Slovenia, wedged between Austria and Italy, has always been proud of its unique heritage. The capital, Ljubljana, is a perfect example of this blend of German, Mediterranean, and Slovenian culture. The old town is a blend of Baroque, Renaissance, and Art Nouveau buildings, watched over by a medieval castle. Cut through the gardens of Tivoli Park to the National Museum of Contemporary History for a history of modern Slovenia, featuring crumbled statues of Stalin and a recreation of a WWI trench.

We are a fmily business which operates for already 25 years making top hand-made chocolate products with love and devotion. We create our products with innovation which reflects in divine taste of chocolate products. Our biggest pride is the taste of choccolate with salt, apple strudel, spicy taste, red pepper,... We put a lot of attention to quality of cocoa and other raw materials.This is the reason why our chocolate is made only from cocoa that originates in Latin America and is grown on plantations of Caribbean islands.We supplement innovation and quality with creativity which is shown in the shape of products and packaging. Creativity is also evident through creation of new products which supplement the variety of already existing ones.An ergonomic and catchy packaging on the outside closes up with the variety of our products which are different only by looking at them. Our first product is Prešeren praline which is with soft nougat cream,whole hazelnut and supreme milk chocolate
Although I love this shop and find the chocolate far superior to any other, the honesty and courtesy of the staff was out of this world. I left my phone in the store this afternoon and totally freaked out when I realized it was missing. After frantically searching my purse and everywhere else in our room, I finally had the brilliant idea to ask my sister-in-law to call my phone. The young lady immediate answered and was so kind. It meant another trip to the store (real punishment) but it was worth it. Too often we don't get a chance to see the real people behind the shop keepers. Great place and much chocolate will return with us!

House of Dreaming Books (Hiša sanjajočih knjig) is a bookstore in the centre of Ljubljana that boasts a wide range of Slovenian and foreign literature. We hold a number of Slovenian works translated to English, a selection of hiking and travel literature, vinyl records, postcards and other memorabilia. We regularly organize literary and music evenings.
House of Dreaming Books is my favourite bookstore in Slovenia, where I always spend quite lots of time when I come back from Australia (I’m a Slovenian immigrant living in Sydney). The staff is very kind and helpful. They use a very much personalised approach. For example, I wanted books for my son that wouldn’t be only fun, but as well educational, and they suggested something I’d never discover on my own. My son loves it, and we use learnings from the books in real life. Books open imagination and ignite creativity - and having a bookstore with a soul it just brings everything to a new level. The selection of their books is fantastic - the literature is from around the whole world. Keep doing so excellent work!!
