    Ljubljana's train station is easy to reach from anywhere in the town centre, and has direct trains to destinations all over Slovenia, and neighbouring countries, including Salzburg, Graz, Belgrade, Budapest, Zagreb and Trieste. There's even a direct 3 hour train to Venice, which I found to be full of quiet, polite young Croatian men heading for...

    I was alerted that driving and parking in Piran was restricted, and that I should leave the car in the modern park, built a few hundred meters from city centre, at the end of the bathing area. Seeming a bit far, I risked to drive as close as possible, and, as a matter of fact, I could park closer to the historic center. Leaving the city I verified...

    Because Piran is very small and has narrow winding streets, only the local cars are allowed to drive in town and visiting cars will need to park outside town at a big parking lot. From there you do have a free shuttle bus, so things are really good there and you avoid traffic congestion in the old town. The bus is a white minibus with a blue and...

    In addition to the standard scheduled flights, Ljubljana has long been a fixture in the 'low cost carrier' network, and is served by easyJet from Stansted, which is the obvious option.At the time we wanted to travel, the Ljubljana flights weren't all that cheap, so we explored other alternatives. We ended up with the counterintuitive option of...

    Hi, if you are staying at a friend's place in Trieste, ask him to take you by car to Koper or to Sezana (it's only 10 km) and then take a train or a bus to Ljubljana or whatever destination in Slovenia, it would be much easier for you. For railway timetables visit www.slo-zeleznice.si. Travelling by train is a little bit slower, but more relaxing...

    Vignettes will be required on motorways in Slovenia from 1 July 2008 and will be on sale at service stations etc.. Fines if you don't have one are quite steep, but if you are spending 8 days (or 6 months) travelling in Slovenia I don't think 35 Euros is too much to pay. The motorways will certainly get you around more quickly and easily than the...

    I exclusively entered Slovenia by car on many occasions from all neighbouring countries and that is all easy.

From Hungary some minor checkpoints are only open...

It’s a fairly quite place as there are only around 6 trains to Ljubljana every day and takes around...

  • Petrol stops

    Stopped at many petrol stations for petrol. One nice thing about them here is they have decent sandwiches in the shop area of the gas stations. And they take credit cards, so you can buy stuff in the gas stations to eat and drink and pay with your credit card. This way if you're just passing thru, you don't have to worry about changing money.

One point to note is that there is no money exchange desk. Instead there is a machine where you can manually...
