Full description
A tale as old as time, or as old as the river? The Ljubljanica river was an essential part of life throughout the history of the city. While fishermen and dock workers no longer ply their trades here, and, more importantly, you no longer have to worry about it flooding its banks, the river still plays an important role in Ljubljana. The areas around the river have become car-free, leading Ljubljana to be named the Green Capital of Europe in 2016, and it is the perfect place for enjoying a pleasant stroll and edible delights.

During your tour, you will explore the main arteries of the neighborhood, enjoy the hustle and bustle of people passing by on bicycles or chating on their cell phones, mothers pushing strollers, busy workers rushing from one errand to another and locals communing over their favorite cup of coffee. You will also get to know areas that are a bit off the beaten path, some hidden away spots outsiders usually never notice - an underground art gallery, a graffiti street and a cafe where you pay by time. 

This tour will introduce you to the intricacies of Slovene cuisine, reflective of the diversity of its regions and climates. Embark on a journey along the river that brought the city life, food and progress.
  • Sweet or savory traditional Slovenian dumplings with homemade ice tea or pine brandy at Moji štruklji Slovenije
  • Bread roll with Carniolan sausage or Ričet & Jota at Klobasarna.
  • A selection of Slovenian cured ham or a selection of Slovenian cheeses, paired with a glass of Slovenian wine at Ala Prsuterja
