Storming Metelkova

One of the highlights of the week that just flew by was definitely our Monday visit to Metelkova. We actually went to see the launch of a website on Metelkova that a group of American students have produced as a part of their media production course but you should have seen the look on our nanny’s face when we told her that “her” Tamara was at Metelkova the day before.

For the uninitiated, former army barracks of Metelkova are the urban alternative culture/art/activism/place in Ljubljana that has over the years acquired a somewhat demonised public image. Probably, what she had in mind was something demon-like as the wall art piece above. Or even more nightmarish as this reflection of the same art piece in the window of Ministry of Culture.

The place is actually the opposite, a laid back alternative where one could really enjoy a slow afternoon drink or two. Especially if one would be there without the little storm trooper :) 

Anyway, to learn more about Metelkova in English visit: http://metelkova.goucher.edu/
