Tour description

Embark on a journey through time as we navigate the cobbled streets and picturesque squares of Ljubljana. Learn about a great poet and his heartache, the tale of the Ljubljana Dragon and the unique punishments given to the city's cheating bakers.

We'll visit all the important sights in the city centre, such as:

  • Congress Square (start of the tour)
  • Cobbler's bridge
  • French Revolution Square
  • Town Square with it's beautiful Robba's fountain
  • The lively Central market
  • Dragon Bridge
  • Prešeren Square 

From the busy places to the quiet ones, each part of Ljubljana has a story. As we wander around, I'll share the anecdotes that go beyond the usual facts and figures, bringing the city to life.

Come with me, be a part of a journey where every step unveils a new chapter, where the history of Ljubljana is not a dry textbook but a vivid story waiting to be told.

I had a wonderful tour with Nejc, he was very knowledgeable not only about his city but he could also answer my millions of questions on life here in Slovenia. We had a lovely walk round and I saw lots that I would not have found myself. Wonderful trip. Thanks, Nejc.

The tour with Nejc was perfect! We highly recommend it to everyone who visits the city. Nejc was extremely friendly, had lots of knowledge, encouraged us to ask questions (he could always answer them) and overall made the tour fun and interesting. We also loved the very small group size.
