Ljubljana sightseeing tour

I like my home city very much. That is why I also lead sightseeing tours of Ljubljana or for smaller groups of turists in english language. The tour is available by prior arrangement only. The tour will take us to the most significant sites in the old city centre.

I am very knowledgeable about everything in Ljubljana. I have my ideal routes planned belolow but I can also let you decide what you want to see. The tours are just long enough to get a sense of Ljubljana and will give you tips and enough time to explore on your own.

I have many years of experiance leading groups and teaching classes in english, so language is not a problem.

The plan of the tour

I have planned this two basic walking tours for the sightseeing. One is longer to walk and you will get to see a bit more of Ljubljana. I will focus on some things that you will not see in other tours. The shorter tour is more classic.

Plečnik Market

Long tour (2.5h):

Our tour will take us to the most famous buildings in the old town and the parts of Ljubljana, that were once outside the medieval city walls.

Tour starts off in front of the Baroque Town Hall building, with the famous Robba Fountain next to it, and continues along the medieval old town streets towards the medieval part of Ljubljana called Prule. There we cross the beautiful Hradetski bridge, the first of its kind in the world.

On the other side of river Ljubljanica we will enter into medieval merchant part of Ljubljana called Krakovo, from where we continue towards architect Jože Pleznik’s Križanke Summer Theatre and the famous Baroque Church of the Knights of the Cross.
