Three young guys – experienced tourist guides – united under the name of Židana marela to fill a niche in Slovenian tourist offer, by organizing events, that combine cultural heritage, entertainment and tourism.
It started out of need in spring 2004, because we couldn’t find any place where we could take our guests that would offer evening program with folklore show, life music, dancing and – of course – traditional food and drinks. So we started to organize “Slovenian evenings” ourselves, first for our guests and later for different tourist agencies and business groups. Enthusiastic secondary-work quickly evolved to the point that we decided to start a company (Židana marela, 2007). We combined our enthusiasm and youthfulness with rich experiences in tourism, added some hard, serious work, carefully selected our partners and offered regular Slovenian evenings for individuals as well as groups.
