I wasn't too impressed with this place. It isn't very big and only took 15 minutes or so to walk through. I went during the day and but I still didn't feel very comfortable here and there was an anarchy meeting going on when I was there. I can't imagine going at night when it is in full swing. It felt very dark and twisted.

I don't know if it was the time we've visited Metelkova (in daytime), but we didn't have a great experience with Metelkova as others have. We expected it to be bigger, hence the fact that they call themselves an autonomous city; it's actually a quite small place.Taking pictures from the place was being frowned upon and we were even approached by a guy who started talking on an unfriendly tone, pointing at our camera (he spoke in Slovenian so we had no idea what he was saying). Maybe it was the wrong time to visit and the wrong person to came across, but it didn't leave a good impression (also after having visited other similar places in the past like Christiania in Copenhagen, which is a very nice place).

This was an incredibly unique experience. Again, the people are very friendly and this is a wonderful place where, it appears, great things happen with revolutionaries conspiring for the progression of their city and culture. Gays are tollerated in this area and although it was closed when we were there, they actually have a gay bar.

For younger travelers or open minded adventurers, this experience should not be missed.

If you find outsider art and street art interesting, this is a must see. Everything becomes a canvas, and nothing is sacred. make sure you visit the hostel in the middle of Metelkova. I only wish I had more time to spend there since we just cruised through quickly!

There are a lot of clubs with different music (punk, reggae, popular music, electronic music...) . Drinks are very cheap, people are friendly
