The marketplace is the beating heart of a city and its people. It is where they celebrate their traditions, rituals and share their secrets. We went to discover Slovenia at the Open Kitchen Market in Ljubljana.

Common sense says that all good wine is hidden in small bottles. It could be for this reason that Ljubljana, one of the smallest capitals in Europe, would be also one of the most welcoming cities on our continent. 89% of residents affirm that they regard the presence of foreigners in the city as positive. So, where do visitors and residents meet each other? Every Friday from March to October, they are likely to find each other sitting on the stairs at the Open Kitchen Market (Odprta Kuhna in Slovenian — Ed.), trying one of the 50 dishes from the most remote corners of the planet. You have to see it to believe it.
