Ljubljana is truly magical during the Summer. The city is full of tourists, vibrant energy and cool events. A lot of interesting festivals happen outdoors so you can enjoy great music and entertainment under the sun and stars. In Slovenia we just love socialising with great music and dancing, delicious food and ice cold drinks.
