Address: Slomškova 18, 1000 Ljubljana
The Ljubljana city power station, a magnificent technical monument is one of the rare examples of industrial architecture, which is preserved in Slovenia. It has gone through numerous changes since 1898, when its construction began. It was modernized, upgraded and enlarged until the end of World War II, when the power station with its then obsolete technology, was replaced by a heating plant on the outskirts of the city. The Old Power Station is now buzzing with activities: several groups use it as their rehearsal venue; it is also a place for different workshops, which range from cultural management to dance techniques, while in the evening, the power station is frequently a venue for various performances and other multimedia events.

Address: Metelkova city, Masarykova cesta 24, 1000 Ljubljana
Metelkova is an internationally-renowned alternative culture
community in the centre of Ljubljana. A self-declared 'Autonomous
Culture Zone, Metelkova Mesto occupies the former 'Fourth of July'
military barracks originally commissioned by the Austro-Hungarian army
back in 1882 and completed in 1911. Formerly belonging to the Yugoslav
National Army, the barracks were abandoned after the withdrawal of the
military and the declaration of Slovene independence in 1991. In 1993,
a group of artists and activists became squatters in Metelkova City,
the three acres that make up the northern part of the zone, gradually
transforming the barracks into an important cultural and political
site. The space consists of seven buildings and 12,500m2 - making it a
sort of city within a city - comprising a former prison (now Celica
Hostel), several clubs, live music spaces, art galleries and artist
studios. Dedicated to organizing social and cultural activities for the
public, Metelkova has a nonstop events schedule and is arguably the
best after-dark destination in Ljubljana for those looking to
experience something wholly unique and unpredictable.
