Ljubljana’s festive atmosphere - no matter what the weather

Vibrant Ljubljana excites visitors from all over the world, but most especially during Merry December, when the city turns into a true winter wonderland. The New Year’s lighting of the historical city centre warm up even the coldest days, and the delicious aroma of mulled wine wafts through the cobblestone streets.

Ljubljana’s festive atmosphere - no matter what the weather

Vibrant Ljubljana excites visitors from all over the world, but most especially during December, when the city turns into a true winter wonderland. The New Year’s lighting of the historical city centre warm up even the coldest days, and the delicious aroma of mulled wine wafts through the cobblestone streets. Enjoy the numerous open-air concerts, and find the perfect gift at the Festive Fair. Even in bad weather, Ljubljana has fun for the whole family. The most beautiful experience on New Year’s Eve is standing underneath the castle to take in the spectacular fireworks.

Ljubljana promises an exciting program on New Year’s Eve, with events at all the squares in the city. Prešeren Square invites all those looking for a party to come downtown in the capital. Novi trg will be cutting a real rug that evening, as the most energetic bands will be taking the stage. Meanwhile Town Square trg will cater to a little more mature audience with a milder taste in music. Pogačar Square will be perfect for lovers of polka, while French revolution Square will have the right music for the alternative listeners.

The Slovenian capital is becoming more and more popular as a tourist destination, and the range of goods and services it offers to visitors is expanding in turn – so rest assured! Even if the weather turns out bad, Ljubljana still has fun for the whole family.

Visit the first Escape Room in Ljubljana, where fun is an absolute promise – you have to escape a locked room, just like in an Agatha Christie novel. All in one hour! Think you can unravel puzzles and riddles, decipher codes, find all the hidden clues, and unlock the door to find your way to freedom? Test out your master sleuth skills and enjoy a truly unforgettable experience.

Dive into the world of science too, at the House of Experiments, on one of the oldest streets in the city, named after the author of the first book published in Slovenian, Primož Trubar. Those driven by curiosity will find a safe environment to conduct their experiments on the objects exhibited, and visitors of all ages will enjoy the experience. Who knows, you might find that one of your family members is a future Nobel laureate!

Pay a visit to one of the fascinating museums and galleries, catch a great movie, or roll a few frames of bowling. When you need to rest or grab a bite to eat, feel free to relax in one of the restaurants and cafes with the diverse menus and friendly waiters which befit a capital city.
