Electric vehicle charging station now also for Hotel CUBO guests

From December 2019 Hotel CUBO provides also the electric car charging service for electric vehicles , allowing guests and visitors to charge e-car in the most convenient moment of the day.

At CUBO we are focused on providing unique offers and even believe in the notion of granting quality services and electronic car charge station is one among them as electric cars are being increasingly used for holiday and business trips.

 Hotel CUBO is located in an amazing location within the city centre. Once arriving to the hotel all the top attractions are in walking distance. Therfore comfotably charging e-car within hotel for a next trip to new destination while exploring the city is a nice bonus.

The hotel guests can refuel their electric cars with ecological electricity at no charge. Use is on a first come first serve basis.

This means extra convenience for our guests and visitors who drive an e-car and a proof of our dedicated service and a first step into more environmentally friendly and sustainable hotel.

There are around 80 charging stations for electric vehicles in Ljubljana and more than 240 around Slovenia. Travellers arriving to Slovenia should not have problems to travel with electric vehicle from one part of the country to another as electric stations can be found in Ljubljana, but also in smaller villages, tourist sites and on highways. 

Tip from CUBO team: visit Plečnik house

Ljubljana will dedicate year 2017 to Jože Plečnik (Plecnik), an architect that redesigned the city of Ljubljana. With this the city will commemorate two anniversaries of his life; 145 years since his birth (23 January 1872) and the 60th anniversary of his death (7 January 1957).

Plečnik, who was born only few steps from hotel CUBO began his career in Vienna and Prague. The Czechoslovak president at the time, Tomáš Masaryk, appointed Plečnik chief architect for the 1920 renovation of the Prague Castle.

Plečnik gave the capital of Slovenia, the city of Ljubljana iconic look, by designing iconic buildings such as the Slovene National and University Library building, famous Triple Bridge, embankments along the Ljubljanica River, the Ljubljana open market buildings, the Ljubljana cemetery, the Stadium, the building of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (now the Constitutional Court) , the Mutual Assurance Company. He also renovated Križanke, the property of the Teutonic Knights from the 13th century and designed beautiful arc of funeral chapels reminiscent of classical buildings at the entrance to Ljubljana’s main cemetery, Žale.

The house (Plečnikova hiša/ Plečnik house) in Trnovo where Plečnik moved into in 1921 is opened for public. The house contains rooms displaying the artist’s valuable original furniture and personal objects, a collection of clay, plaster and wooden models of various projects, Plečnik’s personal library and his drawing utensils. Today, visitors can see the entrance hall, the corridor, the kitchen, the bedroom with the bathroom, the small reception room, the spiral staircase, the master’s studio on the upper floor and the winter garden. Due to the exceptional circumstances and intimacy of the site, the house can only be visited as part of guided tours.

At the moment there are few options where you can follow the steps of this amazing architect. You can join Walking tour of Plečnik’s Ljubljana, visit an exhibition “Plečnik above the City” at the Ljubljana castle or photo exhibition City with Plečnik’s Signature at Jakopič Promenade.

Plečnik House opening times:

Tuesday–Sunday: 10.00–18.00
Monday: Closed

Guided tours of the Plečnik House start at every full hour, last one starting at 5.00 pm.

Slovenia Ranked 7th Safest Country In The World By 2017 Global Peace Index

Global Peace Index (GPI) ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness. Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), the GPI is the world’s leading measure of global peacefulness.

Iceland has maintained its position as the most peaceful country in the world in the 2017 GPI and has been ranked as the world’s most peaceful country every year since 2008. It is joined at the top of the index by New Zealand, Portugal, Austria, and Denmark, while Slovenia is ranked as 7th most peaceful country and gained 3 places since year 2016.

The GPI covers 99.7 per cent of the world’s population, using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources and measures the state of peace using three thematic domains: the level of Societal Safety and Security; the extent of Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict; and the degree of Militarisation.

Ljubljana, Slovenia: An Overlooked Gem Of Europe

The term ‘hidden gem’ gets thrown around a lot when talking about Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Despite the growth in tourism, most people don’t know much about this beautiful little European city with great food, friendly people, and beautiful sights. It wouldn’t be described as off-the-beaten track, although it certainly hasn’t been fully discovered by mass tourism.

Overall Ljubljana has to be one of the most friendly and easy to get around cities in Europe. It is a very small city, you can easily walk around on foot which makes a change from most European cities. As a very clean and green city it’s no surprise that it has been awarded the European Green Capital award in 2016. You can easily hire a bike from one of the many racks around the city, one of them is also in our hotel.
