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 7.000 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

 This additional tour is for you in case you did already the "Tour of Ljubljana with the first Slovene at the North Pole" and you want to know Ljubljana better than the average visitor. Take time and walk with me on the Dragon path. learn more about why Ljubljana is a city of the dragon, where are numerous places from Ljubljana Dragon stories and try to find as many small Dragons as possible. Enjoy the amazing stories about Dragon's home - which is River Ljubljanica and discover with me a different face of Ljubljana, that you can not find in a guidebook or web. 

On a tour I do show all the amazing gems of Dragon Ljubljana:

  • First Skyskaper 
  • Main Post Office
  • Embankment of Ljubljanica
  • Fish square with the oldest house
  • Old square
  • St. Jacobs church
  • Formal pier

And on the way, I show you hidden spots, less known stories, and small secrets like:
Journey of First Elephant
Plečnik's water line
Waterman - Dragon's ancestor
Statue requiring silence
House in the shape of a Bridge
and many more things

In a simple, easy way you will get to know the story of the Dragon from Ljubljanica river, and understand the importance of the city river. You will be 100% experiencing the time of the first settlers, of the Roman period, Middle Ages until the 19th century.  

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

We walk from Nebotičnik (the first skyscraper) to the Embankments of Ljubljanica (Breg). The tour takes 1 hour and 30 min. And I stay some extra minutes for all your burning questions.

Tour muy bien organizado. Grupo muy reducido lo que hace que las explicaciones y rutas sean muy adaptables a lo que buscábamos. Minka y Eldis son muy simpáticos y se compenetran muy bien en las explicaciones.
