    The Dane Zajc Writers’ Studio is located in Praprotnikova Street (Praprotnikova ulica) in Ljubljana, a 10-minute walk from the city centre. In this apartment, Dane Zajc was living and working for some years at the end of his life – so the residence features many testimonies to his life (e.g. paintings he was receiving as gifts, furniture he used, some personal objects). The residence measures 48,70 square metres, it has two bedrooms and a kitchen, a bathroom and an enclosed glass balcony. The smaller bedroom has a bed, a desk, and a cupboard, while the larger one contains a “reading corner” and leads to the balcony. In each bedroom, there are bookcases stocked with translations of Slovenian authors and with books that have been left there by other residence guests. The apartment has a wireless network, a kitchen with basic utensils for cooking, a washing machine and an iron. Cleaning service of the studio apartment after the resident leaves and a change of bed linen and towels are provided.
