We all pray for good weather when we travel abroad, but if you are in Ljubljana and it is pouring rain, don’t worry; the CUBO team have got your back covered. Nothing is lost because in this blog we will give you 10 ideas on how to have fun, learn something new, or simply relax and enjoy


  1. Grab an umbrella and go see the main attractions

Well to start with, you can still see the major attractions of Ljubljana, especially taking into account that all of them are within 5- and 10-minutes walking distance from each other. Hotel CUBO has a perfect location in the city center, close to attractions, great restaurants, and cafes. Our staff has an umbrella prepared for you, so rain can’t ruin your exploration. We can imagine that pictures of the dragon bridge might look even more spooky on rainy and cloudy days.

  1. Treat yourself with a CUBO breakfast

Rainy weather can get us in a bad mood, so it is important to start your day well, and there is no better way than to start it with a CUBO breakfast. Amazing a la carte menu, warm coffee, a glass of orange juice and nice music in the background, do we need to say anything else? Maybe that our menu also includes some amazing American pancakes… Check and see why people say that we serve the best breakfast in Ljubljana.

  1. Explore museums and galleries

Ljubljana has many interesting museums and galleries in the city center, where you can enjoy the art, learn something new, or discover new artists. Our favorites are the National Gallery and the National Museum of Contemporary History.

  1. Shopping is always a solution

There are so many options when it comes to shopping in Slovenia’s capital. Right at the Prešern Square, there is a glorious Emporium Gallery, where you can buy various fashion items from world-famous designers such as Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, and more! If you are more into cute little shops, we recommend you take a walk along Mestni trg street, where you can shop for souvenirs and gifts for your friends and family in cute little stores. Finally, if you want some long, 5-hours shopping, then we recommend the BTC area, especially City Park, where you can find many different shops, have lunch, etc.

  1. Name a better duo than coffee and book

There are many bookstores in the city center, out of which the biggest is Mladinska knjiga, just 3 minutes away from the hotel CUBO, so you can easily buy a book and read it in the hotel lobby while drinking a cup of coffee. If you prefer to go somewhere outside, there are plenty of cool cafes alongside the Ljubljanica river, where you can relax and read.

  1. A sound mind in a sound body

Who told you that rainy days can’t be used for developing a good habit? For instance, you can start exercising in our CUBO fitness room. The treadmill running will undoubtedly give you some fresh energy and you will be productive the whole day, despite bad weather.

  1. Go to cinema

The best-known cinemas in Ljubljana are Kolosej, modern cinema in BTC, and Komuna, a cinema in the center, just 4 minutes away from the hotel CUBO. Both of them show international and regional movies with Slovenian subtitles, so you might even learn some Slovenian phrases while watching the movie.  The cinema with the longest tradition in Ljubljana is Kinodvor, which had its first movie screening in 1923. Nowadays, they are projecting movies from all around the world, so you might even find one made in your home country.

  1. Visit local brewery

Union brewery is definitely something Slovenians are proud of, so don’t miss a chance to visit it and try some local drinks and enjoy good live music. Of course, we have to mention that there are some crazy good snacks offered, so you definitely won’t stay hungry.

  1. Try something fun

When was the last time you and your partner or group of friends had a bowling night? Well, the Whoop arena is a great place for fun activities like laser tag and bowling. You can easily book one of the various fun activities on their website.

  1. Practice golf

Although the CUBO golf course is a breath-taking place in sunny weather, you can still visit it on rainy days. You can use the fact that it is less crowded than usual and practice your long-distance shots. Often on rainy days there are some great deals, so make sure you check the CUBO golf Facebook page to make sure not to miss them.

Finally, if you simply can’t stand the rain, our rooms are pretty spacious and well-equipped, so you can just stay in, order room service, and start a Netflix movie marathon. We live fast-paced lives, and sometimes it is necessary to stop and get a rest. If you want to enhance your experience, our receptions can recommend great masseuse and wellness centers. All in all, we are sure that you will have a great time in Ljubljana, as your CUBO team will do everything that’s in our power to make your stay memorable.
