Light at the End of the Tunnel: The Ultimate Staycation Guide to the Most Beautiful City in the World
Word from the editor
While we still fully expect the dragons of Zmajski Most to come alive and rain fire on Ljubljana, 2020 seems to be straightening out a little as autumn approaches. Famous last words, right? International voices and optimism have returned to the
streets of the capital, with a plethora of events and celebrations on the fall calendar. And if 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, Laibach is playing at the castle on September 12. What a world, what a world.
Life in Ljubljana is strolling on, one eye on world events and one eye on the future, in that inimitable Slovenian sort of way. Restaurants are serving world-class food, museums and galleries are offering a veritable buffet of culture and the bars and cafes of the city are seeing their terraces fill up, just in time for the fluctuating weather of the Slovenian autumn. Hey, we never said it was going to be easy. That’s just the thing; it is easy. Ljubljana is an easy city to love, no matter the state of play with the Gods. Good weather? Plonk that botty by the Ljubljanica and sample all the craft beers the city has to offer. Bad weather? Museums, galleries and more on every corner (not literally, but you get the point). We’ll be here, still scratching our heads at the idea of Laibach at the Castle.
