Best Nightlife in Ljubljana 2018

Colourful trees, foggy mornings, chilly evenings, yes, it’s definitely that time of year again – the time of year when we ask all of Ljubljana’s party people, beer drinkers, students, hipsters, wine connoisseurs, concertgoers, pool sharks, clubbers, jazzophiles, cigar aficionados and night owls what their favourite after-dark destinations are, as it’s time for our 8th annual Best Nightlife competition!

As in years past, our expert editorial team (several members of which may or may not have a drinking problem) has narrowed down the countless choices to shortlists of ten finalists in each of our nine categories, and now we turn things over to our dear readers to decide which venues are the most popular in town. Voting is open until midnight on 15 November, with one vote permitted per computer or device per week*, and the final results will be published in the upcoming December issue of our Ljubljana In Your Pocket guide. Thanks in advance to all the voters, our apologies for all the captchas, best of luck to all of the contenders and na zdravje to everyone!

Having a stag party in Slovenia

In the last few years the tourism in Slovenia has developed a lot, which reflects in more frequent inquiries from foreign tourists. Especially in the last two years the number of groups that come with only one purpose in mind – to celebrate a stag party – has increased exponentially. The summer months are the most saturated with foreign and home stag groups, which are usually seen in the city centre, wearing the same uniforms and taking part in different, entertaining activities.

What are the most popular and interesting activities for such groups in Slovenia, aside from those that take place in Ljubljana?

Cave kayaking
Kayaking through an abandoned mine, which leads to a beautiful underground lake.

White Water Rafting
Travelling through the wilderness of untouched nature that you can observe while paddling the rapids of the most beautiful Slovenian rivers.

Moving along on the river gorges, jumping down small waterfalls, and ending up in beautiful pools.

A mixture of water skiing, surfing and snowboarding, with a rush of adrenaline.

A breathtaking ride by wire through Učja canyon, giving views which are otherwise known only by the birds. You can see the Beautiful Bovec Green River Valley, cliffs, canyons, a view of the highest mountain, Triglav, a experience for everyone

Bled Experience
A visit to Bled is also an unforgettable experience, as this is one of the most beautiful alpine resorts, surrounded by picturesque mountains. From Bled Castle one can see majestic mountains arranged around a small island with a church, which sits in the middle of the lake.

Slovenia’s smallness is also its strength, because it enables transitions from mountains to the sea in less than two hours. Most people find this feature very fascinating, because they rarely have the opportunity to first slide along the natural slides of a river canyon, and soon after be racing down wire over one of the most beautiful valleys in the country.
