APRIL1550 is located on a quiet cobbled street at the edge of Ljubljana's Old Town, just beneath Ljubljana's Castle Hill, behind St. Jacob's Church, and a few steps away from the chandelier-adorned piazza of St. Florian's Church.
Take a stroll along the river or go for a morning jog towards Ljubljana Castle. We are located a few steps from the banks of the Ljubljanica River and just beneath Castle Hill.
One of the lesser-known creations of Slovenia's most famous architect Jože Plečnik are the stairs of St. Florian's Church. Grab a drink from our bar and enjoy the summer night on the church stairs.
If you are impressed with Plečnik's work, take a stroll and visit the Plečnik House, the architect's home, a house in Trnovo, a monument of national importance since 2009, and today a public museum
Rent a bike and follow the river eastwards to reach Cukrarna, Ljubljana's newest gallery space, and continue the journey even further east to reach MAO - The Museum of Architecture and Design, located in a 16th century castle on the edge of Ljubljana's largest and best socialist architecture neighborhood.
The Central Market is still the best place to shop for seasonal produce. Saturdays are particularly bustling. It seems like the whole city is shopping for food and flowers and drinking coffee and wine under a colonnade designed by Plečnik.
Ljubljana is the national capital of culture. Fantastic festivals, concerts, and shows are staged here throughout the year. Ask the staff for an insider's guide to the best events in town.
