First Lady Village

Your unique opportunity to visit Melania’s hometown

After 2-and-a-half hour ride enjoying the picturesque Slovenian landscape you will reach Sevnica – the American first lady’s well-hidden hometown. During a short walk through the village you will learn about Melania Trump’s modest childhood. You can see the apartment block where she initially lived and the two-story house near the Sava river where her family later moved to. On our guided tour you will have a photo stop in front of the brightly painted primary school that the first lady attended. In Sevnica, a village with an attractive historical center and the medieval castle, you can experience how her life looked like during her childhood, growing up in a rural Yugoslavian village at the border with the Balkans. At the conclusion of your tour you can enjoy some free time. For an extra charge you can visit Sevnica medieval castle and taste some unique local products. If the schedule of your ship permits, you can also decide on visiting a private wine cellar. Driving back to Koper in the early afternoon.
