The smallest and safest capital city of Europe on the crossing of Roman, German and Slavic culture
yet big enough for everyone to find a place for themselves. It has everything 'big cities' have –
it’s a city of culture, art, tourism, congress activity and entertainment.
Especially in summer, there is a plenty of culture events: Summer culture festival,
Trnfest, Street events all over Ljubljana. Many of them free, dedicated to children and adults.
And Ljubljana is a bit less crowdy than other Europe's capitals or big cityes like Vienna, Salzburg,
Rome, Paris, Berlin, Munich.
Ljubljana is expecting you.
The nightly cultural festival is the one of the summer events in Ljubljana, traditionally in
KUD France Prešeren in Trnovo (France Prešeren is the most important Slovene poet).
Trnfest runs all throughout August, with the opening taking place the last two days of July,
and the grand-finale bash scheduled for the first evening in September. In the 5 weeks of the
festival, one can experience a multitude of eclectic happenings for all ages and tastes, from
wild gypsy-ethno concerts to ambiantal acid-jazz accompanied visual-art shows, improvisational
"theater sports", art exhibits (3 shows dedicated to football (soccer), DJ'ed parties as well
as dance performances. Of course, for those of you who prefer to participate in the creative
process rather than merely observe, there are also weekly workshops in African dance, the
ABC's of acting, Batik painting on clothes, in addition to the traditional Thursday
afternoon children's creative workshops.
