If you’re tired of walking throughout Ljubljana, Slovenia and need a relaxing evening, you can improve your English on the go – by watching a movie. As Slovenia is a small country, movies are not dubbed; they simply make use of subtitles. A good cinema, the Kolosej can be found in BTC in the eastern part of the city.
It is quite touristic, but if you want to try some traditional Slovenian dishes the Gostilna Sokol in Ljubljana, Slovenia is a good place. They’ve got international menus and have a good variety of national dishes. Check the Kranjska Klobasa (if you’re not a vegetarian).
The main square of Ljubljana, Slovenia (Prešernov trg) is in fact a circle. From there you can easily explore the main sights of Ljubljana.

The town’s landmark of Ljubljana, Slovenia is situated on Zmajski most – the Dragon bridge crossing Ljubljanica river.

I arrived in Ljubljana, Slovenia by night train. Much before sunrise a Croatian railway employee woke me up, supplied me with a plastic cup of coffee and shortly before 6 am I found myself standing in front of Ljubljana main station. This obscure situation gave me the possiblity to see Ljubljana in a way, most tourists don’t get to see.
Wolfsburg, Germany is a town in lower saxony founded officially as the Stadt des ‘Kraft durch Freude’-Wagens nahe Fallersleben for only one purpose: building cars.

The zoological garden of Frankfurt am Main, Germany has been opened in 1858 – and is therefore the second oldest zoo in Germany. It is definitely not the most modern and best zoo, but if you’re travelling with children it is always fun. Watching the sea lions in their new territory is great!
“The cup has its own rules”, we say when talking about the cup of the German football association (DFB-Pokal). In first round of 2014, my team had to play the Fussballverein Illertissen – an amateur team of the Regionalliga Bayern, located close to Ulm. As their own stadium was too small, they rented the Donaustadium, home to the SSV Ulm.
The Parkbühne (also called “Gilde Parkbühne” after its current sponsor, a local brewery) is just another concert location in Hannover, Germany. It is plain: a stage, toilets, beer vendors and a (green)field. In summertime and with the right bands it is great to stay here.
