In order to stop the spread of the new coronavirus and to manage the epidemic, Slovenia has suspended all public transportation as of Monday, 16 March 2020. This applies to all public bus and railway transport, gondolas and funicular railways. Only taxi transport is allowed under special conditions.
All travellers crossing the Slovenian border will be informed via text messages of the preventive measures in force in Slovenia regarding the coronavirus.
Please follow the up-to-date information and recommendations published for visitors to Slovenia on our dedicated webpage.
Take a train to Slovenia
A train ride is one of the most comfortable ways of travelling. It is quite simple to come to Slovenia by train from all of its neighbouring and many other countries. Slovenia is connected to Croatia, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Czechia, Germany, and Switzerland, and indirectly also to other European destinations. You can also come to Slovenia by night trains with sleeping cars. Slovenia is a part of the Eurail Global Pass system, which means that this ticket can also be used to travel to Slovenia. Explore international connections and extend your adventures in a comfortable way.
You can also travel by rail from the nearby airports – check the direct link between Trieste and Ljubljana.
Around Slovenia by train
The railway network in Slovenia is also ramified. You can find a lot of useful information on the website of Slovenian Railways, and recommendations for day trips by train around Slovenia or abroad, a list of affordable connections, and a search engine for timetables that will help you plan your journey are also available. You can purchase your ticket online, at every railway station or from the guard on the train.
Take your car on the train
You can take Motorail to go through Slovenia’s longest tunnel through Mt Črna Prst leading into Bača Valley, taking you from the Gorenjska region to the Primorska region, more specifically from the Bohinj Valley to the Posočje Valley.
Experience a very special adventure by taking a train driven by a steam engine. The Museum Train travels on a centuries-old railway line from Jesenice to Kanal on the River Soča. Your journey on the Museum Train must be booked in advance.
You can also take a train to have a relaxing getaway at a spa. The Spa Train brings you to the immediate vicinity of the Zdravilišče Laško Health Resort and the Terme Olimia Spa. With your train ticket, your fun day at the spa is even cheaper!
Take a train to the mountains
Are you in a mood for a hike? A train will also take you to some starting points for hiking: to Lake Bohinj, Lake Bled, to the foot of the Pohorje Hills, the foot of the Velika planina plateau, etc.
Small tourist trains
A true adventure, especially for the youngest visitors, is a ride on small tourist trains. This is a comfortable way of exploring towns, cities, and other interesting areas with experienced guides. Small tourist trains take visitors around Maribor, Izola and along Lake Bled, and you can even take one to the underground in Postojna Cave.
