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.

Lovely tour in a beautiful city. Ljubljana has limited Jewish heritage, but I still enjoyed listening to Mateja.

A different perspective of beautiful Ljubljana, and revelation of the dedication of the never tiring tour guide Mateja. We trudged through puddles beneath her umbrella and stood under chestnut tree branches. Mateja speaks with passion and interest about her lovely town in an unrushed, engaging manner. Her purposeful, steady gimbal control is perfect for wonderful snapshots. Ljubljana is as lovely on a wet day as it is in the sunshine and the night lights of the city. Join Mateja for a memorable experience.
