Lesbian Ljubljana – Our Taste for Life

Lesbian Ljubljana - Our Taste for Life

Slovenia is a magical country in Eastern Europe. And while it may be smaller than most cities, it certainly doesn’t lack in adventure or beauty. We knew very little about the country before our recent visit. In particular, Gay Slovenia and what it would be like to travel there as a lesbian couple. We imagined this part of Europe to be quite conservative. But as it turns out, Slovenia has an accepting and progressive culture. Gay Ljubljana especially has an almost thriving LGBT+ scene, and the country as a whole has a lot to offer gay travellers.

We travelled via coach from Budapest to Ljubljana, so were fortunate enough to take the scenic route into the capital. Towering snow-capped mountains hugging rolling green hills dominated the landscapes. Only to be occasionally interrupted by quaint villages resembling something out of a fairy tale. Slovenia was flaunting herself at us, and it worked. We were head over heels in love before we’d even left the coach.

Our love affair with Slovenia continued into Ljubljana and beyond. The capital is enchanting, bursting with beautiful architecture, art, culture, and charm. While the rest of the country boasts some of the most captivating nature we’ve ever laid our eyes on. When we also consider Slovenia’s gay-friendly attitude, it’s a place we will return to time and time again.

In this travel guide, we cover what Gay Slovenia and Gay Ljubljana have to offer LGBT+ travellers. We will list the best Ljubljana gay bars, cafes and nightclubs; gay-friendly hotels and hostels; LGBT+ events; as well as all the top things to do. We will also touch on LGBT+ rights in Slovenia, so you are fully prepared.

The road to equal LGBT+ rights in Slovenia has been, and still is to an extent, a turbulent one. While same-sex sexual activity has been legal since 1976, same-sex couples were neglected the same marital rights as straight couples until 2017. Before that, the government recognised ‘registered partnerships’; however, this included little inheritance, social security or next-of-kin rights.

Slovenia has blown us away! You have to add it to your gay travel list straight away!

We arrived in Slovenia as part of Pink Week. This was a 4 day tour of Slovenia in a gay friendly environment organised by gay owned travel company Luxury Slovenia and supported by the tourism board.

Slovenia is perhaps one of the most beautiful, scenic and green countries we have ever visited. Whilst most people will have heard about its neighbours, Austria, Italy and Croatia, we felt that Slovenia was less well known and deserves more attention!

Not only that, but as a gay couple, we felt very welcome and safe in Slovenia. We barely gave being a gay couple here a second thought; and that is a good thing!

In fact, it is stated on the tourism boards website: ‘’Slovenia, especially Ljubljana, is friendly and open to all visitors. As guests who are members of the gay and lesbian community, you are welcome here. All the services provided by Slovenia to its guests are also available to you.’’

So let’s see what gay Slovenia and its capital city, gay Ljubljana, has to offer!

What do you know about Slovenia? If your only answer is ‘Isn’t that where Melania Trump was born?’ then it’s time to pay this stunning land a visit. Indeed, it may be one of Europe’s smallest countries, with a pint-sized population of 2.06 million and an area mass 20,273 km². (To put that into perspective, Germany has an area mass of 357,376 km2 and a population of 82.67 million). But Slovenia boasts a range of touristic credentials akin to countries that are far, far bigger.

It has the mountainous natural beauty of Austria and Switzerland, and a short stretch of pristine coast to rival Italy and Croatia. Meanwhile the capital, Ljubljana, is as clean, functional and cultural as any in Scandinavia. Best of all, you can enjoy the best of all three without being stuck in cars and coaches for hours on end. Here’s our guide to making the most of this immensely LGBTI-friendly country – which legalized homosexuality in 1977 and introduced civil unions in 2006 – in a long weekend.

Lake Bled

Lake Bled, in the medieval town of Bled, is probably Slovenia at its most iconic. A 30-minute drive from Ljubljana International Airport and 47 minutes from the city proper is a scene so idyllic, it could have inspired fairytales. In the center of the lake and surrounded by greenish-blue water stands a small island, home to the 17th century Church of Mary the Queen. (Also known as the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary.)
