In Britain, the perfect combination for people is beer and football. So why don’t you have the best of both world by heading to Ljubljana for the Beer Festival Slovenia this month?
The popular festival will see over 30 breweries showcase their drinks, with attendees able to sample tipples from the likes of Carlsberg, Sarajevsko, Pan, Tuborg, Beck’s, Brooklyn Brewery, Leffe, Stella Artois, Fuller’s and Hoegaarden, among others.
And because the event runs between June 16th and 20th, you’ll be able to keep up with the latest World Cup action from South Africa on a large screen that will be erected within the BeerFest venue – the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre.
The festival is one of the largest of its kind in Middle Europe and will also include a host of live music and arts performances, as well as activities for the family.
In terms of Ljubljana hotels, there are a wide range of cheap and luxury options located close to the venue, so it should be easy to get to the festival each day.
The Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre is also well-located for accessing the rest of the city’s attractions – so if you fancy taking a break from the hard work of watching football and drinking beers around the world, you could head into the centre of Ljubljana for a spot of sightseeing.
Some of the most popular places to visit include the medieval castle situated in Ljubljana’s old centre, as well as the remains of the Roman city of Emona and the bridges that go over the Ljubljanica river.
Tivoli park is also worth a visit if you want to relax amid some greenery while out and about in Ljubljana, or you could stop at one of the city’s numerous museums to find out more about its 5,000-year history.
Once BeerFest is over – or perhaps before it begins – you could take a day trip out of the city.
Slovenia is home to some beautiful countryside, some of which lies close to Ljubljana.
You can see spectacular sights like Slovenia’s towering mountains and its picturesque coastline within a day’s journey from the capital.
