Sax Pub Mural – Botched or rejuvenated?

The "Sax Pub Mural" in Ljubljana was recently 'restored', and the new work by artist Matthieu Tremblin begs the question - whose mural is it now?

Corner Stones – Inhabitants of medieval Laibach

It was YEARS before I knew what these "corner stones" from medieval Ljubljana - or I should say, these odd little people staring at me - were all about...

Northern City Park – Yo ho ho and a bust or a few!

"Northern City Park" in Ljubljana is a great choice when it comes to going for walk - I love the busts of important authors & the sea-themed playground!

"Linda Bistro" in Ljubljana and its menu swept me off my feet. It not only fed me like a queen but also made my day. Join me under the linden trees!

Stolpersteine – Jewish history paved in stone

Did you know that Ljubljana has its own "Stolpersteine", or 'stumbling blocks' that commemorate the city's oft-forgotten Jewish holocaust victims?

K–House – And life became art

"K–House" in Ljubljana is an award-winning apartment building made to look like a gallery, especially as you can look inside! A bit stalkerish, but OK!

About me

About me
Lively, chatty, and most of all, always on the lookout for something fresh and fun to shake up my everyday routine. Art historian by education, culture lover by heart, and last but not least, very OCD when it comes to matching colors and patterns (so don't wear different socks in front of me – unless you want to give me a headache).

I love to mix up tradition and give it some alternative spunk, so don't get shocked if you find me at a classical concert at Cankarjev dom one evening and headbanging at the front row at Gromka the next. I will cover everything from theatre/performance festivals to different art workshops and also give you a few hints about where to buy those MTG collectible cards or your future fav graphic novel. Let's say I rock that art geek-chic vibe hard and I will not let you down. OH and don't be afraid (!) to holler at me if you ever see me skateboarding or cycling past you in my girlie floral dress – I love meeting new people and hearing about their passions and anecdotes.

Why Ljubljana
Ljubljana might be pocket-sized but believe me – it withholds more than you can imagine! Its beautiful combo of art deco, baroque and modern architecture alone is so breathtaking that simple things like running around doing errands becomes a visual adventure. And even more – a treasure hunt!

You might find yourself gazing through big windows of Kresija Gallery when you just wanted to treat yourself with some Cockta (Slovenian version of Coke) at closeby Pritličje bar. Or you might stop to see some street art performances done by Ana Desetnica festival on your way to snatch that last BicikeLJ (rentable bike).

It's like the city is screaming "SURPRISE" at every step you take, if only you take the time to notice it. So don't get fooled by it being so petit. After all, we do have a saying in Slovenia "strup je v majhnih stekleničkah" (the poison comes in small flasks), which doesn't fail to remind us that the smallest things can at times hide their grandeur. And in that aspect, Ljubljana couldn't be more on point!
