In Ljubljana we will stay at my sweet friend Elena’s, who was my roommate during my first year in Slovenia. If you need somewhere to spend the night in Ljubljana, I would  recommend the Celica Hostel, which is inside the Metelkova Mesto! Best place ever!!
Day 3: all day in Lj
(no need to plan anything, I just want to walk around, catch up with old friends, eat pizza burek at the kiosk in front of the train station, drink a glass of Slovenian wine along the river and spend the evening at Rog and at Metelkova Mesto)
