OUR EXPERIENCE IN A PRISON CELL
In the Hostel Celica, ex prison of Ljubljana, we were staying in the French – German cell, just for us. The cell was designed by a German-born artist living in France. The cell is predominantly white and is filled with female inspiration. It is very bright and pleasant to stay in. A dark ceiling represents the night sky. Door handles on the wall represent the craving for freedom, the need to break free from captivity. The table in the cell was made from an old piece of metal that had been found at Metelkova during the renovation.
The staff were exceptionally friendly warm, welcoming and helpful. We had the pleasure to experienced the atmophere and the vibe of Metelkova.
