The world has yet to discover Slovenian cuisine, but if you live here you will not be able to get enough of delicacies such as Idrijski zlikrofi or stews like “jota”, not to mentions the best sweets like the cake called Prekmurska gibanica. Making it all even better is a glass of Slovenia’s top notch wine. And the best part is that you can afford it. Eating out will not bankrupt you.

  • Complaining about everything

The favorite Slovenian past time is definitely complaining and pretty much nothing is off limits. It’s extremely addictive and you will be sucked in immediately. Even if you ever move, you will notice saying things like it’s too hot, it’s so depressing, this is way to expansive, why are they giving it for free…

Coffee in Ljubljana

  • Saturdays in Ljubljana

There is something quite magical about the capital of Slovenia. And Saturdays carry a special charm, as everything slows down and relaxes. The locals take a leisurely walk over to the main market to get fresh produce for their weekend meals, grab a cup of coffee with friends they haven’t seen during the week and enjoy all the commotion on the cobbled stoned streets and squares in the city center.
