Ljubljana is one of the smallest European capitals but it still has a very rich heritage. One of the sometimes forgotten parts of its history is its Jewish heritage. Jewish people had already settled in Slovenia by the Middle Ages, they were later expelled in 1515, made an important impact on the history of Venice and other cities along Adriatic, returned in the 19 Century, and were prosecuted during WWII as well as in the years after.

Mateja is addicted to tourism. Being active in this industry for over 30 years and still enjoying -have never got bored. As a professional historian, as an independent entrepreneur and researcher in tourism have always topics to be discussed. My moto is »Life is a box of chocolate; you never know what you will get.« Every day new travelers, every day a new challenge, every day a new opportunity. Let us be open-minded and embrace it.

Didn't expect to learn so much from this tour with Mateja besides the beautiful sights of the place, and I'm so glad I did it! Fun yet educational

A really interesting tour where Mateja showed us the area that illustrated Jewish history over the years.

It doesn’t seem that there is much of a Jewish presence in this city.
