The Slovenia Times

Thousands to welcome New Year outdoors


In the capital Ljubljana revellers will have a choice of four concert venues, with music ranging from accordion oompah in Pogačar Square to urban contemporary music in French Revolution Square and a selection of pop and rock at the biggest venue in Congress Square.

The traditional fireworks will be lit over Ljubljana Castle at midnight. Interestingly, Ljubljana will be among a handful of cities with fireworks, as many communities opted to shun the expense due to empty municipal coffers.

The main event in the country's second largest city Maribor will be held in Leon Štukelj Square. Outdoor parties are also planned in cities such as Celje, Koper, Kranj, Slovenj Gradec, Murska Sobota, Ptuj, Velenje, Nova Gorica and Novo mesto.
