City tours with a twist
You can tour many Slovenian towns and cities with a local tour guide. These guides will show you the most fascinating places and share interesting stories about how locals lived in the past and how they live now. Some cities located by rivers or on the coast can be discovered from the water, too – via tourist boats, traditional rafts, or on modern stand-up paddle boards. You can take guided tours by bicycle and ride to places of interest. And some tours are even more memorable due to their unusual character and unique concept. We offer some exciting opportunities to experience towns and cities in a unique way.

On the trail of submerged villages and the mining tradition
By excavating lignite from one of the thickest coal seams in the world, the miners of Velenje changed the landscape in which they live. Several villages in the Šalek Valley have disappeared due to land subsidence. Today you’ll find lakes in their place. The guided experience takes you into the depths of the former Velenje mine, and during a cruise on Lake Velenje you can discover the trail of sunken villages by means of virtual reality.
A journey to Ptuj's Roman period
In the oldest town in Slovenia, Ptuj, the main attractions and mysteries of the town’s history will be revealed by no other than the ancient Romans. Take a walk discovering the traces of the Roman town of Petoviona in the company of guides wearing clothing that is a replica of the clothing worn in the Antiquity, and learn how people in Ptuj lived 1,950 years ago. There’s also something for wine lovers, who can enjoy a Roman version of wine, enriched with herbs and spices.
In Kranj's underground
Did you know that under the picturesque old town centre of Kranj there is a hidden network of underground tunnels? In World War II, these were used as the town shelter, but today they are the centre of various experiences. Experience a simulation of an air strike accompanied by a local guide, see interesting cave formations, similar to the ones found in natural caves, and learn about the rare cave animals that live in these tunnels. You can explore the tunnels of Kranj every Tuesday and Friday afternoon. The tours are available for groups or pairs.
Visit the Celje Castle in the company of the counts of Celje
The medieval Old Castle, full of interesting stories, legends, and mysteries, proudly towers above the town of Celje. Learn about them from guides in costume, a knight and a lady. They will take you to rooms in which knights and castle staff lived centuries ago, and they will even take you to the sinister Friderik Tower where the castle dungeon was. You can also couple your exploration of castle life with a tour of the old town centre of Celje.
Novo Mesto from the water
Although you can explore local attractions from the river perspective in many towns and cities, experiencing Novo Mesto from the River Krka is something special. Take Rudolf's raft past the old town centre and see Breg, the most picturesque part of town, and float past a cliff on which a Franciscan Monastery is perched. While on the raft, in addition to exploring the attractions of Novo Mesto, you can also taste true Cviček wine from the Dolenjska region, and you’ll be entertained by an accordion player.
