What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

Sports, shopping, going to the concert, going to cafes and restaurants. - Jul 2014


The movie selection here is horrible! The same movies pass for months in a row! And there are usually only blockbusters. There are a lot of concerts of good quality and the Slovene Philharmonic is very good! A lot of international artists pass through Slovenia too. The streets in the center are very lively at night and there are a few clubs: the best one is the " Top Club"! The culture of "cafés" is very strong in Ljubljana and people love to eat ice-cream ("Sladoled!"). There is also the Tivoli Park whit swimming pools, forest and nice green area to enjoy the sun! - Aug 2011


The social life can be frustrating for singles. The families with small children tend to stick together and there don't seem to be many singles, so it can be quite lonely. Slovenes are friendly, but it is hard to get to know them and become friends with them, even if you speak the language. They are like Slavic-speaking Austrians in that respect. Be prepared to spend a lot of time by yourself if you do not come with a family. - Jun 2011


You can visit a few bars along the river in the centre (gets boring though). There are some good concerts on every week. - Mar 2011
