Slovenia travel: The capital Ljubljana is the starting point for a wide range of excursions. Ljubljana is located in the heart of Slovenia, along the banks of the Ljubljanica River.
A small country with a great heart: getting around is generally quick and easy.
Slovenia has an excellent highway network connected to neighboring countries. However, the explosive growth in car ownership has meant tougher times for public transport, and bus schedules in particular have been slashed, so some planning ahead is required. Services are sparse on Saturdays and very limited indeed on Sundays. If you hire a car in Slovenia you will get a level of mobility and self direction that you won’t get by train or bus.
Slovenia is well connected to all its neighboring states by train. The most popular routes connect from Wien in Austria (in good weather, this journey across the Julian Alps is spectacular), from Venice and Trieste in Italy, from Budapest in Hungary and from Zagreb in Croatia. All train lines converge on the capital Ljubljana.
Ljubljana Brnik is primary international airport situated north of the capital Ljubljana. The airport is the hub of national carrier Adria Airways, which flies to most major European cities and various Balkan destinations. Another convenient gateway especially to western Slovenia is via Trieste airport in Italy or Klagenfurt, in Austria, which are only an hour’s drive from Ljubljana.
