Què farem?

I would like to show you the Slovenian capital in detail. After the tour, you will understand our Slovenian identity, know more about our previous homeland Yugoslavia, its (dis)advantages. Everyone has gone through his own experience in communism, for some it was a fun time, for some not enough space to develop. There are still a lot of discussions about our recent history and therefore today school kids almost don't learn about it or they go through this era very fleetingly. This discussion might be life changing for you as well! We will also talk about the reason, why more than 90 % of Slovenians decided for independent Slovenia.

As you know, first lady of USA- Melania, comes from Slovenia and left the country because of the promising future in the West. At the end of the tour, I am sure you will understand why Melania and generally, we young people from that time, longed to go abroad. I am going to share with you my personal experience, the one who stayed at home. I grew up in Yugoslavia, went to school, studied and traveled around the world, and yet, at the end, started my new career in newly established, young country Slovenia.

We are going to stroll along the unusual places: Congress Square, Republic Square, Museums Square, Ajdovščina area, . . . where the most of the buildings and monuments from Communist times are.
In case of bigger group please ask for discount.
Other things to note
It is a walking tour. Be ready to walk around for cca 3 hours.

Anytime you feel that you receive a bunch of knowledge but not as a lecture but from someone that is immersed with the area from her youth and just talks about her experiences, it creates a for a wonderful tour

Mateja was great. She grew up and lived in communist Slovenia which was Yugoslavia until 1991. I wanted a tour that gave me that perspective of living and working in a communist country and was now an independent country. This is a very good tour and Mateja is able to communicate how the country was and how things are today. If you think everyone living under a communist government would yearn for freedom you may be surprised that there are many people who ‘miss’ a government that provided for all of their needs. Highly recommend.

Not worth the price and not as described. Our tour guide was nice but the tour was not as good as the city tour we took the day before for 1/2 the price.

As someone with very little knowledge of Slovenian history, I found this to be an extremely interesting and informative tour. In addition to explaining the history of the area in relation to the different buildings and monuments we passed, the guide talked about her own experiences and perspectives of growing up in Ljubljana. I also felt very comfortable asking different questions, and she was very happy to talk about anything that I was interested in. I feel like in three hours I gained a much deeper understanding of the region than I could have otherwise done. Highly recommended!

Although more then your usual tour, the price was well worth it because it was a 1:1 tour and so you could move at your own pace and were able to engage with the guide much better than if you were in a large group. While walking around Ljubljana you will see herds of people being shepherd around by a tour guide and being yelled at through a mega phone. This is not ideal. Being able to speak normally and personally with someone made the trip well worth it. Would recommend 10/10

This was a unique way to get to know the city and its history. Our guide was responsive, knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and enjoyable. She planned breaks well with sitting and shade and we simultaneously covered a wide expanse of territory on foot. Went to see great views we definitely wouldn’t have seen on our own. Worth the money. (Both for my history aficionado husband and for me- a much lighter enthusiast but generally interested in learning about new cultures and seeing new things)
