Ljubljana’s incredible transport

Ljubljana is the capital city of Slovenia and has history as old as around 2000 BC. One can reach Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport having IATA Code as LJU, There is no railway station at the airport but Ljubljana Railway station is like 25 kms from the airport and the nearest railway station is in Kranj from where there are quite frequent busses to reach the airport and then several shuttle busses keep running between the station and the airport. Ljubljana rail station was built back in 1849 and that was the time when Slovenia used to be part of the historically famous Austro-Hungarian Empire. The Railway line connects Austria with to Trieste. The Ljubljana train station is part of European train system.

Slovenia has a modern rail network and that is why its capital city has a very busy railway station. Ljubljana is by maximum few hours distance from all stations throughout Slovenia. This way using train is the right way to explore the country and enjoying relaxing travel. However all intercity travels by train need advance booking.

People who live in Ljubljana can have long term train passes or cards valid as long as one year ans people under 26 years can avail the facility. This card gets the traveller 30% reduced ticket on local and 25% reduced ticket charges on international travel. There are travel concessions for families, children between six and 12 years age and for weekend tourists and National Holidays.

All popular car rental offices are available in the city in down town or at the airport. 18 year is the minimum age to drive a car but to hire a car one needs to have three years spotless driving history. International credit cards like VISA, DINERS CLUB AND MASTERCARD are required for car hire together with valid passport and international driving license.
