History and architecture of Ljubljana 

If you are the admirer of history and architecture, I invite you to join me on the so called “time machine” stroll, exploring the Roman period and the legacy of the Middle and New ages, the Baroque of the 18th century, trying to find an answer as to why the Art Nouveau period is so rich, discovering all the places where the famous architect Jože Plečnik worked, revealing how it looked like during the Tito’s period in Yugoslavia and learning about today’s modern architecture, so well accepted abroad. ( Do not hesitate, just contact me!


A bit of everything

By reviving many crafts, we get to know the way of our (maybe even your?) grandparents’ lives.

Would you like to know about those women of Slovenia and Ljubljana who embraced modern times, broke new ground or were even ahead of some contemporaries abroad?

As a local, I will share with you tips on where the locals stop for a good coffee, great food, where you can enjoy street concerts and other secrets kept by locals!

National museum of Slovenia

  • As a licenced tourist guide in our oldest museum – National Museum Slovenia ( – I would be very proud to reveal the story of the oldest music instrument – 60.000-year-old flute, as well as some other well kept gems.

Inspiring Slovenian cuisine

For the admirers of everyday life, I will give insights into how we live today and I will reveal to you where and how we invigorate our body and soul. A must is Ljubljana Food Tour ( – a guided sightseeing tour with food & wine tasting, a perfect getaway for your Slovenia discoveries.
