Explore the sights and hidden corners and enjoy many interesting and fun stories along the way
Ljubljana is a charming capital of Slovenia and one of the most seductive European cities. It has a perfect size and can be easily explored on foot. To experience any city, you need to move through it like a local. So let`s wander around Ljubljana together! We will walk the cobblestone streets of the Old Town and see its most famous attractions: bridges over Ljubljanica river, colourful and vibrant farmers` market, St Nicholas Cathedral, Town Hall and Prešeren Square just to name a few.
Our adventure includes not only must-see sights, I will also show you tucked-away places and narrow alleys, share personal stories and city`s legends. Have you ever wondered what happened to the cheating bakers? Why do we have three bridges in one? We will find out how lively the Town Hall Square used to be and the story behind “ventilation corridors”. Dragons, trees with very long thorns and much more!
Let me show you my beloved Ljubljana!

The promenade was once a popular habit and an important social event for the locals. It was the place to see and to be seen, an opportunity to show off your wardrobe and meet your friends. Many fell in love and met their future spouses.
What was the etiquette while promenading? Who were “the promenade lions”? Did you hear the story about the elephant? Where did the locals see “moving pictures” for the very first time?
