This is an all-encompassing 4-hour trip to the classic and avant-garde coolness of Ljubljana. It reveals as much about its Medieval, Habsburg and Socialist past as it does about its contemporary position on the crossroads between Central Europe and the Balkans. The tour deals with the urban heart of the city, its creative soul and its independent spirit. You will see ancient monasteries put to alternative use, while discovering what Metelkova, Rog Factory, Jože Plečnik, Slavoj Žižek and Luka Dončić are all about. Not to mention amazing graffiti and street art gems. (The price includes a delicious warm snack.)
