In December, the centre of Ljubljana is wonderfully vibrant. Its streets host a festive fair and countless other free events. In the beginning of December, Maribor also starts to glow in a festive atmosphere, with the switching on of the Fairy`s Ball festive lights that weave through the old town centre. Plus there are outstanding Advent concerts on the Slovenian coast and world sporting events in the December lights of Lake Bled.
