Did you know?

The Central Market comprises an outdoor market (in Vodnik and Pogačar Square), a covered market between the said markets, and Plečnik's covered market by the Ljubljanica River. It is adorned with a statue of Valetin Vodnik, the author of the first cookbook in Slovenian.

Dishes included in the Ljubljana breakfast are seasonal and diverse. They may be modern or traditional, made the way our grandmothers made them. It is only important that the ingredients are from Ljubljana and its surroundings as part of the Green Supply Chains.

The famous food market Open Kitchen, where chefs from Slovenian restaurants make various dishes from countries around the world, takes place in Pogačar Square every Friday from mid-March to the end of October. The same place hosts an ecological market offering diverse ecological products on Saturdays.

The famous architect Jože Plečnik designed the covered market as a string of covered areas situated on two levels by the river. The section oriented towards the water is equipped with semi-circular windows, while the section oriented towards the road is embellished with two long rows of distinctive pillars.
