Capital presenting the story of Slovenia with a private guide

I suggest this tour to the travelers who would like to get to know Slovenia and its capital in detail. After our time together, you will be ready for more adventure in the city and its surroundings.
As you know, USA first lady Melania was born in Slovenia. As a teenager and young student, she lived in Ljubljana for couple of years as well. The four hour tour will give us enough time to discover the history of the region (I suggest we visit the National Museum with the oldest music instrument in the world) and especially to talk more about our communism and its (dis)advantages. During the tour, we will stop at spots, where Melania spent some most enjoyable moments of her time in Ljubljana. At the end of the tour, I am sure you will understand why Melania and generally, we young people from that time, longed to travel to a promised country USA for a better life.
