National and University Library of Slovenia (Arodna in Univerzitetna Knjiznica)
Established in 1774, the National and University Library of Slovenia (Arodna in Univerzitetna Knjiznica) is one of the country’s most prestigious institutions. Tucked away in Plečnik Palace on the edge of the medieval center of Ljubljana, the Jože Plečnik-designed, four-story building is patterned with contrasting limestone and brickwork and centered around a pair of internal courtyards. The impressive library reading room fans out around a monumental marble staircase scattered with 32 gray and black marble columns.
Address: Turjaška ulica 1, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Hours: Mon–Fri: 8am–8pm; Sat 9am–2pm

Ljubljana private walking tour with a local

Ljubljana private walking tour with a local

star-5
This tour is definitely different for many reasons: - it is run by locals and locals only. We are not only licensed tour guides but have also lived in Ljubljana for decades and know the city like our own pocket. - most of the guides have high formal education, and are glad to explain more also about economy, art, politics, contemporary social issues and how people of Slovenia live today. - the tour is a private tour. Which means we dedicate our time and knowledge to you and to you only. It also means you do not have to share the attention and squeeze with 30 other tourists, which often happens at "free" or other non-private tours. - we are aware of negative impacts of tourism on local environment. We will always present you locally made products and not products of multinational companies and will introduce you to sustainable tourism practices in Ljubljana. - the tour can be customized. - we will not bore you with numbers and years of every laid brick. The tour is also fun :).

Ljubljana on and off the beaten track with a local

Ljubljana on and off the beaten track with a local

True, you heard it right. Ljubljana is a beautiful old town with centuries-old historic buildings, narrow streets, beautiful Baroque churches and monuments, numerous street cafes and restaurants. But Ljubljana is more than that. There are also buildings and areas in the center of town that once served military or manufacturing purposes and were abandoned due to contemporary political, social and economic circumstances. Since then these areas have been populated by squatters, artists and bohemians, who have turned them into zones of creativity, liberal thought, solidarity with marginalized social groups and into zones of independent arts. Join us on this tour, where we visit alternative parts of town, and we also walk through the old town past the sights that testify to the rich history of the city from the ancient Romans through the Middle Ages to the present.

Local craft beer tasting with sightseeing - Lju-BEER-ljana tour

Local craft beer tasting with sightseeing - Lju-BEER-ljana tour

star-5
This beer tour is definitely different from other beer experiences. As we do both: we introduce you to the thriving local craft beer scene, and we also do the sightseeing on the way. In the past decade, same as in many other countries around the world, Slovenia has seen a brewing renaissance. Microbreweries have taken over a significant part of the brew market and culture of beer drinking has risen to a whole new level. Let`s taste them together! So if you are interested in art, history and architecture and you are you also a beer fan, this is definitely the tour for you! Besides: - the tour is run by licensed and local tour guides only. We like to share our deep knowledge of Ljubljana with you, dear visitors, and appreciate a pint of quality local craft beer as well; - the tour is a private tour. We dedicate our time and knowledge to you and to you only; - we will always present you locally made products and not products of multinational companies; - the tour can be customized.

This Experience is provided by a private local. Discover the historical side of Ljubljana with a passionate local who wants to share all the historical and fun facts about Ljubljana. Our excursion starts at the Hauptmann House, as one of the last-standing buildings since the 1895 Ljubljana earthquake.

From visiting the churches to discovering the history behind the French Revolution Square or even the Cobbler’s Bridge, discover unique sites that your ordinary tourist tour won’t show you.
