One of the first things I do once I know my new destination is to check out the street art culture of that place, and I was extremely happy to read that Ljubljana has a quite amazing culture when it comes to street art. One of the places that is very popular with street art is the autonomous social center, Metelkova which is right in the city center.
if you visited Christiania in Copenhagen, then Metelkova will for sure remind you of it, if you did not visit Chrisiania and you like Metelkova, you should definitely book your trip to Denmark :)
The place was first opened in 1993."The real change happened when Slovenia gained independence in 1991" explains Janez Premk, a local art historian. â(Source)
It looks that there are some separated areas with focus on different things.
some of the highlights
a funny moment happened when in the deep silence my friend who was checking the area of the patterns seems to have activated a sensor and some drums started moving, creating a sound
checking the area more in details, here some closer look on the patterns
no matter how I look at this, I keep fining it disturbing

We know what you did last summer :)
Hope you enjoyed and will consider visiting. btw...the categories are not official, is to make it easier to view the different parts of the place.
