Ljubljana Drama Café: Afternoon tea, evening prosecco
You can find the 1919 Ljubljana Drama green building not far from Cankarjev dom or Ljubljana Congress Square in the city center. The cafe is located on the first floor in a former foyer, reachable by a winding staircase. But the climb is definitely worth it, because it’s where the whole new world opens.
Drama Ljubljana is the central drama theatre in Slovenia
Drama Ljubljana has the largest, most recognizable and respected ensemble. Its repertory includes classical, contemporary and experimental theatre productions.
Drama Café on its floor (as already mentioned) is much more than a meeting place. It is a wonderful venue for literary and music events. Most of all, the cozy atmosphere just embaces you. Furthermore, its terrace is overlooking the Ljubljana Castle, ant it’s a really lovely view.
A perfect setting
Among the various tables and armchairs, adorned with numerous candlesticks and lamps, an old record player stands, together with a rich collection of records.
The cafe boasts a collection of statues of the first Slovenian actresses and actors. Among them are at least three women – Augusta Danilova (1869 – 1958), Maria Vera (1881 – 1954) and Vida Juvan (1905 – 1998). They all gained their first theater experience across Europe and only later entered the stage of the Ljubljana Drama.
Images from the distant past and photographs from contemporary performances testify the rich activity of the largest Slovenian theater.
