“Had the most fun here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

I had the most fun here! It is more of an alternative place, but the people were more real and fun to be around. I ended up going to few bars and racing a couple of guys outside in pure fun. That might not sound like your kind of trip, but getting to know strangers and feeling like a kid again is the best form of travel.

“Great place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is a great place to go at a weekend. I got to sit outside on a climbing frame and got to speak to some locals who love to share their history and ideas of what to see and do. Recommend going.

“Awesome.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

I went to Metelkova both during the night (and a Saturday night at that) and the day. It's a great place, very different from the rest of the city. It's not tidy and not very clean, but it's damn authentic. Just walking around appreciating the street art and crazy sculptures is quite cool, and you can get some great pictures too. Very few people during the day.

Saturday night it was busting with life. There are different bars where you can go to, with different kinds of alternative music, some with admission costs and some you just walk in. The people are diverse and definitely gay friendly.

I read some reviews where people complained about feeling unsafe. Uhm, I can assure you it is 100% safe. I was there until 5 a.m. by myself, a female, and I had a great time, never had any trouble and even chatted up with some super friendly locals.

Great place if you are not into the typical by-the-books pub that you find all along the river.

“Well worth checking out even in the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by here first during the day and from a photography stand point it's amazing. Soany things going one and maybe even some staggers from the night before if you go early. At night it has a bunch of different bars that are a very nice difference to the main bars in clubs down town. Check it out. It's super safe and way nice.

“Worth a walk through”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Outside of the old city center, Ljubljana is largely characterized by Soviet-era apartment blocks. The Metelkova is a unique oasis among these buildings with its amazing murals and artwork that is well worth checking out. It's a great way to see a more contemporary, lived-in aspect of the city.
