LJUBLJANA POST-COMMUNIST TOUR

This walking tour discovers Ljubljana through the unusual relationship between the Communist past and Capitalist present, analysing the influence of Josip Broz Tito, Socialist Yugoslavia and workers’ self-management on today’s life in independent Slovenia. It showcases amazing examples of Yugo-nostalgia, brutalist architecture, communist monuments, cult of personality, art censorship and the secret police jail. Get ready to learn why Yugoslavia’s type of Communism was unique in the world, embracing as much the American pop culture as it did the one-party system. Plus the amazing Yugoslav punk music scene, Coca-Cola’s communist factory, Luka Dončić’s predecessors who became three-time cold war basketball world champions and other unbelievable stories from one of the most extraordinary times in Slovenia’s history.
