While it is cosy to stay in the picturesque Old Ljubljana, we recommend a walk to Šiška, a Ljubljana neighbourhood, a walking distance away. Start in Tivoli Park and visit MGLC or Cotemporary History Museum before hiking up to Švicarija art centre. Walk further to Kino Šiška and check out graffiti en route.
All offer great exhibitions to suit your taste and food to surprise your buds.
Here are our Top 5
While you might not be familiar with her name, she is one of the most renowned Slovenian female painters of all times. Her two most known pieces - Summer & Woman Drinking Coffee - can be seen as part of the largest retrospective of her legacy in 40 years and marking the 100th anniversary of the National Gallery, the Slovenian Louvre.
After the visit, stop by the Gallery Cafe where you can taste Luiza cake, made specially for the gallery by the local pastry shop.
There's no excuse to buy one of those €1 'Made in China' fridge magnets if you can buy a creative, locally-produced item instead.
There's nothing worse than bad coffee and Ljubljana, with its proximity to two strong ciffee cultures - Italian and Vienesse offers some of the best coffee. Two museums – City Museum & Modern Gallery – offer some of Ljubljana’s best coffee. Or stop in Črno zrno/Black bean where only Columbian coffee is served… by a Columbian. And our favourite: Café Čokl.
