Ljubljana Tourism is organising the second Ljubljana Tourism Week from September 23 to 29, 2023, exclusively for the residents of Ljubljana. During this event, the city's residents will have the opportunity to explore Ljubljana through various experiences, guided tours, tastings, workshops, hotel and museum visits, gaining insights into how tourists perceive the city. They can also share their ideas and suggestions for the development of tourism and visit an exhibition in the city centre that highlights the significance of this economic sector for the capital.

Ljubljana Tourism, in collaboration with numerous partners, has put together a rich program featuring exclusive experiences and special benefits for the residents of Ljubljana. This initiative aims to encourage the city's inhabitants to explore Ljubljana differently than on their everyday routes. They are invited to take some time to discover the city's diverse offerings of cultural, gastronomic, sports, entertainment, and relaxation experiences.

Thematic Tours and Exhibition Visits

Tour guides will introduce visitors to the history of Ljubljana through love stories, revealing the secrets of Ljubljana's streets and bridges. Participants can join guided walks through Tivoli Park and the Botanical Garden and explore the halls and underground of Ljubljana Castle. The Museum of Contemporary History will open its depot and photo archive to the public, offering insights into objects and photographs not usually on display. Themed tours of permanent and temporary exhibitions will also be available at the Slovene Ethnographic Museum, the City Museum of Ljubljana, Jakopič Gallery, the International Centre of Graphic Arts, and Vila Zlatica.

Workshops, Interactive Programs, and Activities for Adults and Children

Workshops will provide the opportunity to visit local artisans in Ljubljana who still preserve traditional craftsmanship, allowing participants to try their hand at weaving, pottery, umbrella repair, goldsmithing, and silversmithing. Families can embark on a Dragon's unusual journey, a room escape-style game that uncovers the city's history through puzzles and props. The House of Experiments and the House of Illusions invite interactive exploration of experiments and entertaining experiences. Atlantis Water Park offers a herbal wellness experience for adults and inflatable fun for children.

Hotel Tours, Food and Beverage Tastings

Participants can also join guided tours of some of Ljubljana's oldest hotels, including Grand Hotel Union Eurostars, the former prison transformed into Hostel Celica, the recently restored Zlata ladjica hotel, and the residential-hotel complex NEU Residences. Hotel InterContinental invites visitors for a drink with a view, and Zlata ladjica offers beer and floating potica tastings. Broken Bones distillery prepares a special menu of cocktails made from whiskey and gin, while Tektonik microbrewery offers guided tours with craft beer tastings all week. Ljubljana Castle presents a special package for seniors, including a ride on the funicular and tourist train, an interactive castle tour, and lunch.

The full program of Ljubljana Tourism Week, with detailed information about each experience, is available on a dedicated website hosted by Ljubljana Tourism and at the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) on Adamič-Lundrovo nabrežje 2.

Exhibition "Turizem dela Ljubljano" and Collection of Citizens' Input

On Stritarjeva Street, Ljubljana Tourism has organised an exhibition to inform citizens about projects in Ljubljana funded with tourism-derived resources. They also invite residents to share their opinions and suggestions regarding the further development of tourism in the capital city through an online survey or by visiting the TIC.
