Ljubljana and me

Glimpses,photos & experiences of a foreigner living in Slovenia, Ljubljana

Market,Slovenians and flowers

P1060926aa What about a walk to the Central Market? “Osrednja ljubljanska tržnica” is located in Vodnik Square , not more then a 2 minutes easy walk from the Central Square. It offers you everything your heart desires,from flowers till home made sausages,pickled cabbage,cheeses and cheap clothes. P1060918aaa P1060921aaa P1060916aaa P1060923aaaPeople selling all those goodies are truly polite , some might not talk English but they are friendly and get in a talk with you and they do not weight exactly:) they do it by eye and by heart:) and Slovenians have a big heart:)

Part of the Market, is also the flowers market, a beautiful footpath in which ur surrounded by hundreds of colored smiling flowers that takes you to Pogačarjev Trg , where more flowers and hand made beauties expect you.

Today I found the  “Butara” market. What is butara? found this explanation : “Velikonočna butarica (Palm Sunday bundle), or butarica for short, is a bundle of shortly thin branches(willow branches are commonly used for their elasticity) tightly bind and decorated with colored petal-shaped wood chips and young green branch tips such as pine, cypress, or even green undergrowth, to represent a bouquet of flowers. Butara (non-diminutive version of Butarica) describes a tightly bind longer-shaped objects, mostly fire wood (often beech wood is used), and is also a local term for a clumsy or awkward woman.” .


Today I got the first buturica, P1060935aaasupposed to take it with me to the church,on Easter and after that to keep it in the house to bless the home. I have to admit, is pretty cute..just hope my dog wont find it…:)
