”We are still dancing on the very edge of the world.” This is Mankica Kranjec‘s favorite quote, and she surely tries to live by it. We’ve been lucky to meet Mankica in various places in the world – it’s always a pleasure! She’s an amazing professional photographer for hire all over the world – check out her website.
Ljubljana is Mankica’s hometown and it shaped her in the person she is today because of a few things: the people are connected, friendly and locals call each other by name. “Although it’s a small city, it’s very charming, lively and colorful.”
Here are a few of her favorite spots:
Ljubljana Central Market
”I can’t imagine anything more local than spending a beautiful Saturday morning at the central market place in Ljubljana. The lively open-air market has always been a place for the locals to meet and enjoy themselves together. Ljubljana Central Market is open daily (except Sundays) and it is possible to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables grown by local farmers. This is also a great place to observe townspeople and have a little chat with salesmen and saleswomen who have many years of experience and have heard many interesting stories from their customers.”

”This simple but nice outdoor gallery consists of three rectangular spaces that are usually filled up with clever and unique art pieces. The initiative came three years ago when an advertising company decided to offer their advertising space to local artists and their art work. Artists were given a free space and opportunity to create something exclusive, while they also started help to shape the speed of the street pulse of Vegova street with their art.”

Love Locks Butcher’s Bridge
”Every day more and more locks appear on it and if you also want to officially confirm your love, you can lock it in Ljubljana. Before throwing the keys into Ljubljanica river be sure your love is true – because it can’t be unlocked! Believe it or not – I locked a love lock with my boyfriend last year on this bridge as well! I dare you – can you find it?”
