Overview

Nestled under the Julian Alps, just south of Austria and east of Italy, the Slovenian countryside is magnificent.

Tiny and progressively proud Slovenia is undoubtedly one Eastern-European country that quickly got up to speed with its Western rail counterparts—as long as you stay on the main lines.

Nestled under the Julian Alps, just south of Austria and east of Italy, the Slovenian countryside is magnificent ; so don’t limit yourself to its thriving hubs or emerald blue coast. The inland’s scenery and cultural heritage is superb. And trains let you leisurely roam the country, while enjoying dazzling window views.

The major rail line links Ljubljana (the small-town friendly capital that’s a perfect base for all your travels) and Maribor, the second-largest Slovenian city. Modern, tilting trains operate on this route, with travel time well below two hours. Other state-of-the-art services can be found towards the Croatian cities of Zagreb and Pula. Domestic trains offer free seating, so simply hop on board with a ticket or a rail pass. There are buffet cars on long distances trains, but no domestic night trains. And, first class is definitely worth the extra.

Local or short distance services don’t operate under the same standards, but are still a good choice from Ljubljana to the healing climate of Lake Bled (or just 16 miles further, the gorgeously blue Lake Bohinj). Or, take the train to Jesenice and enjoy a modest mountain hike.

Ljubljana is also well connected to neighboring capitals with direct services to Zurich, Vienna, Venice, Zagreb, Prague, Budapest, and Munich. Some of these international services require a reservation that you can purchase locally. You may want to consider traveling with a pass, or just buy individual tickets here at Rail Europe. Chances are you’re probably not traveling thousands of miles in Slovenia, so basic tickets might be your best deal.

    "We used the 3 country travel pass. When planning your trip, be sure to lay out all the days you will travel so that you can use the pass for the long journeys. Sometimes its easier and cheaper to get a day pass at the station when doing day trips and conserve on the number of days of your Rail Pass. It was convenient, good value for the money and nice to sit back and enjoy the scenery. "

    "After this trip a lot of mu friends are asking me how did it go. It was very convenient. Personnel on the stations and in the trains were very kind and service oriented. Our journey was done with no big delay and with good options like going to prague and innsbruck. Great value for the money. Whenever we'll go back we'll be using this choice. Thanks for the help and service. "
