Continuing on my Eurail journey, I leave Bucharest to head to Ljubljana, Slovenia. First stop on the way is Budapest, Hungary, a good 10 hours down the track. Before you send your angry message to me wondering why I am not spending more time in Budapest, I assure you I love Budapest and have visited a couple times already. On this trip I hope to mainly visit new places and see new things.

There ended up not being another train to Ljubljana that day so I spent the night near the station. The next day they told me that the track to Ljubljana is under construction, and I had to make a big detour. The whole day was spent on one train or another, with stops in Vienna and Villach and finally Ljubljana.

The hostel I’m staying at is one of the coolest I’ve ever seen. It’s Hostel Celica, and its built out of an old prison inside a military base from the Cold War. Its awesome. Each room is a cell that has been designed by a different artist and unique from each other. The hostel is just in the prison section, but the rest of the old base is quite awesome too.

Most of the buildings are some sort of free squats, converted into little bars or art galleries and what not. Its pretty sweet, and the entire complex is covered in street art. Some people were even calling it “Covered City”. This post is about street art in Ljubljana, and it has some great stuff, but most feature here is from this cool old military base.

  1. […] Главниот град на Словенија, Љубљана, се смета за една од повозбудливите средишта на уличната уметност во централна и источна Европа. Графитите не се сметаат за нагрдување на јавниот простор, туку напротив – за начин како тој да се облагороди. Затоа, градските власти најчесто имаат добар однос кон уличните уметници и им дозволуваат да го искажат својот талент. Еве дел од графитите во словенечката престолнина, забележани од член на веб-страницата Truenomads.com. […]

    • honestly most of it is in “covered city”. The old military prison. Ask anyone where that is, they will know.
