I haven’t even crawled out of my room yet (Cell 120) and already I’m in photo heaven.
Hostel Celica is a former military prison, dating back to 1883 (the age of the Austro-Hungarian Empire). Later on, as Yugoslavia was formed, the prison came into the hands of Yugoslav Federal Army, where it remained until 1991 when Slovenia claimed its independence.
The barracks became an artist squatter settlement and have since been converted into a hostel and centre of alternative art & culture. Over 80 artists from all over the world participated in the grand conversion project.
