Best of Ljubljana - Central Market


Many people would argue that no single place in Ljubljana encapsulates the heart and soul of the Slovenian people more than Prešeren Square. However, with all due respect to the famed tragic poet and the indisputably lovely square that bears his name just across the Ljubljanica river, for our proverbial money this distinction can only go to Central Market, which is the most direct connection between the vibrant rural areas that cover most of Slovenia and the more urban and cosmopolitan capital city.

Spotlight on our Partners

As the name suggests, Namaste Indian Express is the stripped-down offspring of its parent restaurant, Namaste, which was the very first to bring cuisine from the subcontinent to Slovenia all the way back in 2003. Located just around the corner from the famed Dragon Bridge, the Express branch offers a wide variety of inexpensive wraps and other filled-bread options, such as romali roti, dosai, uttapam, tawa paratha and samosa, all of which are tasty and many of which are also vegetarian-friendly.

Trending Global City

A most peculiar, most charming, most elegant, and most approachable of European cities, Palermo is criminally underrated when it comes to Europe’s must see destinations. Sure, you don’t come here to ogle at Leonardo Da Vinci paintings, but is that really what you’re deep down after when you roll into a new town? If the answer to that question is, no, then we’ve got a great feeling that you’re going to love the eclectic mixture of color and flavours that Palermo offers the curious traveller.
