You too could visit famous Melania Trump landmarks on a first lady tour of Sevnica, Slovenia. This is an apartment block she lived on as a child.

You’ve probably heard of New York City’s “Sex and the City” tour, but have you heard of Sevnica, Slovenia’s Melania Trump tour? Yeah, we didn’t think so.

Mrs. Trump’s hometown has seen a recent uptick in tourism ― with numbers of visitors climbing 30 percent higher this March than a year prior. The first lady’s popularity is on the rise, and the picturesque town is capitalizing on her rising fame.

Melania Trump tours, which take visitors to places like the factory where her mother designed children’s clothing and her childhood home, are offered by a number of different companies. Some, which provide transportation through the scenic Slovenian coastline from nearby Portoroz as well as “a tasty culinary experience” and a wine tasting, will run you upward of $300. Others, like one reported on by NPR, are a bargain, setting you back $90 for two people.

The latter tour takes you to “the first lady’s elementary school, the Communist-era apartment block where she first lived and the neighborhood where her parents still own a handsome, two-story, black-roofed white house,” NPR reports.

But the (hair)piece de resistance has got to be a burger that can be eaten along the course of the tour from Pizzeria Rondo topped with a piece of fried cheese made to look like President Trump’s hair.

Sevnica’s rising popularity has shed light on the city’s natural beauty. It boasts landmark castles and unbeatable scenery. But let’s be honest, we’d fly there for the cheesy Trump burger alone.
