  • Licensed local tourist guide for Ljubljana
  • Licensed national tourist guide
  • a good knowledge of history and local archeology

In 1999 I graduated in Archaeology at the University of Ljubljana what gave me a profound knowledge of history of the town. In the meantime I was studying Italian language and Italian culture.

It seems important to me that I am always up to date on current events and attractions in the city and interesting facts in various fields. I strive for guiding that is interactive and allows visitors to participate and also express their opinion.
I’m passionate about sharing with my guests the colourful and unique history of Ljubljana. What I like the most is the combination of the modern city, old town and the vicinity of nature.

I am also a licenced guide for Slovenia which means I can offer a range of tours, depending on your particular interests. When visiting Slovenia, visitors are impressed by its vibrant history, beautiful nature, rich culture, very delicious food and good wine.

Without doubt, Slovenia is a “must-see” as an European destination.
Welcome to Slovenia!

Ljubljana city tour – THE HIGHLIGHTS

Let’s discover Ljubljana, our capital, together!

Its long and rich history invites us to explore and stroll through small and large squares, wide roads and narrow streets, countless bridges and to look up to the imposing facades of its buildings and numerous churches. The Ljubljanica River winds past us, silently following and co-creating the course of history for thousands of years. Its riverbed still harbours Celtic spears, Roman pottery and certainly some medieval artefacts.

In addition to its history, architecture, the river and the very pulse of the city, you will get to know the important individuals and their stories who have had a decisive influence on the city as it is today.

Get to know the life of the inhabitants through a fun and interactive experience with a local city guide!

Welcome to Ljubljana!

Ljubljana city tour and Ljubljana castle

Let me guide you, so that you will have an unforgettable experience!

Get to know Ljubljana and its castle, a key landmark of the city. Behind its walls it hides many curiosities and adventures.

The Viewing Tower is the highest point in Ljubljana, and thus provides fantastic views of the city, surrounding hills, all the way to the Kamnik and Savinja Alps.

Throughout history, the castle has had various functions, and for many decades it was also used as a prison. Do you maybe know which famous Slovenians and foreigners have served their sentences there?

The permanent exhibition is on display in the renovated spaces of the penitentiary cells below the Palatium.

In today’s Erasmus’ tower, there was a prison for noble prisoners named after Erasmus of Predjama, the Slovenian Robin Hood.

Before the castle was restored and some parts were rebuilt at the beginning of the last century, the ruins were home to many families, students of the newly founded university and some famous citizens of Ljubljana. Perhaps you know which ones?

Let’s explore the Ljubljana castle!

Ljubljana city tour and a boat trip on Ljubljanica river

Let’s explore the city together, this time from a water perspective! The Ljubljanica River once played an important role in the daily life of the city’s inhabitants. It was used to transport freight, timber, people and food. In Ljubljanica they fished, swam and held feasts and competitions for fun. Life was lived by and on the water. Without the river, there was no life. That is why it has a rich history and many stories related to it are still remembered today. Like the one about rogue bakers. The dishonest baker was first fined, followed by a public punishment.

On its way to Ljubljana, the river flows through the unique natural landscape of the Ljubljana Marsh which is a protected area. You will find out why the Ljubljanica riverbed is one of the most important archaeological sites in Slovenia and what used to happen on and near the water.

Do you know why the Ljubljanica River has a special position among Slovenian rivers? And how come it’s poetically known as the river of seven names?

Join me and find out the answers to all these questions!

Ljubljana city tour and architect Jože Plečnik

Let’s discover Plečnik’s Ljubljana together, and find out why the city is an urban phenomenon whose value has been recognised also by UNESCO!

This tour is dedicated to Jože Plečnik, the greatest Slovenian architect and one of the giants of European architecture during the first half of the twentieth century.

Jože Plečnik (1872–1957) made the capital of Slovenia look unique. He also left his mark in two European capitals, Vienna and Prague.

The multitude of his creations in the city, referred to as “Plečnik’s Ljubljana”, is considered to be one of the most important works of art of the 20th century. He created a number of parks, squares, bridges, streets, embankments and even gardens.

We will get to know Plečnik’s works on a relaxed walk.

Let’s discover Ljubljana with a bicycle!

If you’re looking for a fun and dynamic way to explore Ljubljana, then this bike tour is for you! Why don’t you join us, feel the wind in your hair and discover green Ljubljana on bicycle tour? In 2016 it was proclaimed as the European green capital.

Most of the city centre is closed for traffic, making it safe and easy to ride a bicycle.

When the weather is nice, it’s just a perfect time for any outdoor activities. Ljubljana is also known for the fact that its citizens ride their bikes in any season.

Getting around town on a bicycle is easy and fast and there’s so much more to see than just the city centre.

We welcome you to stand out from the crowd and travel the easy way to experience more!

Ljubljana and its bridges

Join me for an interesting and informative tour of the Ljubljanica River and its bridges!

The Ljubljanica River, which flows through the centre of Ljubljana, has always played an important role in the daily life of its inhabitants.

Do you want to know which legend is connected to the foundation of the city and why the dragon is the city’s symbol?

But if there’s a river, there must be a bridge! Indeed, Ljubljana has many bridges. Some of them have become symbols of the city, without which we can no longer imagine our capital. A bridge is also a symbol of integration, of overcoming different boundaries and of trust, all of which are positive values.
On a relaxing walk along the river, you’ll discover the embankments, which are the most picturesque part of the city, where cafés, taverns, restaurants and shops are situated. It is one of the centres of social life in the city, and is therefore very lively and colourful, especially in spring and summer.
