The routes have been chosen by the guides themselves. Tour groups are small and intimate from 4 to 8 participants, what gives you a chance to connect with your guide. If you have some special interests and topics connected with streets of Ljubljana, feel welcome and free to ask! Guides will be glad to show you many hidden places and tell you everything they know based on their first hand experience.

Option 4: DNK NGO - Association for Nonviolent Communication (15 min walk from conference venue)

Association for Nonviolent Communication (Društvo za nenasilno komunikacijo) is a nongovernmental, non-profit and humanitarian organization dedicated to prevention and reduction of violence and its consequences. It was founded in 1996 when it was the first non-governmental organization in Slovenia with programs for victims of violence as well as for perpetrators of violence. We believe that violence is a social and public health problem and it should never be considered a private home matter. We strive for an integrated solution to the problem of violence and therefore want to prevent violence and mitigate its consequences with programs for all individuals who experience it. Furthermore, we organize preventive and educational activities to raise awareness of the occurrences of violence to the professional community and general public. We consider it very important to cooperate with other institutions and organizations, on state and European level, as violence is a problem that requires integrative and systematic approach.
