  • Beer rivalry - Lasko or Union?

    Ljubljana Local Customs

    Slovenes are generally quite laid back. But not when it comes to choice of beer. There are two major beers in Slovenia: Laško and Union. Apparently, loyalty for one's beer in Slovenia is somewhat akin to loyalty to one's baseball team in the USA.

Ljubljana really should be on your...
