This tour is not just a food tour; it is also a city tour.

Admire colourful buildings on Secession street while you walk towards the place where all locals meet; Preseren square is one of the city’s most important landmarks, named after Slovenia’s national poet France Preseren. Learn about Preseren’s interesting life and unheard love in the times when Europe was approaching great changes. Cross the famous Triple Bridge, created by famed architect Jože Plečnik, a great European architect and a local of Ljubljana. Continue to the Central market where bustling stalls offer local produce and colourful flowers. Stop in front of Cathedral of St Nicholas where your local guide will tell you more about the role of religion and the Church as an institution in the country. Pass baroque Robba’s fountain and enter City hall that is sitting at the same place for more than 500 years. Continue in medieval spirit by listening tales from your guide who will make past times come alive in the old streets of Ljubljana. Stroll through cobbled streets, full of restaurants and cafes and feel the vibe of the city. See Ljubljana’s most representative square – Congress square and learn about its interesting history and many important buildings around it; University of Ljubljana, Philharmonic Academy and more. Complete the tour with a dessert and enjoy good coffee or tea. Get ready for a great experience – come join us!
