Metelkova, Ljubljana
(3.9/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Metelkova and other attractions in Ljubljana using our Ljubljana trip itinerary planner.
