Ljubljana Tourism organises a number of cultural interactive tours, which enable you to get a first-hand experience of rich history and tradition of the green capital of Slovenia. The newest among them is the Moustache tour, which introduces the lives of three cultural giants who, apart from playing a major role in the Slovenian history, had something else in common.
Can you guess what?
Who says moustache should only be associated with Movember? In Ljubljana, moustache is a big thing also in May. Or actually from April until late October. By launching the entertaining Moustache Tour of Ljubljana, which explores the lives of the three Slovenian cultural giants, Visit Ljubljana has proved that getting to know history and tradition can be much fun. Cultural tour of Ljubljana, combined with cycling from one spot to another, represents an excellent chance to experience Ljubljana from a completely different perspective. It gives you a chance to cycle along Europe's Green Capital of 2016 and get an insight into the everyday lives of the three cultural giants: architect Jože Plečnik, poet and writer Ivan Cankar and painter Rihard Jakopič of Slovenia. Not only that they all had moustache, their soul was daring and brave. They left an important mark on Ljubljana and Slovenia in general, each of them in their own way. The tour will reveal their creative power and open up the secrets of the town. But that's not all: you will get a chance to visit an authentic retro barbershop and experience a number of travel-back-in-time moments.
If you want to experience the tour, which represents an ultimate fusion of culture and fun, Moustache tour is the right choice for you. Available in English, the 3.5-hour Moustache tour takes place every Friday at 3 p.m. until 31 October. It can be booked online for 45€.
