History, culture and tradition coexist perfectly in beautiful Ljubljana. If you are on holiday in these parts, however, do not forget to take a trip to one of its markets.
Not simply places of commerce, but real social points of reference, with many people who flock to this area just to meet.
The two most famous markets of Ljubljana are located between the splendid Cathedral and the riverside.
So similar, and so different in style and proposal, they can be considered a whole.
Absolutely not to be missed on holiday in Ljubljana.

The most famous markets of Ljubljana is housed in the central Pogačar Square.
It is a beautiful, quiet and colorful market, with a rather varied offer. Mainly Slovenian fruit and vegetables, meats, fish, flowers. Prices slightly higher than average, but quality in abundance, with the possibility of tasting different delicacies.
The offer is completed with the presence of stalls displaying clothes, local creative crafts, and more.
The market, during the week, hosts numerous thematic and culinary events. These include Podeželje v mestu, the organic market on Wednesdays and “Odprta kuhna” on Fridays from May to October.
The market is open, in summer, from Monday to Friday from 6am to 6pm. Saturdays from 6am to 4pm. In winter, from Monday to Saturday, from 6am to 4pm. Always closed on Sundays and public holidays.
Ljubljana is well served by the road network and is easily accessible by car. Traffic has to be taken into account, especially at peak times.
If you have not opted for a hotel with parking, in the city you can find space on the strips, at a cost of €0.70 per hour. On Saturdays and Sundays it is generally free.
