take some great pictures and be awed by the pinturesque buildings and the odd and eccentric decor. Some great impro performances take place here, so stay tuned and don't miss them out. At night this place takes... More

No one else will because its basically a rubbish tip. Got a Mad Max feel to it and its really a place for young kids to drink cheap booze in a scrap yard and wear grungey clothes. Not my thing but may appeal to others.

A squat in former army barracks. Metelkova is a must for any alternative culture loving traveler. Clubs, concerts, cheap drinks and relaxed atmosphere, reminiscent of Christiania in Copenhagen.

A visit to Metelkova is a must for any alternative culture loving traveler that comes to Ljubljana. Lot's of clubs, concerts and other events. A place where a lot of locals meet. And cheap drinks ;)

maybe I don't know how to appreciate "alternative art" but for me that is a place full of people which lost track in their life.

The place is very different and difficult to describe, one has to see and if you like the street art and colorful artistic stuff, you would definitely want to see this part of the town.

I honestly can not understand what is so special about this place, why tourists desire to visit it...I mean, seriously the only thing you can do here is to take photos of the psychotic sculptures for your instagram. That's it! The place itself poorly constructed and full of garbage, which is called "art". Even the clubs in here are worthless.

A place that you have to see with your own eyes. The contrast between the next door museums and office buildings makes this place even more interesting and shocking.
