We recommend a walk through the Congress Square, where the Magical Forest is on display this year, and the hall, which is chilled to 4 degrees below zero, presents the Ice Land. Different sculptures, a children's ice slide and an ice bar were carved out of 80 tons of ice. You can continue to the Ljubljanica embankment, where various stalls, mostly with handicraft products, are set up.

On the Congress Square, children will celebrate the arrival of the new year at 16:00. With fairy tale characters, they will see the musical performances of the children and rejoice in the arrival of Santa Claus.

The New Year's Eve in Ljubljana will be colorful and at midnight a firework from the castle will illuminate the sky above the city. The main stage at the Congress Square will be performed by: Kingston and Luka Basi, the City Square will feature Spicikuc Orchestra, Neisha, the Pogacar Square ensemble Ceglar, Fredi Miller and Come Back Band and the French Revolution Square - Omega Sun, Alo !, the Old Man, Srd and Niet.
