My name is Peter and I have been a tour guide and tour leader for over 15 years. I first fell in love with travel back in my early 20`s and never really stopped. Looking to combine my passion with something I can do, I decided to become a tour guide. The more of the world I saw, the more I realised that I live in a beautiful city. Charming, green, clean and safe, Ljubljana is everything and more one would want from a pocket sized capital. That is why I decided to team up with GuruWalks to show visitors the charms, history and hidden corners of my lovely city.

Tour description

Welcome to the walking tour of Ljubljana, the greenest capital in Europe!

We'll start the walk through the medieval part of the city, through narrow cobbled streets and across bridges that span the Ljubljanica river. The old town has many interesting sights. Among them are the Robba Fountain representing Slovenia`s most important rivers, Ljubljana Cathedral with its beautiful bronze doors representing Slovene history, the Central Market where locals shop for their next meal, and the Dragon Bridge adorned with 4 green dragons, protectors of the city.
Afterwards we will walk to the National Assembly to learn about Slovenia's time as a part of former Yugoslavia and the fight for our independence.

Since Ljubljana is a small but vibrant capital, the walk will also give us a glimpse into the life of everyday residents of Ljubljana. You will see them sitting around in cafes and discussing life, love, and how to spend the next sunny afternoon. Life here seems almost too good to be true.

At the end of the tour we will pass a former monastery turned concert hall and walk through one of the quaintest neighbourhoods, that was once well known for supplying the residents of Ljubljana with fresh vegetables.

We will finish back at our starting point.

So sign up to really experience Ljubljana. 

The minimum number of participants on the tour is four (4) persons.

It was nice to walk with Peter through the streets of beautiful Ljubljana on what seemed to be the sunniest day in a long time. Peter understood to bring some life to a city that was almost deserted because everyone seemed to use the sunshine to go to the mountains skiing. Thank you, Peter!
