Shopping in Ljubljana is fun and a great way to experience the
city. Shoppers can browse the myriad of quaint shops along the
cobblestoned alleys or peruse markets and larger shopping centres.
BTC City is perhaps the largest shopping area in Ljubljana.
Visitors to the BTC City area can choose from close to 500 shops
while there are also casinos, sports facilities and arcade areas in
the centre. Emporium at BTC City is the place to be seen and
shoppers can choose from any number of labels such as Giorgio
Armani, Hugo, Gucci and Jean Paul Gaultier. Muller Department Store
is another great shopping option. For those wanting a more
traditional shopping experience head to the Idrija Lace Gallery for
some of the intricate and beautiful hand-made lace from the Idrijan
region. The Central Market and the Antique and Flea markets are the
best places to shop for souvenirs. The Central Market stocks
handicrafts, souvenirs, art, flowers and food products; while the
Antique Market is a great place to find hidden treasures as well as
old books, hand-made jewellery, communist-era memorabilia and old
postcards. While the Central Market is open during the week, the
Antiques Market is only open on Sundays until 2pm.
