    • Getting from the airport to Ljubljana

      by CoweyB Online Now Jul 10, 2016 at 5:56 AM

      Dear VT friends in Ljubljana

      I am coming to Slovenia for the first time at the end of the month. I'm staying a few days then flying out for a day then coming back. So I will have four trips to the airport and as my hotel (the Radisson Blu Plaza on Bratislavska Cesta) is offering me a transfer at €25 I wanted to see if there was a cheaper option by bus and tram.

      My second question is about how the Ljubljana bus/Tram system works and if you pay the driver or by a bus card in advance.

      All help very gratefully received!

      In May I'm going on a study trip to Ljubljana with 23 students. I would love to take them to a traditional brewery in Ljubljana (or very near). I myself have been to Slovenia many times when I was young, but never in Ljubljana, I remember the trees with the bottles, and grappa!
      Any tips (also for other fun activities) would be very much appreciated! (since we are students our budget is limited..)

    • Venice to Ljubljana

      by FinnyM Online Now Jun 18, 2015 at 3:59 AM

      What the best way to get from venice to ljubljana by train mainly to keep down extra cost because I've already got a interrail pass. I've seen a few forums on this journey but they're all really old so didn't know if things have changed, train lines changed or updated because most of them say take the bus but my pass doesnt cover that

      Place to live in Ljubljana?

      by Dee22 Online Now Jan 30, 2012 at 3:17 PM

      Hi, I really hope someone can help out on how to find a cheap place to live in Ljubljana as soon as possible. Any tips highly appreciated!

      My girlfriend and her friend has just arrived in Ljubljana to study at the university until mid-June this year. They're currently living in some dorms, but would like to find their own place as soon as possible.

      It would be perfect with just two seperate rooms and of course a bathroom and a kitchen, but might be bigger as well. Doesn't have to be right beside the university, but still pretty central.

      Are there anyone who knows about anything like that, or has some tips as of where to look online or in the city for short term appartments? (4-5 months).

      Best regards!
