See another side of Slovenia's capital in one of the alternative clubs of Metelkova. Often compared to Copenhagen's Kristiania, Metelkova is a self-declared "autonomous culture zone" occupying former military barracks painted with street art. Its seven buildings include a hostel set in a former prison, several clubs and live music venues, artist studios, art galleries, and the only women's center in the country. This city-within-a-city hosts numerous social and cultural events and is home to several community clubs for gays and lesbians, as well as for people with disabilities.

  • It is not to be missed to visit this must-see place in Ljubljana, located not far from the railway station, this area that is appropriate for young and old too, is very surprising, because of its tags, its facades made available to everyone for their own personal expression, its over-coloured buildings, its objects diverted and recycled, its atmosphere and atmosphere so special. I don't think the police often come to this place, during our visit in mid October 2019 there were a few groups on the site that "divagu" but nothing aggressive if we respect.

  • This is a neighborhood that was made in old military constructions. We went at night, it is a place with a lot of young life, bars, graffiti, with a very creative cultural atmosphere. It's worth knowing.
