Unique & Exclusive events with Traditional touch

Slovenia is a small but very diverse country. And still the only one in the world with the word LOVE in the name.

And such as that we can honestly say it is a land of special experiences. We have the mountains, sea, lakes, rivers, caves, salt lake and more…All in a reach of maximum 2 hours. So in a day you can experience amazing diversity. And we are very proud of our cultural tradition and we decide to help keep the culture alive with a help of our special Slovenia Culture Events.

And since music and dancing is our most favourite thing you will make us very happy if you dance with us our famous “polka”.



Passion for travel, culture, music, dance, LOVE for our country S(LOVE)nia and our local traditions brought us here today.

Our company Židana Marela, meaning “the jolly umbrella” became a creative travel agency dedicated to responsible tourism, authentic experiences with locals and BE COOL visitors “this means responsible tourist”  who wish to also leave a mark and make a difference in our past and future.


Our mission

is to create bridge between tourism and our country values, traditions and people.

We do more than organise events and congresses. WE support over 100 different associations across Slovenia. Children, adults and veteran performers – dancers, singers, musicians,…LIVE CULTURE with people represent our country.

Tourism is more than visits to museum, castles and churches. It is the people who bring our culture to life!
