Hi! My name is Minka, I was born in Ljubljana and I am the biggest fan of my city, so I did all of my 5.000 tours with great joy and a big smile. I traveled to more than 60 countries, including going on the expedition as the First Slovene woman to the North Pole and I am always happy to come back to my hometown. Guiding, traveling and dancing is my passion. Learn the secrets of my city, learn about locals like me, what drives Slovenes to extreme achievements, and learn about customs and traditions. Let me guide you on a path through Ljubljana to an unforgettable moments on your trip.

Tour description

Join "SMALL GROUP tour" on the spot where is easier to imagine the development of my city through different periods. Listen to stories about life in Ljubljana at different stages, so you can make your picture of how people were living, walking, working, eating, and being social in the middle ages or any other period. Through the funny, attractive, remarkable story you can get to know the city very well with all its hidden gems, secrets, and special places.

On a tour I do show you all the main sights in the Old part of Ljubljana:

  • Triple bridge
  • Cathedrale
  • Townhall 
  • Shoemaker bridge
  • Dragon Bridge
  • National Library
  • Congress square

And on the way, I show you hidden spots, less known stories, and small secrets like:

Present for Emperor Franz Josef
Famous shining nose
House where Napoleon was sleeping
Formal pig market
Optical Illusion
and many more things

In a simple, easy way you will get to know our greatest Slovene architect Plečnik, whose many works you can see also in Prague. Combining stories, hidden secrets, and Plečnik's influence on the city, your love for Ljubljana will grow. You never know, you might love it so much, that you stay in Ljubljana longer or forever. A little girl got the name Ljubljana because her parents loved the city so much.

Come and let me show you what I consider the most beautiful city in the world. 

We do a circle and we finish on Congress square. The tour takes 1 hour and 45 min. And I stay some extra minutes for all your burning questions.

I truly enjoyed the walking tour lead by Minka! She was very knowledgeable, fun and has took good care of us. She did not only show us the important places/landmarks, she also let us experience and taste the culinary traditions of Slovenia. It was like historical and food & drinks tour at the same time. Greatly appreciate the whole experience!

Minka provided not only history and information about Ljubljana, she also gave us samples of typical foods (bread, cakes, snacks) and drinks of Ljubljana. Dragon tears was a real surprise! Highly recommended!!!
