Slovenia Ljubljana


Tips from the community

When: February 1, 2022 to February 28, 2022 Slovenia is a country that loves festivals, and their winter carnival, which welcomes in the spring, is a larger-than-life mix of pagan and Christian traditions that have to be experienced. The Ljubljana Dragon Carnival is held in the central square in Maribor and is a wash of color, fun, and so many masks. You’ll see most of the city getting into the spirit of things by dressing up in costumes of bears, fairies, witches, and devils in an attempt to scare off the winter months and welcome in the warmer weather. You may be wondering where the dragon comes into all of this, and you won’t miss him since the big, green beast leads the parade and the creatures behind him. You can also head to other parts of Slovenia to catch some of the other masked winter festivals that happen around the same time.

Some of the iconic staples of the Ljubljana skyline have been designated as World Heritage Sites. These sites designed by Jože Plečnik, including the Triple Bridge, Congress Square, and Žale Cemetery represented urban design that serves the people, a concept that intersects modernist ideas with more traditional Slovenian culture.
