Travel Directions

Travel to Ljubljana 

Ljubljana is located at the intersection of major European transportation routes, half way between Vienna and Venice.  It is easily accessible by train, from the highway, and by air, with Ljubljana Jože Pučnik international airport being only a short drive away (26 km northwest of Ljubljana).

By air
Ljubljana is served by Jože Pučnik international airport in Brnik with several international and low cost airlines operating from there.  There are several ways of reaching Cankarjev dom, which is located in the heart of the city of Ljubljana, from the airport: a coach, shuttle bus, rent-a-car, or taxi.

There are cheap flights from London landing at Maribor airport (Slovenia’s second largest city).  Ljubljana and Maribor are well connected and trains run roughly every hour.  The express train takes about 1 hour and 48 minutes, while the slower train is about 2 hours 20 minutes or longer.  Some trains are direct, but usually you have to change in Zidani Most.

By rail
Slovenia has a developed network of railways, connecting Ljubljana with Maribor (Slovenia’s second largest city); Graz and Klagenfurt (Austria) to the north; and Trieste (Italy) to the west.  Ljubljana’s main train station, simply called “Ljubljana”, is within an easy walk to the city centre.  The web site of Slovenian Railways displays train schedules: http://www.slo-zeleznice.si/en

By bus
The web site of the Ljubljana bus station offers timetables for all local bus connections, including the plan of the bus routes.  For most of the routes you can buy the tickets directly from the driver.  Please have small denomination Euro notes and coins ready.
