Thanks all! Yup, very lovely city... the countryside is arguably even better

A couple of nice churches fairly near my apartment (great place to stay btw, if anyone was going to visit; look up 'sweethome', the owner Matej is awesome)

On my last half-day I went to the cafe at the top of Nebotičnik for brunch

Nebotičnik means 'skyscraper' and although this 13 storey building may not seem very tall to readers of this forum in 2014, when the building opened on 21 February 1933 it was the tallest building in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and the ninth-tallest high-rise in Europe. It was also, and would remain for some time, the tallest residential building in Europe (from Wikipedia)

Here is the building from the ground level. Designed by Slovenian architect Vladimir Šubic, I think it's quite lovely.

And here are the very fine views from the cafe terrace, which wraps around all 360 degrees of the building.

After that I didn't have much time before catching my bus to the airport, so I just explored the streets nearby, without knowing what anything was really. seemed to be some a district with many government buildings as far as I could work out

I like the colours of the buildings in these parts of Europe. In my country, nobody would even consider painting a church orange or pink

Now for a totally different side of the city...

One of the things I first noticed as I set off from the apartment to the town centre, was the proliferation of graffiti/street art in the local area. It may be a divisive subject ("vandalism" vs "art", etc), but suffice to say I personally enjoy some it, so I took a bunch of photos of it.

To start with, some stuff from the vicinity of the apartment

I'd heard about the Metelkova district, a sort of squat / commune / cultural centre likened by guidebooks to Freetown Christiana. Apparently it had a bunch of cool decoration and stuff, as well as tons of nightlife, so I went to have a look.

It took quite a long time to get there, though because I kept spotting more pieces along the way.

At this point I reached Trubarjeva cesta, and I knew I was surely on the right street for Metelkova as the entire thing was one, very long, uninterrupted graf montage:

Phew! After finally reaching the end of Trubarjeva cesta, I still had a few more streets worth of general spotting before I found Metelkova

Finally at Metelkova, and it is certainly an extravagant sight

The buildings are not just painted/graffiti'd but variously covered with tile/mosaic, carvings, random objects, homemade sculptural metalwork and so on - my initial thought was "Mad Max"

Needless to say, the surrounding walls of the quarter (an ex-army barracks) were one big canvas
