Overview
In this exploration of Tito's Socialist Yugoslavia, which Slovenia was a part of, communist gems come to life, including typical architecture, Coca Cola's communist factories, socialist punk music and Luka Dončič's basketball predecessors. Comparing the Communist past and Capitalist present, the tour shows the influence of communism and workers’ self-management on today’s life in Slovenia. It showcases amazing examples of Yugo-nostalgia, cult of personality, brutalist architecture, the "spomenik" monuments, attitude towards religion, censorship and the secret police jail. Yugoslavia’s type of Communism was unique in the world, and this tour tries to do it justice.

We were in Ljubljana for 24 hours but didn't want to do the classic one-size-fits-all "Free walking tour". I was interested in the history of Yugoslavia, and specifically Slovenia's place in it, so when I read the description of the Post-Communist Tour there was no hesitation in
