As we find ourselves in the heart of summer many locals will have relocated to the seaside for their summer break and different languages begin to fill the air. August’s high temperatures mean that you might struggle to find a seat at the riverside cafes, where you’ll see a refreshing Aperol Spritz on almost every table.
In between the scorching temperatures and random thunderstorms we’re experiencing this year, there’s a whole host of events to enjoy. The Ljubljana Festival is already in full swing and classical music concerts, opera, ballet and performing arts can be enjoyed almost daily at Kongresni Trg. Further afield, the Seviqc Brezice Festival is a must for those wanting to experience historically-inspired musical performances. If you need to take some time out from wiping the sweat from your brow then check out our Best Of Shopping winners and plan your route for some serious retail therapy.
And don’t forget the open kitchen every Friday, where you can sample the delights of many local restaurants who bring their mini-kitchens to the market square. The delicious aromas that fill the air are a great way to start the weekend.
