Metelkova, Ljubljana

3.6
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.

  • Definitely one to experience.. I'd read mixed reviews beforehand but was determined to take a look and sample the nightlife. First visited relatively early one night when it was still quite quiet...  more »
  • Unorthodox area, famous for its street art. We went there around lunch time, but no activity yet. Later in the afternoon the action seems to start. Worthwhile seeing!  more »
