Krizanke Summer Theatre (Poletno Gledalisce Krizanke) Tours

Krizanke Summer Theatre (Poletno Gledalisce Krizanke)
The mid-20th-century Slovene architect Jože Plečnik was responsible for much of Ljubljana’s rebirth as a cultured, elegant city; he built bridges over the Ljubljanica River as well as pathways along it and in the 1950s was also given the remit to design the Križanke Summer Theatre (Poletno Gledalisce Krizanke). It is located in the former Monastery of the Holy Cross, which dated right back to medieval times but was sacked by Yugoslav Communist leaders in the aftermath of World War II.

Plečnik set about creating a Renaissance-style entertainment venue with a vast entrance courtyard, paved with patterned cobbles and surrounded by arcaded walls etched with sgrafitto; his bust is also found here as a memorial to his designs, while some artifacts from the monastery are on display in a small museum next to the church. Today the complex offers four spaces, ranging from the Courtyard of Hell, where chamber-music concerts are held, to a sizeable stage where orchestral concerts and full-blown theater productions are held as well as rock concerts – it has a retractable roof in case of rain. The theater has a total capacity of 1,270 and is administrated by the Ljubljana Festival as the city’s most popular outdoor venue.

Practical Info

The theater is located at Trg francoske revolucije 1, and ticket prices vary by event.

You will see ancient monasteries put to alternative use, while discovering what Metelkova, Rog Factory, Jože Plečnik, Slavoj Žižek and Luka Dončić are all about.

Ljubljana Socialist Punk Music Walking Tour (small group)

Ljubljana Socialist Punk Music Walking Tour (small group)

star-5
Would you like to know more about the times when punk rockers were beaten up and imprisoned by the Communist authorities, on the one hand, and getting signed to state-controlled record labels, on the other? The 1970s and 1980s punk music from Slovenia was, and still is, amazing! It was very unique in the Communist East. And it's still very unique in the whole world! ‘Children of Socialism’, 'Via Ofenziva', ‘Ljubljana Dogs’, 'Ciao Bitches!', ‘Bastards’, ‘Berlin Wall’, and ‘Niet’ - these are just a few names of the bands that were turning an alternative music scene into an opposition movement. This walking tours takes you to the Johnny Rotten Square, Revolutions Squares (yes, a couple of them!), and other cult places. Also, you can count on listening to some legendary Slovenian/Yugoslav Communist Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave songs from a portable speaker.
