Ljubljana Post-Communist Walking Tour (small group)

Ljubljana Post-Communist Walking Tour (small group)

star-5

In this exploration of Tito's Socialist Yugoslavia, which Slovenia was a part of, communist gems come to life, including typical architecture, Coca Cola's communist factories, socialist punk music and Luka Dončič's basketball predecessors. Comparing the Communist past and Capitalist present, the tour shows the influence of communism and workers’ self-management on today’s life in Slovenia. It showcases amazing examples of Yugo-nostalgia, cult of personality, brutalist architecture, the "spomenik" monuments, attitude towards religion, censorship and the secret police jail. Yugoslavia’s type of Communism was unique in the world, and this tour tries to do it justice.

Ljubljana Socialist Punk Music Tour By Bicycle (small group)

Ljubljana Socialist Punk Music Tour By Bicycle (small group)

star-5
13
The 1970s and 1980s punk music in Slovenia was amazing. It was very unique in the Communist East. And very unique in the whole world! ‘Children of Socialism’, 'Via Ofenziva', ‘Ljubljana Dogs’, ‘Bastards’, ‘Berlin Wall’, ‘Ciao Bitches!’, ‘The Tattletales’ and ‘Niet’, these are just a few names of the bands that were turning an alternative scene into an opposition movement. The Slovenian punk scene was comprised of middle-class and working-class youth that was often beaten up and imprisoned by Communist authorities. However, many of the punk bands were supported by the League of Socialist Youth and were able to release their records on state-controlled labels. Come and join a bike ride back to the socialist punk times, accompanied by amazing music and radical lyrics.

This is an all-encompassing 4-hour trip to the classic and avant-garde coolness of Ljubljana.

Would you like to know more about the times when punk rockers were beaten up and imprisoned by the Communist authorities, on the one hand, and getting signed to state-controlled record labels, on the other? The 1970s and 1980s punk music from Slovenia was, and still is, amazing! It was very unique in the Communist East. And it's still very unique in the whole world! ‘Children of Socialism’, 'Via Ofenziva', ‘Ljubljana Dogs’, 'Ciao Bitches!', ‘Bastards’, ‘Berlin Wall’, and ‘Niet’ - these are just a few names of the bands that were turning an alternative music scene into an opposition movement. This walking tours takes you to the Johnny Rotten Square, Revolutions Squares (yes, a couple of them!), and other cult places. Also, you can count on listening to some legendary Slovenian/Yugoslav Communist Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave songs from a portable speaker.

This is a completely unique cycling tour which differs in all regards from the world-famous Ljubljana Feminist Walking Tour. Instead of merely using your feet, in this tour, you’re kindly invited to ride the very tool and early symbol of women’s emancipation: the bicycle! The tour which premiered at the 2020 City of Women feminist festival follows the less-travelled dirt roads of the local herstory, or rather, herstories. It presents the fascinating yet often forgotten heroines of Slovenia’s women rights while taking you sightseeing outside the city centre. The Ljubljana Feminist Tour has been around since July 2017. Offering a gender perspective on Slovenia’s capital, it has become a Ljubljana mainstay. It is a popular way of learning about feminism, women’s rights and women’s history. As a co-founder of the Global Network of Feminist Tours, this initiative has inspired the creation of feminist tours in other countries including Iceland and Serbia.

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 :).

Škocjan Caves and Karst Region – Secrets of UNESCO Heritage from Ljubljana
"OMG! This was the best Literally, we were picked up at our hotel, the tour group provided us water, and even picked us up in a nice Mercedes CLA, since our group was the only group scheduled that day, we got a nice private tour. Keep in mind for this tour, the guide will give you history of the Lipica Stud farm and Skocjan caves. Our Guide Ava was very informative and spoke clear english! I had been to postjna caves as well, but this Skocjan caves felt way more authentic and natural, and not as commercialized. Ava is only the guide to get you to the locations, she will not be accompanying you on the tours, the tours itself have their own local english speaking guides, so during that time the guide who picked you up simply waits for you to finish the tours. Lipica stud farm, you see the horses very close as you drive in and see the linden trees on each side it is very scenic. I did not pay the extra 16 euros, as you can see the horses without going through the paid tour, and wasn't that interested in horses, as i was the caves. The caves is a hike! You will be walking up and down as many as 500 stairs, but the beauty and the natural simplicity is overwhelming, compared to other commercialized caves such as postojna. You will get a chance to see how old tourists viewed the caves, and the new path which is much more accessible. The feeling of the rushing river in the caves is way more audible here and visible then other caves. The water color was amazing, just was the best, as weather won't affect you too much inside a cave! I really hope if you have the extra time you can go and do this tour, as it was very scenic and different."..."
