Add to MyVisit Add to MyVisit

Have you ever wondered about all the love stories that happened in Ljubljana old town? Or why March 12th is also referred to as the Slovenian Valentine’s Day? All that and so much more will be revealed to you on this special tour.

Ljubljana, with narrow streets, the castle on the hill, and the Ljubljanica river that runs through the city is a perfect place for falling in love. The tour will take you past the City Hall, where many citizens of Ljubljana tied the knot up to the Gornji trg square which has been a place for gatherings, dancing, and socializing. Many love stories started right there. Wondering about how they ended? Well, you will have the chance to find out on the tour.

Crossing the Ljubljanica river, you’ll be able to see the Trnovo beach with many willow trees, a popular hideout for young people in love. You will reach the Eipprova street, known for the annual event on March 11th, when we celebrate St. Gregory’s day or the so-called Slovenian Valentine’s Day. We will leave the story behind this folk tradition a secret for just for a little while longer. But we are certain you will be satisfied when you hear our explanation on the tour.

After that, you will head back to the Prešeren square, named after the most famous Slovenian poet. From the moment France Prešeren laid eyes on Julija Primic, she turned into his muse and sadly also his unrequited love which became an inspiration to one of the most beautiful and romantic poems in Slovenian poetry, so it was not all for nothing…

You will end the tour with a sweet surprise in the Lili Novy Garden.

You are cordially invited to come to Ljubljana to join us on the Ljubljana LUVs Stories tour and feel the love of the city. After all, love is all we need, right?
