Ljubljana received its first snowfall of the season just days before we sent this guide to print (20 Nov if you were curious), and although the inaugural white stuff didn't stick around very long, it's forecast to be a blustery, cold winter this year, so we've gone ahead and included a special Joys of Winter feature in the December-February issue of the guide for anyone wishing to take advantage of Slovenia's many fine ski resorts and thermal spas.
In Ljubljana you don't have to venture far to find signs of the holidays, as for the entire month of December the old town and most of the city centre will be aglow with millions of tiny twinkling lights, and the cobbled pedestrian streets packed with revellers of all ages and nationalities - snapping photos, sipping mulled wine and generally making merry. Indeed, even the most Grinch-like visitors (and residents) will find it hard to keep their heart from growing at least three sizes whilst visiting.
Of course there's more to Ljubljana than its Festive December, and our new issue the guide goes all the way till the end of February, we've made sure to pack the Culture & Events pages with even more great festivals, exhibitions, concerts, performances and other happenings than usual, while those looking for a little nighttime fun will definitely want to check the results of our 2019 Best Nightlife competition. As always we welcome any and all feedback from our readers, be it on Facebook, Instagram, old-fashioned email or written in the snow in Zvezda Park across the street from our offices.
A free PDF download of our latest guide to Ljubljana can be found here, and with over 400 distribution points in the city (and surrounding area) you’re never far from a print copy.
