About the tour

Every city has something unique that no one can copy. In Ljubljana these are undoubtedly the works of our notable architect Jože Plečnik. What Gaudi is for Barcelona, Plečnik is for Ljubljana. Some of his works were already featured in our popular Highlights of Ljubljana tour, however, this time you will discover more about our most renowned expressionist architect, whose only love was architecture.

Meet your local guide


Mateja fondly calls Ljubljana a hidden gem sandwiched in the middle of South Europe, halfway between Venice and Vienna. A potpourri of different cultures, Ljubljana offers the best of almost three worlds! Be it the Latin temperament, Germanic punctuality or Slavic melancholy. Mateja is a passionate tourism professional and has been working in the exciting travel space for over 30 years. She's juggled multiple hats as a tourist guide, destination expert, local host, and tour manager. At university, she deep-dived into cultural history and discovered her love for sharing her culture and heritage with visitors, connecting common cultural intricacies and always bringing a ‘wow!’ moment into her tour. Mateja loves meeting new people and making lifelong friends across different parts of the world. On her tour, you might just pick up some fun Slovenian words! “Let's roll our tongues and learn some unique words like ŽIVJO,” she says. Bonus points if you’ve nailed what it means (without Googling!) She loves showcasing the sheer beauty of the landscape - sometimes with a couple of locals joining in. “The locals see me doing virtual tours and wonder: What is she doing? Too young to talk to herself, too old to do selfies for social media!" she laughs.

Mateja has been guiding since Apr 1988
