Ljubljana has a “student” feel to it, whereas small towns are more conservative. Plain, dark-colored casual clothes will take you almost anywhere. On a fall trip, I wore twill pants rather than jeans, and a simple black cotton knit jacket rather than a windbreaker, and (to judge from the number of people who addressed me in Slovene) I blended right in! As for dressier wear, many women have their “good” clothes tailor-made, so make sure that whatever you bring is well-made and fits you perfectly. Laundromats are few and far between, even in Ljubljana, and even laundries are rare. Some hotels will do your laundry, but it’s expensive. Thank goodness, I’d brought nylon underwear, but next time I’ll bring a hand-washable, quick-drying nightgown and a few extra clothes to get me through the trip.
