A journey back to the days of communist Yugoslavia & socialist rule

PHOTO COPYRIGHTS: National Museum of Contemporary History, Ljubljana
Some look back in sorrow, others miss the good old days when (almost) everyone was "equal", had a job, a roof over their head and food on the table. The Communist Tour takes you back to the days of socialist Yugoslavia, a unique country that defined its own approach to communism while maintaining a somewhat open-doors policy with the west. Starting with our enigmatic leader Marshal Tito, the tour explores Slovenian life under the socialist regime, visiting sites that played a role in communist days, focusing on governance, economy, labor, religion, punishment, justice, entertainment, arts and more. We try to be objective in presentation, but share true family stories, bring nostalgic items you can hold, and of course, present all content with the very same passion for which we are known. Forget what you've heard, see what life was really like.
