Metelkova Mesto, Ljubljana

Metelkova Ulica
Tel: 386 1 432 3378's insider take:

Constantly under threat of closure by the government, this anarchic squat in the former Yugoslav army barracks takes its inspiration from Christiana, the infamous self-governing "freetown" in Copenhagen. It's an "autonomous cultural zone" where various artists, musicians, and other fringe-culture types have attempted to create their own city. Among the various offerings are Tiffany, the city's first gay club (open irregularly so call ahead); the Monokel lesbian club; plus punk, electronica, and jazz clubs.
