Celica's international reputation as an innovative and welcoming hostel is well documented. But Celica is also a vibrant and essential component of Ljubljana's music and arts community. I am a musician who has travelled all over the world playing concerts and I have found very few places that offer the inclusive and creative atmosphere that Celica does. Because of this, I continue to return to Celica as both a performer and as a member of the audience. The experience is unique and irreplaceable and part of an ongoing, shared vision where the local community and the international guests at the hostel create a necessary and borderless connection and dialogue. Celica's positive impact on Ljubljana cultural scene, far exceeds it size. It would be a terrible and inexplicable loss if Celica - as we know it - was no longer burning bright.
