Some look back in sorrow, others miss the good old days. Take a journey back in time to Slovenia's darker communist past, separate fact from fiction, see what life was really like. The tour deals with our enigmatic leader Tito, economics, government, secret police, religion, education, commerce, labor, entertainment, culture and more. Schedule: Every Mon, Wed & Fri at 15:00 Meeting Point: At entrance to University building in Congress Square (Kongresni Trg) Please Note: The tour is run by the excellent Free Tour company, so quality is superb, but it is not a free tour - price is either 10 Euro per person on scheduled tours or by private tour (from 75 Euro per group).

Hello! The free tour is 7 days per week at 11am. And the Communist tour needs to be booked in advance. When I did it, it was in the afternoon.
