ARTish in Ljubljana: Festival of Creativity & Exhibition of Arts and Crafts

LJUBLJANA is indeed a people-friendly city, as its inhabitants and numerous visitors will tell you. In Ljubljana the old meets the new. It is a city of numerous theatres, museums and galleries, and boasts one of the oldest philharmonic orchestras in the world. The inhabitants of Ljubljana and its visitors can admire artists from many different fields – from music, theatre and fine arts to the alternative and avant-garde. In warmer months, the tables and chairs of the numerous cafés fill the banks of the Ljubljanica and the old city markets. It is here, after an almost obligatory Saturday visit to the Ljubljana market or the Sunday flea market or other events, that the locals meet for a morning coffee or for an evening chat with friends.
